Better to run it at 4 ohms than 2.
At four it'll put out about 450 rms, at 2, like 125 per channel.
You can't bridge this amp at 2 ohms;
It will overheat and shut off.

well, when I search rockford 5002 I get this amp http://www.rockfordfosgate.com/ez2/fcsscripts/Images/Rockford/2004/Amplifiers/Po werT5002_F.JPG
and this amp http://shop.extremeaudio.de/images/rockford/DSC00077.jpg

the second one is the one I am talking about, and I read its 500watts RMS to each sub at 2ohms

well, if i'm not mistaken, type Rs are 500w rms each. Are they DVC 4 ohm or 2 ohm

you'll need a 1000w rms amp

I messed up my first post. That amp should put out about 550 rms (on a bench test. Rockford's strict w/ratings).
But only when it's bridged at 4 ohms. Not run at 2 channels. And it's not stable bridged at 2 ohms.

These are the ratings on that amp:
125 W x 2 @ 4 Ohms RMS
250 W x 2 @ 2 Ohms RMS
500 W x 1 @ 4 Ohms bridged RMS

...You're gonna be underpowering your subs.
