Default Will this sufficiently power my class D amp?

I have a class D amp kit that requires dual 12V power input and around 80VA. Can I use two 12V 3.5Amp wall warts?

It's not an ideal solution. You have to be very careful; if they have grounded plugs you will cause a short when connecting them in series.

They have only two prongs and must not be grounded plugs. Would I be connecting them in series? I thought they would be in parallel? I would simply be combining their grounds, and connecting each of the 12v leads to the separate inputs on my board (12v-0-12v).
