are you only running the subs with the amp or are you running speakers as well?

assuming they are each 4 ohm single coil
you can bridge one sub to each channel pair
sub 1 to ch 1&2
sub 2 to ch 3&4

use a DMM to measure VAC on the amp outputs to adjust gain to be equal on both channels (and you can calculate the voltage you would get at rated power). for rated power output, call Rockford Fosgate and give them the various model/serial numbers.
