When you drop the Ohms and put them together, they go even lower. 2ohm + 2ohm = 1ohm which ur amp is not capable of. try this, with one subwoofer on one voice coil connect the positive (+) and negative(-) together(the ones without the dots) and the ones with the dots run to the speaker terminal like normal. do this for both speakers

To have 2x 2 ohm subs wired up, they either need to be wired in series or in parallel. In series, they will total as a 4 ohm load to the amp (or 5 ohms if 2.5 each) and in parallel, they will be 1 ohm (may be closer 1.25 ohms I think).
If this is a mono block (single channel) amp, I can't see that you will be able to wire them for a 2 ohm loan. You may have to wire them in series to be a 4/5 ohm total as the amp probably won't be 1/1.25 ohm stable.
If you're ever unsure about how you need to wire your subwoofers to get the correct ohm load to your amplifier there are a few resources to help. Usually in the owners manual that comes with your subs and your amp they include a detailed ohm load calculator. First step is to determine what subwoofers you have. Common subs come in a dual 2 ohm or a dual 4 ohm version or a single 2 ohm or a single 4 ohm version. Next determine what ohm load your amplifier is rated at. Mono "subwoofer" amps usually are rated x amount of watts at either a 2 or a 1 ohm load. This means you need to purchase the correct subwoofer combination to match your amp. If youre purchasing 2 dual voice coil 4 ohm subs then to maximize an amp you should buy a mono amp stable at 1 ohm. and Dual 2 ohm subs would need a 2 ohm stable amp wired in series parallel. A great resource for a beginner is to go to www.the12volt.com and on the top of the page find the words "subwoofer wiring diagram" and click on it. This will bring you to a drop down menu where you choose the number of drivers "subs" or "speakers" you have and then you choose the impedence in the next drop down menu. Next you'll be provided with multiple wiring options. Good luck and never think you can't do it yourself. Once you learn it's very easy to retain.
The amplifier is only stable to 2 ohms.
Assuming the cubs are dual 4 ohm voicecoils - a 2 ohm load with 2 subs is not possible.
You can only wire up 1 dual 4 ohm voicecoil sub (both positives to amp... and both negatives to amp) to get a 2 ohm mono load.

+ on amp output to + on speaker #1 to + on speaker #2. - on amp output to - on speaker #1 to - on speaker #2. This is a parallel circuit....4 ohms in parallel with 4 ohms = 2 ohms. IF it were wired in series....would represent 8 ohm load.
Dual 4 ohm subwoofers can only be wired @ 1 ohm, 4 ohm or 8 ohm.
2 ohm mono load is not possible.
You will need to use (1) subwoofer to get the 1000W out of the amp.
Wire both positives on one sub to + on amplifier and both - on the same sub to - on amplifier to give the amplifier a 2 Ohm load.
Add a second amplifier, or buy an amplifier that is 1 ohm mono stable.
You can wire both to the amplifier at 4 ohms 600W, but they will share the power and only see 300W ea.
Te dual inputsm are tied together on the output side thus having a "MONO" amp. Most class D anps are stable down to 1 ohm (check your manuel) therefore, 2 2ohm subs are a 1 ohm load. 2 DVC (dual voice coil) 4 Ohm on each voice coil will give each sub a 2 ohm load so 2 dual4 ohm V's will give you a 1 ohm load as well. Parrallel all conections.
What subs do you have? Is this amp 1 ohm ono stable?
Well first of all all solobarics are dual voice coil so you have 2 2ohm voice coils so if you wire them in parallel the sub will be pulling a 1ohm load wich would in time blow out your amp. So you want to wire both voice coils in series to produce a 4ohm load.
