need help hooking up stereo

ok, i have one 12, that im wanting to hook up to a rockford fosgate power 650 and turn the amp way down. it is a 4 channel, or 2 channel amp, with built in x-over. now the low side, which is the side i will be using, has 2 channels, and the 12 is a DVC speaker. so how would u hook it up. the power, ground, remote, and line in( RCAs) are already taken care of, i just need a run down on how someone else would hook up the four amp wires from the amp, lets call them Lr+, Lr-, Ll+, and Ll-, how would u hook them to the dual voice coil 12?

First off, your speaker is obviously Dual voice coil. What ohm dependance is it? 2,4,or 8 ohm? Is your amp 2 ohm stable? RF is pretty good about their stuff being 2 ohm stable sooooo..........
If your amp is 4 ch and your sub is DVC 4 ohm I would bridge the amp across ch 1 and 2 then the other voice coil bridged over 3 and 4. If not then just hook it regularly, wich would be + to + and - to - on you low side of the amp. (ch3+4) and leave the high side open.
