first of all, you are limited by your subwoofer's voice coil set up. What do your subs have? Are they 2 ohm dvc, 4 ohm dvc (dual voice coil), 2 ohm svc, 4ohm svc (single voice coil). We need to know those things before we can help you. As far as what they are, they are the load impedance seen by the amplifier's outputs. If the system was designed properly (by the person who put it together), you should get maximum power output into the subs from the amp when wired to the right impedance.
Also what is the model number of the amp?

looks like the amp will deliver 200 watts x 2 channels in bridged mode at 4ohms. Assuming your subs are single voice coil 4 ohms each, then you simply hook up each sub to each bridged channel for 200 watts into each sub. This is the best way to hook up your subs with that amp.

Thumbs up

More or less.....

Your amp has speaker connection blocks for a pair of front and rear speakers.

You will see a line above each set indicating where to hook up a single speaker labelled "bridged" or similar. Connect the + and - from each speaker to the corresponding connection points, one on the front set and one on the rear.
