In series to be safe for your amp.

In parallel the load is 1 Ohm,your amp may or may not like it.

Two voice coils of 2 ohms in series will result in a total of 4 ohms.
Both in parallel will give a total of 1 ohm and not 1/2 ohm.
If your amp is capable of driving 1 ohm speakers feel free to connect them parallel to a mono amp.
However I would Recommending to use a two channel amplifier with seperate volume controls because of the different mechanical parameters (in particular diameter and possibly different Xmax and Pmax) of the chassis (10" and 12") besides other more or less important parameters.

If there are 2 ohm DVC you might want to consider running the two coils on each woofer in series and then paralleling the two woofers to get back to 2 ohms. Even if your amp is stable a 1 ohm, 2 ohms will run it cooler and probably last longer.

Question: Why do you want to use two different woofers? They are never going to sound the same if you are asking them to cover the same frequencies so this is not, IMHO, a good idea.
