Powering each voice coil on separate channel is never a good idea. All you need is a spike/surge in one of the channel and you will fry the sub.
I don't think your amp can handle 2ohms bridged. So wire the sub's voic coils in parallel for a 2ohms load and then attach it to one of the channel on the amp. According to your post, that'll give you 500w x 1. That's 100w extra compared to the way you have it set up.
