oh and one more thing, when bridged, the amp can only handle 4 ohms, however, stereo 2 ohms is achievable.

Always list the model #'s of your equipment. If what you have listed above for descriptions is accurate, you are going to be in the market for some better subs in rather short order. That is drastically overpowering the speakers which will result in a smelly horrible death to them. Here is the correct method to wire these speakers to this amp.

Option 2 (series/parallel) = 4 ohm load
Voice coils wired in series, speakers wired in parallel
Recommended Amplifier: Stable at 4, 2, or 1 ohm mono

This uses the bridged outputs of the amp.
