Help With Subs/Amp

I am VERY new to this and was wondering if anyone could give me some help, ok I'm on a limited budget to buy subs and an amp and I have already purchased two Kicker Comp 12's http://www.circuitcity.com/ssm/Kicke...oductDetail.do

I wanted to purchase an amp at the same time but I didn't have enough money, I will soon though and was wondering if this amp (Bazooka 500-Watt Monoblock) would be sufficient to hook up these two subs to http://www.circuitcity.com/ssm/Bazoo...oductDetail.do

I really need some info on this subject, thanks in advance for the help

also, I was wondering if someone could help me because the subs are 4 ohm and when I hook them up will it be 2ohm or 4ohm I have no idea and is there different ways to hook them up that might be better?

One piece of advise,(you'll learn this over time) do your research when shopping for things like car audio. There are tons and tons of options. Make sure you know what you want and why. Don't just go out and buy the first thing you see as soon as you get a little money in your pocket. I mean if you are having to save up your hard earned money to be able to purchase those subs or amp, be sure you know everything about what you are buying(don't be so compulsive). If you don't know what ohms refer to you shouldn't have any subs or amps at the time. Not lecturing hear but take it from my experience it'll save you tons of time, money, and you'll be a lot happier with the outcome of your system if you just do some reading before you go on a shopping spree.
