I HAVE TWO 12" DUB MAGS HOOKED UP TO A 600W AMERICAN LEGACY AMP. ONLY THE RIGHT SUB WORKS. I HAVE CHECKED ALL THE WIRES AND TAKEN THE SUB OUT OF THE BOX TO MAKE SURE THE WIRES WERE STILL CONNECTED. I HAVE CHANGED THE WIRES FROM THE BOX TO THE AMP AND STILL NOTHING.

Well as far as getting a different amp depends on what kind of subs or speakers you are trying to push. Also it depends on how much you are asking the amp to do. If you are asking a 600w amp to try and do 1000w job its just not gonna work and it will shut down.
your only choice is to run the amplifier at a 4 ohm mono load - this will not reult in the amplifier making much power.
Positive on sub to Positive on amp.
Negative on sub to Negative on amp.
This is your only possibility.
Adding a second sub in the same fashion will result in a 2 ohm load, and your amplifier will run at its rated potential.

there are many ways to wire in subwoofers check the impeadance on the sub and the stability of amp by referring to the users manuals. once you know the ohms you can check 12volt.com for wiring or give more information on your question and i will do my best to resolve it.
you most likely mess up you wiring... im not sure what ohm resistance your subs are, but if its 2ohm or 4ohm you wire straight foreward one sub all positive wires to left positive, all negitive to left negitive, and the same with sub 2 to the right terminal. BUT if your subs are 8ohm then wire it with all positives from both subs to LEFT positive and wire all negitive wires to RIGHT negitive... and see if that helps and good luck!
