    What you could do to get teh most power out of it, is bridge the rear channels..

    On one of the channels plug it into the pos. input, and on the other channel plug it into the neg. input.

    Just make sure that the subs are wired to 4ohms..

    you could wire a bridged channel to each coil, but just bridging the rear channel may accomplish the same power. specs

    Assuming it's a D4 subwoofer, bridge the amp to 2 channels, both of which will be 4ohm stable when bridged, run each channel to one voice coil...
