Pick your subs first and buy and amp to suit their needs.

Alpine M650 would be nice
or the Rockford 600bd
both would be right at 700 rms
but the scenario you gave would be run in series and those amps would need a parellel setup at 2 ohms

Sounds like a DVC Subs, The way you described how you are gonna wire the subs are wrong! Connect 1 Positive to the positive on the amp, and 1 Negative of the sub to the negative on the amp, than connect the positive and negative together on the sub!

Here is some images of how to do it! Check to make sure your subs are Dual 4 Ohm or Dual 2 Ohm

no those would be SVC subs. Just go + to the amp and - to the amp, no tricks needed
