I would run a 6 inch trunk line (reduced to 5 inches at the DC inlet) and drop 4 inch lines to the various tools. While the 5 inch reduction will reduce flow somewhat, it will reduce flow much less than a 5 inch trunk line. With a 2 hp DC you should have enough flow to keep dust/chips moving in the 6 inch line.
