    Is this sub compatible with this amp?

    I already have this amp:

    Rockford Fosgate PRIME R1000-1D Class D Monoblock Amplifier

    I did have a JL audio w1 hooked up to that amp but the JL crapped the bed. =[
    I really just do not have good luck with JL's..don't ask me why..I do not know. So I am not planning on getting another one.

    Is this sub compatible with the amp I have?
    Rockford Fosgate P2D2-12 (P2D212) 12" Dual 2 ohm Punch Stage 2 Sub

    I do not really know a thing about ohms and power handling..etc.
    Getting another amp is not an option either so please do not advise me to do so. I just want another sub that will be pretty reliable and not breaking my bank.
    I am so upset right now.. I cannot describe the horrible feeling when I am in my car and now listening to music with no sub. It really nauseates me.

    That Jl was a 250 watt sub. You killed it. Did you set the amp up or a shop? Anything woofer thats abused will fail, learn what you are doing before you smoke more woofers.

    Re: Is this sub compatible with this amp?

    ok..well I cannot become an overnight professional on this subject. Thats why I am turning to others for help and some advice. Anything involving electrical crap is just not my forte.
    If the RMS for that amp says 1000 watts for 2 ohms and 500 watts for 4 ohms, does that mean the sub has to have at least that RMS too?
    So if that RF sub says RMS; 400 watts and peak:800 watts at 2 ohms, then basically that amp will blow that sub as well?
    Also, what exactly does it mean that the amp is monoblock?
