Default Amp question

Alright so I was thinking about getting this amp MTX X Thunder 600XD Mono subwoofer amplifier 600 watts RMS x 1 at 2 ohms at Crutchfield.com to power two 12'' 4ohm 600rms subs. The thing is that it says it's only 325 x 1 at 4 ohms, and I really don't think that's gonna be enough. Can I bridge this amp to get more power? CF doesn't say.

Oh and the 2 subs only have 1 terminal in the back for connection wire, so does that mean that the "325" rms will be split in half or will both be going at that power?

Thanks guys.

I Bought something similar years ago, if you call crutchfield themselves, they can tell you yes or no.

With 2 single 4 ohm subs your going to have a 2 ohm load anyways and each sub will techinally see half of that power.
