I'm a bit confused. For Alpine amps, the "M" prefix is for monoblock (aka single channel) amps and the "F" prefix is for multichannel amps. The only M550 I find is an MRD-M550, which is a monoblock, not a 4 channel like you say.
Unfortunately, I can't give you accurate help until we know weather it's truly 1 channel or 4 channel. Then I'll be glad to help!

The best you can do is connect the dual 2 ohm voice coils of each respective sub in series (4 ohms total per sub) and then connect each sub to one channel of the amp. This will give each sub 1000W, which is the rated maximum from Kicker.

SOURCE: wiring the coils together
For each sub, tie the DVCs in parallel ("+"s together, then "-"s together). This will make the subs look like 2 ohms to the amp. Then, put one sub on each channel of the amp. That will put about 280W rms onto each sub, the max for the amp.

yes it should work fine i would bridge them up to 4 ohms each speaker then bridge them back bye conectin them on the amp by puting the red with the red and puting the black with the black if the amp only has 1 chanel then put both speakers red on the same positive on the amp and same with the negative now to bring the ohms up to 4 ohms conect the solid red to the black with dot with a short wire ok then the ones that are not run together will go to the amp giving offf 4 ohms and with the 2 speakers bridged together thay will reduce to 2 ohms witch means that eatch speaker will get about 600 wats of rms from the amp

Your PSW815 has 2 ohm dual voice coils allowing you to better match the impedance to your amp. Each voice coil is 2 ohms. If you wire them in parallel (both +'s together and both -'s together and then to the amp terminals), the sub presents a 1 ohm load which is too low for most amps. Wiring the voice coils in series (one + to the other - and the remaining + and - to the amp terminals) results in a 4 ohm load.
This link shows the wiring diagram for both options. If you know for sure that your amp is 1 ohm stable, use Wiring Option #1. If the amp is not 1 ohm stable, use Wiring Option #2.
Hope this helps.
