Need Help Bridging 2 Amps to 1 Sub

Okay I have a Bridging Module and two 1000w amps that are stable at 1 ohm. I have a 4 ohm DVC subs that is wired @ 2 ohms. I want to bridge the amps to the sub so that it will drop it to one ohm.... I was told two different ways to do it, and neither worked and I have no idea what to do. If anyone could tell me how to do it, that would be awesome.

I've tried running the RCAs to the bridging module. From the module's output I connected the Left to the Left RCA of one amp and the Right to the Right RCA of the other. Then I wired the L- from the amp I hooked the Left RCA into and the R+ from the other amp to the sub. Both amps turned on and the module is wired to a 12v source and grounded correctly. But the sub didn't pound.

Then, I also tried running the RCAs to the module and then from the module I ran both RCAs to one amp. I then connected another set of RCAs from the output of the first amp to the 2nd amp and wired the sub from the L- and R+ of opposite amps and it still didn't work.

Am I doing it the wrong way or did I maybe just mess up?

Does anyone have a wiring diagram that would help? I'm getting reeeeeally frustrated //content.invisioncic.com/y282845/emoticons/banghead.gif.8606515f668c74f6de0281deb475b6fd.gif cuz there is a competition tomorrow and I need to start getting some points

 
What kind of amps and briding module. If I remember correctly, orion used to have bridging modules. They allowed the amp to be ran in a 1 channel mode or bridged (duh). Anyway some of the old old orions weren't able to be bridged without the module like newer amps are. I dont belive you can accomplish what your wanting to do with the equipment you have. One doesn't change amp configuration to change the ohm load the amp sees. You have to change how your speakers are wired or change the speakers themselves to get the right impeadance you want..
