Re: 2 pos and neg terminals ?
To allow two speakers to be connected in parallel. However, this should only be accomplished by a technician as it can easily overload an amplifier. When two 8 ohm speakers are connected this way, they are seen as a 4 ohm speaker by the amp and if the amp is not rated for that impedence, then it will overload it.

I am going to assume the 2 speakers in the sub are each 4 ohm loads, and are wired together in parallel, creating a 2 ohm load. And your amp pushes 800W at a 2 ohm load. And actually goes down to 1 ohm/1100W. Anyway...
Seems you want to lessen the wattage output of the amp by making a 4 ohm load. To do that, you need to wire the both 2 ohm speakers in SERIES. In general wiring principles, to wire in SERIES, take the POS terminal from the amp and wire to the POS terminal of first speaker. Take the NEG terminal from the amp and wire to the 2nd speakers' NEG terminal. Then place a "jumper" piece of speaker wire to connect 1st speakers' NEG terminal to 2nd speakers' POS terminal. Now you have a 4 ohm load, and will be pushing 450W from your amp.
red is you positive black is you negitive and yellow is your acc and blue is your remote wire and two purple and the two grey two green and two white are your speaker wire and the example solid purple is pos purple with stripe is your neg just call 360 915 9407 if you need help ask for robin
THE AMPLIFIER NEEDS A 1 OHM LOAD AND YOU HAVE THE RIGHT SPEAKER TO PROVIDE THIS LOAD. THE AMPLIFIERS TERMINAL STRIP PROVIDES YOU WITH 2 POSITIVES AND 2 NEGATIVES, BUT THEY ARE ONLY FOR CONVENIENCE WHEN WIRING 2 DRIVERS. ACTUALLY THE 2 POSITIVES ARE THE SAME CONNECTION INTERNALLY ON THE BOARD, AS WELL AS THE 2 NEGATIVES. THAT BEING SAID, THE SIMPLEST WAY TO CONNECT YOUR SPEAKER IS TO PARALLEL THE VOICECOILS IN THE BOX BY CONNECTING THE 2 POS. TOGETHER AND THE 2 NEG. TOGETHER THEN RUN THAT POS. AND NEG. OUT OF THE BOX AND SIMPLY CHOOSE EITHER OF THE 2 POS AND NEG. OF YOUR CHOICE AT THE AMP. IF YOU EVER HAVE TO ADD A SUB, THEN YOU WILL HAVE 2 MORE TERMINAL LEFT OVER ON THE AMP. TO CONNECT IT TO AT THAT TIME. BY ALL MEANS, IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO RUN EACH COIL SEPARATELY OUT OF THE BOX AND CONNECT THEM TO ALL 4 TERMINALS, THEN THIS IS FINE TOO, AS EITHER WAY, THERE WILL BE NO DIFFERENCE WHATSOEVER. LET ME KNOW IF I CAN BE OF FURTHER ASSISTANCE....V
Ok, without actually seeing the back of it, I can't say where your connections go. But, I can tell you that there will be a positive and a negative for both L and R sides And 2 wires that go to your volume control on your amp.(1 for each side) you will be able to combine the 2 wires that go to your amp and it will still control both the right and left on your speaker.
Different manufacturers use different wiring. Usually the striped is positive.
An easy test is to take a battery (from a cordless drill) or a 9V, and touch the neg + pos to the correct terminal of the battery.
If the speaker pops OUT, it is wired correctly, if the speaker pops IN, reverse the wires.

All depends on your amp. Is it 1 ohm stable or not? Parralell: positive (pos) on voice coil 1 (vc1) to Pos on vc2 and negative (neg) on vc1 to neg on vc2. Then speaker wire from amp to one vc only = 1ohm load. Series: Pos from amp to Pos on vc1. Neg of vc1 to Pos of vc2. Neg of vc2 to amp = 4 ohm load.
pink = (+) pos. for left front speaker violet = (-) neg for left front speaker light green = (+) pos. for right front speaker blue = (-) neg for right front speaker blue/yellow = (+) pos at all times (power) grey = (+) pos. only in the accessory or run position brown = (-) neg gound red = (+) pos. right rear speaker black = (+) pos. left rear speaker white = (-) neg right rear speaker yellow = (-) neg left rear speaker
