If the speaker is a 4 ohm DVC (two 4 ohm coils), you can't wire it to get a single 4 ohm load. Try connecting one coil to each of the two rear channels. It may not be as loud but the amp should operate without going into protection.
If the two 4 ohm coils are in parallel, the amp is driving a 2 ohm mono load. That's probably why it's shutting down.

Ok.. Bridge the two sub into 4ohm than bridge to amp.
So. this how it goes.
sub1 + -
to | |
sub2 - +
amp (L) - + (R)- +
This will use the full potiental of RF 800a2 amp. I believe it like 1153 watts max out.

Wire your sub in bridged mode (4 ohm mono)
+ to + on amplifier
- to - on amplifier
(using bridging terminals)

Rockford-Fosgate claims their latest V-power 1500bd is stable to 1 ohm, and I would think that your Oldschool would also be. The 2 wiring options for 3 subs with 2 ohm dvc would give you a 1.34 ohm load and a 3 ohm load. The 1.34 ohm option would mean more watts to the subs, but the amp will run hotter. The diagrams look like this:
Using just 2 of the Kickers, you can wire 3 different ways, with final impedances of 0.5 ohms, 2 ohms, or 8 ohms. You do not want the 0.5 ohm load. It's bad for the amp. You don't want the 8 ohm load. It doesn't allow the amp to produce as much power. So that leaves only the 2 ohm, with coils in series and subs in parallel. It looks like this:
Hope this helps. If it does, please rate as "FixYa".
