WITH 2 DUAL 4 OHM SUBS YOU WILL BE ABLE TO WIRE TO 1 OHM OR 4 OHM FINAL LOAD. NOT THE BEST FOR THAT AMP, DO YOU ALREADY HAVE THE AMP?

here is a link to how you can wire the voice coils up on the subs.

You just gotta find an amp that does 400 to 500 rms at either 1ohm or 4 ohm, which a decent 2 channel amp bridged could do it at 4ohm or a mono block at 1 ohm.
