sell it. the box you will need for that is going to be big. they like ported boxes. and the amp get a 800 watt bridged at 4 ohms. so when you hook that 8 ohm up to the amp it will get 400 watts. what do you you plan on putting this in?  the box will not fit in a small car.

by bridging do you mean run a pos. to one channel and a neg. to the other? the sub is a single voice coil but it has two pos. and 2 neg. connections. so could i run both channels on the amp to the sub?

bridged i mean run it mono. if you use a class a/b 2 channel amp comined the L&R channels together. or just buy a class d amp rated at 800 watts @ 4ohms. what is this sub going in? and dont run L+L- and R+R-. it will not work right. a 2 channel amp will show you how to bridge the amp under the speaker terminals. a class d will be you best bet.  i hope you have a station wagon for that sub.
