 High resistance?

Hi I have an amp rated at 600w Rms at 4 ohms that's a monoblock and I want to power two 200w rms 12" speakers with it. Could I wire them in series to one of the outputs to get less wattage at 8 ohms to not blow them, or should I just wire each to one input, bringing it down to 2 ohms, which would push 1100w rms and keep the gain down to avoid overpowering them?

8 is certainly an option. I would expect 300-400w at that impedance.
You could do 1100, but if you were tempted to push them at some point and it wouldn't take much to cause them some serious problems with that much power on tap.
