sounds like its got dual voice coils, so you need to either wire the VC's in series (+ to - and + to -) then off of one VC to the amp. this will give you a 4 ohm load if its a dual 2 ohm sub or 8 ohm load if its a dual 4 ohm sub

or wire then in parallel (- to - and + to +) then off of one VC to the amp. this will give you a 1 ohm load if its dual 2ohm or 2 ohm load if its dual 4ohm.

depends on your amp.

oh and about that terminal box, i'd take it back and just drill you a hole in the box the size of your wire, use silicon sealant if your concerned about air leaking out. thoes boxes aren't needed and can cause problems.

the reason the sub has 2 neg. and 2 pos. is so you can wire the sub to 2ohms 4ohms and 8ohms heres a link that might help also what kind of amp do you have
