Get a 4 channel amp with suffiecent power, obviously power it off of the battery(you'll have to ground it). What you do is run a remote wire from back of head unit to the amp power. This just turns the amp on when you turn your head unit on. Next you'll have to run Signal wires (red and white) from the back of the unit to the amp. Next take 14ga wire and run a wire to each speaker. Running thicker gauge wire will help the power flow. Obviously look at the amp mainly on how to wire it correctly. Just a side note: You never want to up your gain to much. Mainy people do cause it louder but, long term it will blow your speakers. My friend does all my audio. Its his hobby. I just watch but its not to hard just make sure + to + and - to -.. Haha. Hopefully this has help you out. Not sure what amp you should get, try a Car audio forum.1998 K2500 Silverado 4x4, 5.7L 350, 6in" SuperLift on 33" BFG's, Audio: JVC Deck, Alpine 250 pushing 1 set of Alpine Type R 6.5" Components, Kicker 4x6" running off Deck, and a Brutus 1600 pushing 2 10" Kicker CVX in sealed box

If the amplifier is truly 1ohm stable, then your simplest option is to wire all four sub voice coils in parallel (all positive terminals connected together into one, and all negative terminals connected together into one). The only way a single sub could match or outperform a pair is with a ported box, or some other more exotic design. But since you have the two subs, there is no reason not to use both of them.
As a couple of people mentioned, get an amp for the midrange/high speakers. No matter what the manufacturer of your radio claims, it cannot possibly have more than 12-15 watts TOTAL power. Amplifiers need switching power supplies and transistors to produce real power, both of which take up space and produce heat, so the extra real estate is necessary.
Another limitation that the second amp will cure is being able to remove the low-frequency (bass) information from the midrange speakers. This will prevent them from becoming damaged and allow you to play the system loude.
Hope this helps
