Google the specs on your amp to see if it can run 2 Ohms.

But that would be 16 ohms I was thinking 2 8 ohm in parallel = 4 ohms connected to 4 ohm tap but would that be to Mitch for my amp to handle or would in not be worth it I was thinking double the speaker double the amount of air displaced ??? Am I wrong

That is an interesting driver, pretty low fs for how small it is. Can you get us the link to the driver? The basket looks like a vifa/peerless but it is not.

The specs show 4 ohms, if you want to get more spl with them then 2 in series for an 8 ohm amplifier. You will lose the nice point source nature of these drivers as full range speakers if you have more than one pointing forward towards listener.
