I still have no idea what you are trying to ask or get help with. Yes, you can run two subs off one amp, but it depends on the amp and the subs????

So what about the two LEGACY LPW1299 subs you just bought? What do they have to do with anything?

What are the subs impedance in ohms, and are they single or dual voice coil? You will want an amp that does 1200W RMS into the lowest impedance that your subs will allow in order to get the best efficiency for your dollar.

Assuming they are single voice coil you can wire them in parrallel for a 2ohm final load. Look for a mono amp that does around 1200W RMS into 2ohms. If they are dual voice coil you can wire them in parrallel for a 1ohm load so look for a mono amp that does around 1200W RMS into 1ohm if that is the case.
