Well you can wire them either in series for 16 ohms or in paralell for 4 ohms......

Paralell would mean that both speakers were connected the same way to the speaker posts.....

Series would mean that the hot of one speaker would connect to the Hot speaker post and the negitive of the other speaker would connect to the negitive speaker post and the 2 wires left over would be connected together......

I can draw you a picture if you don"t understand or a simple google search will find you a better explanation....
