    Help with amp matching rms????????

    Hey guys im a young kid who loves stereos i got my summer job and have saved up for everything so i received my subs yesterday and they are each rated for 200 rms so 400 rms total.. that being said today i went out and bought an alpine mrv-m500 which is a 500 watt amp @ 2ohms.. but when i opened it up they have a certificate at which they rated the amp from the factory at 567 watt rms which is a little more than i wanted to power my subs i mean i thing 100 watts over isnt bad but i dont know about 133 watts.


    So is this to much power going to the subs? Will it hurt the longevity of the subs because i want to have them for as long as i can i worked so hard for them. so what do i do ????
