Parallel Wireing to a single channel

I have a 2 channel Gothic 820watt amp and two 250rms Kenwoods at 4 ohms

My question is can i wire these two kenwoods to a single channel in parallel mode safely without burning my amp up?

I have my reasons

#1 my right rca input is damaged (i bought this amp used)
#2 it would technically push the full 230 rms
#3 bridge mode would be impossible to push on this 4 ohm setup due to it not being stable in 2 ohm bridge mode and if wires in a series it will underpower the amp.

if this is incorrect i understand but as far as im concerned there are no dumb questions

and my main reasoning is 4 ohms wired in parallel would technically be 2 ohms

i want to clarify this more simply:
this is not a mono block amp it is a 2 channel amp.
i want to put two subs on 1 Channel not using bridge or the second channel technically running it as a mono amp.
this amp can push 2-ohms 230rms x2 channels so im thinking why not try to push 2 subs on one channel in a parallel setup on one channel which would make it 2 ohm stable being that my subs are 4-ohms (4/2=2ohms)

You could certainly give it a try if the two subs are single voice coil 4 ohm models, but be warned the power ratings on those Gothic amps are extremely optimistic...I wouldn't count on getting the power out of it that they suggest.
