5 channel amp vs multiple amps?

so im installing 4 speakers and 2 subs in my car.
what are some pros and cons of a 5 channel amp to power all of them or a mono amp for the subs and a 4 channel amp for the speakers.

2x 6.5" @ 50 RMS 4 OHMS
2x 6x9" @ 60 RMS 4 OHMS
2x 12" kickers 150 RMS 4 OHMS

Typically mono amps have more flexibility with impedance loads (stable to 2ohms or 1ohm). Some 5 channel amps are only stable to 4 ohms or 2 ohms on the sub channel. All depends on your amp.
