You might double check this but I think your amp's subwoofer channel is 300 watts RMS X 1 @ 2 ohm. You can connect two Kicker Comp 10C124 subs to it. Those are 12", 4 ohm, single voice coil subs, 150 watts RMS each. Wire them in parallel, positive to positive and negative to negative to the subwoofer channel of that amp. That will give you a 2 ohm load. Those Kicker Comp subs are rated at 150 watts RMS each but when you wire them together for one channel the two 150 watt subs fundamentally become one 300 watt sub.

It's a smaller 5 channel amplifier that should not be pushed to the limit,you blow one channel and the Amplifier is junk,most 5 channel amp's are set up to run a single Sub woofer if it tell's you a Continuous RMSw's a match from Amp to Sub is what your looking for at what ever ohm's load the amplifier can handle,it should say but id stay with a 4 ohm sub to be safe.600 total watt's is a peak power rating and should seldom be reached. like i said a small 5 channel but not junk.

It sounds like you have the Kicker 12CX600.5, 40 watts RMS X 4 @ 4ohm plus 300 watts RMS X 1 @ 1ohm. You can connect two 4 ohm subs in parallel to it that are 150 watts RMS each. You can also connect one 300 watt 4 ohm dual voice coil sub to it as well like the Kicker 40CWD124. It can be wired for two ohm. Either one sub or two subs will work, the key is to have 300 watts RMS at 2 ohm. Trust me, the amp can't tell if two subs or one sub is connected to it's subwoofer channel. Two 150 watt subs or one 300 watt sub is the same difference.
