Default Rockford Fosgate 800a2

hey guys, just wondering if anyone here has had experince with this amp? might be pickin' one up for a nice price to run a pair of 10s, or my single 15.. not too sure yet.. but either way, i need to upgrade from my coustic 600se .. lol

i've heard some things about this amp, such as it being called the "former grill" they catch on fire, etc.. that type of stuff, anyone had any serious problems with these types of amps? does it happen to just about every owner of these amps, or is it rare to have it happen?

I had a 500 a2 on my pair of cvr 12's and it played ok in 2 ohms it would over heat all the time so I changed to 4 ohms and it stopped overheating but as you probably figured it sucked bad ,lack of power, so I chunked it.
