Default Need help pairing these 12" subs with an amp!

Howdy guys. Been a long time since I last posted on here, but I'm going to try to come around more often. Anyways, I stumbled on a great deal - two 12" Sony XPlod L121P5'*, for $75 total. In brand new condition. Voice coil is 4 ohm, RMS is 350 watts, 1200 watt peak.

The amp I just bought off ebay is an Audiobahn Intake 8002T. RMS is 800 watts on this amp. Fan cooled, high/low crossover, all the features of a damn good amp.

So, how should I wire up my subs to this amp? Run it bridged @ 800w 4 ohm? And how exactly do I wire it to be 4 ohm bridged? I need some help!

Thanks guys.

I'd say wire the subs in series then bridge the amp. That way you will be running about 400 watts RMS (give or take a few) off the amp and not risk blowing either the subs or the amp because of low impedance or high power levels that the subs cant handle.
