what subs do you have - are they single or dual voice coil/what ohm load each/is your amp a 2 channel amp 4 ohm mono stable, I'm assuming....need more info is what I'm getting at....

wire the voice coils in parallel, this will give 4 ohms.

Parallel means positive to positive, and neg to neg.  then attach the amp to pos and neg.

Aahhh, 4 speakers, I missed that part.  

You wire that pair the same, then series both pairs for 8 ohm total load.
