You cant... 1, 4 or 16 ohms are your only choices. Wrong woofer choice, or wrong amplifier choice...
If you only ran one coil per woofer, you could get a 2 ohm load, but be mindful of your reduced power handling. Allow 25% less power capability.
It all reminds me of something that Molière once said to Guy de Maupassant at a café in Vienna: "That's nice. You should write it down."

I personally don't see any problem with it. As long as your woofers are rated 500 watts each, 400 should be safe, thermally speaking.
