How would/should I wire this: 2400 Watt Peak, mono channel amp that is 1 ohm stable, and 2 subs 700 RMS/1400 Peak each, with dual voice coils.

You can't get a 1 ohm load unless the subs are dual 4 ohm. If they are it would look like this:

If they are dual 2 ohm subs your best bet would to wire the voice coils in series and the subs in parallel for a 2 ohm load like this,

but expect around half the power output depending on the amp.

Well Im still a newbie at this so Im a little confused.

Are you talkin about this: Voice coil: 2.5" Dual 4 Ohms

Or this: Operation: 2 Ohms or 8 Ohms

yes and yes

Wire it like the first pic with both the voice coils and subs in parallel. That'll give you a 1 ohm mono load.

You can't get a 2 ohm mono load with 2 dual 4 ohm drivers howie unless use only use one voice coil. That wouldn't be a good idea for a couple of reasons one of which being that you will reduce the power handling(and output) capabilities of each sub by half.
