you need a Power Distributor for easier installation. You should get one Power dist. with 0-4 gauge INPUT and 2 or more 4-8 gauge OUTPUT.
Capacitor usually have 2 possitive and 2 Negative terminal. Connect your Power line to one pos. terminal of your Cap and another Pos. to Power Distributor INPUT. Ofcourse Ground your Cap to the body of your car and leave 1 negative terminal empty (DO NOT Ground Capacitor with AMP). Now you have 2 or more Power output from your Power Distributor, just connect your amp. normally....
Note, since you will run both of these amps on the capacitor, you should have 1.2+ farad (recommend 2+ farad, since every 1 farad for 1000w).
