Assuming it doesn't sound rubbish, it will probably cause the amp to run hot.

Do you know the impedance of both subs and that which your amp is capable of?

Bear in mind that its not a case of wiring the second sub to the second channel, you don't want stereo in bass, they should work completely together and not possibly cancel each other out if they're not on the same channel.

they will cancel each other out anyway, you need to know a LOT about setup to have a chance of mixing sub sizes successfully.
If you want 2 subs, get 2 exactly the same and an amp that can power both, either bridged or a mono amp.

Upgrade the Engine to chassis. Battery (-) to chassis and alternator + to batter (+) with some 4 or 2 gauge wiring. You will also need 6 ring connectors. And if your still getting problems upgrade your battery upfront to the biggest one you can. A diesel one should be fine
