5 channel Amp - JL 500/5 or Focal FP 5.500

I'm looking for a 5 channel amp to run my system.

I can get the JL 500/5 for about $475 the Focal FP 5.500 is around twice that. Is the Focal worth the extra money.

My planned set up is...
Front end - Focal 165 KF
Doors - MB Quart QSC 164 (2 sets)
Sub - either JL 10w6 or Focal 27V2

Suggestions/advice please.................

Audison is out of my price range.
Does Zapco & McIntosh make a 5 channel....I see they make a 6.

What do you think of the JL and the Focal?
