Happened to me, i also had a metallic/iron smell coming from my sub... i pronounced it dead. had to buy a new one and it worked fine... if you believe its not dead then your amp is not getting enough power and most likely shutting off (protection mode), you can try buying a cap, farad 2 or better will work and is suggested for larger subs anyways

Your amp based on what you say would have no problems whatsoever with
an 8 ohm load, not even if it actually has dual 4 ohm coils and you
wire them in parallel giving a 2 ohm load (don't know your particular sub).
Every good car amp has protection circuits to prevent itself or the speakers from damage from too low loads so it shouldn't be a problem even if you screw up with your calculations. A good amp should even be capable of dealing with a dead short on a channel, zero ohms, activating protection of course.
Good luck and don't worry!

How much is your speaker max wattage?
If it is 750 or below, it can only be used on one channel, either the right or the left.
If speaker can handle 1500 watts then hook the positive speaker wire to R+
Hook black negative speaker wire to L-
Now it is bridged

if the amp has a 2 outputs then i would wire the two 4ohms together, and the 2ohm by itself. and if its a 4 channel output then wire them all sepretly, if its a 1 channel output then wire the two 4ohms together and leave the 2ohm sub out
