Default who can tell me best way to wire my subs

i have two 4 ohm subs and a 1000 watt two channel bridgeable 2 ohm stereo stable amp. can i wire the subs parallel, and if so, can i wire them using the bridged way on the amp. or how would you recommend i wire them up to get the most out of the subs and amp. thanks.

Sub 1 -> Channel 1
Sub 2 -> Channel 2

If the amp is stable down to 2 Ohms in Stereo mode, it will probably be stable down to 4 Ohms in bridged mode.

You could operate them in in series in bridged mode, but I see no benefit to connecting them each to their own channel. Don't operate them parallel in bridged mode though for the abovementioned reason.
