whoever told u that is an idiot .. many subs dont need near there rms value to reach its full potential.. RMS is a thermal rating.. so subwoofer wise if u have a 500 W rms subwoofer it means the sub can safely take 500watts before u risk melting the voice coils.. i dont know what your asking about the rockford but that amp will work with a type r

I think what he he means by a little more is that the higer you raise the volume the more distorted the sound can get. by supplying slightly more power than what is needed you won't need to turn the volume up as loud reducing distortion. It doesn't need to have more, but some say it helps.
