    Well the HX2 Power, now depending on if they are the 12's can handle 150-1000 watts RMS. Now the Powers have 2-2ohm VC's, both of them run in series will give you a 4 ohm load, and both subs together will show the amp a 4 ohm load. Now the RT2600 will give out 750 watts RMS. The 600 watts is when the car is off. The alternator ups the voltage when the car is running to 14.4v's I would say that the Fosgates will bump with the 375 watts each, and you shouldn't have any problems. If you bought the MTX amp it should of came with a "birth certificate", and that shows you when they tested it at the factory how much it actually puts out. I have the RT2200 and that is rated at 280 watts @ 4 ohms, on the birth sheet it was 320 watts??? I have bet on the amp and blown a VC on a MTX 6000 10, and it still keeps pumpin out the tunes, great little amp. Now as far as the Fosgate outt bumpin the Polk's its a good chance, i have no experience with Polk's so its hard to say, chances are VERY high though. Good luck. If you have questions on wiring the subs check out http://www.eatel.net/~amptech/elecdisc/spkrmlti.htm
    Good Luck
