 amp sub combo deal questions

Hello new guy here buying my first sub amp set up for my car. Well honestly I already bought it. But now while it is in transit to me I am wondering if I bought something that was improperly matched by the seller. Here is what I got and my question is this. Will this be enough power for this sub? The amp is a Kicker 10DX 500.1 Peak Power Handling: 1000 watts x 1 chan. RMS Power Handling: 4 ohms: 140 watts x 1 chan.. 2 ohms: 275 watts x 1 chan. 1 ohm: 500 watts x 1 chan. Frequency Response: 20-200 Hz Impedance: 4 Ohms Input sensitivity: Low level: 125mV-5V High level: 250mV-10V Variable low-pass filter: 50-200 Hz, 18 dB/octave Variable subsonic filter: 10-30 Hz, 18 dB/octave Selectable bass boost: 0 or +9 dB at 40 Hz Dimensions: 10-3/8"L x 8-3/16"W x 2-3/16"H The Sub is a Kicker CVR0712-4 12" 12" Comp VR sub 800 watts max output 400 watts RMS rated 12" high powered competition VR series subwoofer Mounting Depth: 6-5/16" Sensitivity: 86.7 dB Frequency Response: 25-500 Hz Impedance: 4 ohms Dual Voice Coil Sealed Box Volume 1.0 - 4.6 cubic feet Ported Box Volume 1.75 - 2.25 cubic feet Injection Molded Cone with low distortion output Stamped Steel Basket Double Stitched Foam Santoprene Surrounds eliminates distortion and unwanted noises Dual 4 ohm Voice Coils Vented Pole Cutout Diameter 11-1/8" Frequency response: 25-500 Hz Weather resistant - Suitable for marine use in additional to car applications My friend tells me that this will only be able to use 275W on this amp. Due to how it must be wired up. 275W is a far cry from the RMS on this sub. Would this be better pared with a 2 ohm sub vs the 4ohm sub that is included? Did i get screwed? Thanks
