I think you're looking at the wrong numbers.

give us the RMS power loads, ohm ratings to go with each RMS rating, the amp you're using, and its abilities.

THEN we'll get you squared away 1 1200 watt 12 inch sub or two 500 watt - Last Post -- posted image.

Also the power rating means a lot less than the make/model of the speakers.

and what kind of system are we shooting for?

SPL, Just loud as balls going down the street, or just trying to find the bass that your door speakers aren't giving you?

And last question, what kind of system are you trying to put together?  Loud or musical?

As to your choices above, I'd take RF over Pioneer any day of the week, but depending on what you are trying to accomplish with the system there may be better choices than either one.

I'm gonna agree with DYohn there...

to be blunt, i'm not a fan of either of those subs, but I do understand working with what you have.

I had pyramids for the longest time 1 1200 watt 12 inch sub or two 500 watt - Last Post -- posted image.   but that was because I was being a cheap ***

I'd go with one Rockford P3 over two rockford P2's.  But, if you have your heart set on one of those two systems I'd definitely go with the rockford setup; pioneer amps and subs are junk.
