Will these work together?

Would these work together. I want to hook up 2 subs in parallel to them.

SUBS: Rockford Fosgate P210S4

MONO AMP: Rockford Fosgate Punch P3001

I Saw these up together at a local store. but i figured the amp would blow the subs because of the wattage. but i dont know. i might be wrong. Please help me,

BTW, I am not going to buy them from Crutchfield... Im just using it for showing the stuff.

It would work, but sound horrible for the price (unless you can get EVERYTHING for under $300). Those subs really dont cut it...and with that amp you'd be underpowering them severely (each sub would only get 75 watts). Stay away from Rockford Fosgate...pay too much for too little in return. Volfenhag DVC subs (www.ikesound.com) run $50 and will outpound AND sound better than Rockford P3's. Look into a mono amp from Hifonics.

how would they be only getting 75 watts a piece? The amp says that it puts out 300watts by 1 channel at 2 ohms And that is what i would be doing. running it at 2 ohms. Two 4 ohm subs hooked up in parallel to a mono amp

Sorry, was thinking dual 4-ohm. They would get 150 a piece from 300rms @ 2ohm, which isnt underpowering them, but you're definatley not sending clean power to them through a class AB amp and especially running it at 2ohms. For subs dont settle for ANYTHING less than a Class D mono amp. Plus running a class AB amp at 2ohms isnt too smart to begin with.

Like I said, look into the Volfenhags (10x better than RF P2's) and a Hifonics mono amp.

I wouldn't get the punch series, they're Rockford's cheaper brand, and really no better than the competition. Rockford Power is actually a good brand, I've been very satisfied with my power stuff, never have had a problem, and good quality, though a little pricey.

As T-Bird said, class D is the way to go, in a sort. If you're extremely pickey about quality, AB all the way. If you want a good power/price ratio, and not go through alternators like condoms, class D is the way to go. I personally would go Class D, though my Power amp is AB, I regret it now that I have more power running through it and everything cuts out at idle.
