Need advice on how much amp power is needed

Hey im thinking about hooking up a the new thousand watt rockford fosgate power amp to two kicker 10 inch L5s. i was wondering if the amp had enough power to run them both at capacity. the amp is rated at 500W x 1 @ 4-Ohms
750W x 1 @ 2-Ohms 1000W x 1 @ 1-Ohm. each sub is rated at 900 peak/450 RMS.
thx
