That's a good plan, and a LOT of power for the subs.
I like the 2 amp setup for a variety of reasons. In addition to the things I mentioned above, 2 amps means 2 separate power supplies instead of a single power supply trying to keep up with the demands of the entire system, and 2 heat sinks which means you can dissipate twice as much heat (very important in a marine system).
