Default amp reccomendations

Ok, I am doing a REALLY stealth install in my BMW including a pair of Earthquake SWS 8's under the seats and am looking at the following amps.
The sub channel can be no more power than 300w rms at 2 ohms Other 4 channels can be around 50-100w rms at 4 but 50-75 would be ideal. Fosgate is the cheapest but not ideal for stealth mounting due to size.


Alpine MRX-V60 (alpines New 5 channel
4 ohms: 50 watts x 4 chan. + 200 watts x 1 chan.
2 ohms: 75 watts x 4 chan. + 300 watts x 1 chan)
Alpine PDX5 (4/2 ohms: 75 watts x 4 chan. + 300 watts x 1 chan)
Fosgate R600-5 (50 watts RMS x 4 at 4 ohms + 300 watts RMS x 1 at 2 ohms)
what do you all think?

Look into the massive amps. The n2 would be perfect for you subs and is tiny.

Only gives me 150w on the subs (75w per sub)otherwise I would have had them on the list.

I really like the arc audio amps:
Arc Audio this one amp can powere your whole set up
These 2 amps will work for you, even thought they are multiple amps they are very small and well built

I really like the 1st one but I am stuck with a 2 ohm mono if I have a 5 channel. (it is only rated for 4 ohms mono load)

I am presently running a Arc Audio KS-125.2 on the subs in stereo and i really like it but the amps will be going under the rear floor and space is VERY limited as well. The 2 Arcs will take up too much space.

Many thanks for the input though!
