You know what I don't get though... why do you need an amp rated more than the subs?

I just bought 2 subs 250 watts RMS each, and the guy I bought them off of was running them at 75 watts RMS each and it sounded pretty decent. Anyways if I get a 600 watt amp then won't the subs blow since I'm running 300 watts to each? So wouldn't it make sense to get a 400 watt RMS so each sub gets 200 rms and thus doesn't blow? I realize I'm way off here but someone tell me what's wrong about my thinking

Also what kind of amp would I need, a mono or 2 chanell or what? And what are ohms (i know they're resistance but dont' know what they mean when it comes to amps)
