I am bying one of these amp's and two of these these Subs

I plan on wiring these speakers in parallel to get them down to 2 ohms
but this AMP is NOT stable down to 1-Ohm so i can't just wire the subs in parallel, how can i keep these speakers at a 2-Ohm load? (Or Can I??)

I could wire them in series to create a 4-Ohm load (2+2=4) but would rather keep them at 2-Ohms

That Alpine puts out 700 wrms at 4 ohms, and your subs are 350 wrms. Wire each sub in series to get an 8 ohm load, then wire both subs parallel to have a final load of 4 ohms.

For 2ohm resistance, you need 2ohms DVC, not 4. With 4ohms DVC, you can have 8ohms, 4ohms or 1ohm.
If you want to maximize your amp, you could get 1 15" 4ohms DVC sub. It'll all depend on your trunk space.
