Question about Car Audio & Video
Check crutch fields website for sub wiring it's really straight forward depending on the desired impedance.

parallel wiring. hook all 4 positives together and run to the positive output from the amp, hook all 4 negatives together and run to the negative output from the amp.
hope this helps,

off the same amp? you have two way different sounding speakers man. you can buy 2 identical speakers from the same company and brand and series and they will play differently every time. you have 2 speakers with nothing in common so you will hear a difference and maybe interference because of the different ohm levels.

No the LOWER the resistance the MORE Output or Draw, If say it is 100 Watts into 4 Ohms, if you used a 2 ohm speaker it would draw 200 watts.(only if capable of delivering that amount of power) The LOWER the Resistance, the HIGHER the Current Draw.
WATTS = AMPS x VOLTS. (This is not strictly true with amplifiers output though, as it is an AC Current, and a "Reactive" load, it has, Inductance, Capacitance and Resistance, all in one.and is worked out via a Formula)
Now with Dual Voice Coils, Essentially, you can think of these speakers as TWO speakers in ONE enclosure. As such, They are basically TWO Speakers. Please see the website below it explains everything for you. http://www.diyaudioandvideo.com/FAQ/Wiring/
Everything is a function of Resistance and Ohms law.
Current (I) = Voltage (E) divided by Resistance(R).
Voltage = Current Multiplied by Resistance.
Resistance = Voltage divides by Current.

The wiring of the amp is not what makes it 2ohm or 4ohm, it is the resistive load of the sub, The issue is that your sub, assuming it is the L5 Kicker mentioned above has dual 2ohm voice coils, This means that if run in series will provide a load of 4ohms which will work fine but not make the most of the amp which would only be supplying 425w of it's potential 700w.
if you wire the voice coils in parallel you will end up with a load of 1ohm which will cook the amp.
here is a link to a page that explains how it all works.
