Sounds like a 2-channel amplifier. I would series the voice coils into one 8 ohm load. The positive from one voice coil is wire to the negative from the other. Your positive and negative connections that remain then hook up to the bridged amplifier.
I wouldn't run them in stereo as separate channels because you don't want any chance of sending a different signal to the coils.
Can't run the voice coils in parallel for a two ohm load because most 2-channel amplifiers aren't stable bridged into two ohms.

Wow, missed that there were two subs. Ed is right. Wire both subs as I stated and then wire them in parallel from there.
