Have you *read* the answers above?

That applies to standard drivers, but a "4 ohm" Piezo is NOT 4 ohm.

Post the specific Piezo datasheet or specs link for further discussion.

I would just wire them in parallel.
But I would be careful using such a powerful amp with lesser speakers.
Is it ok in wiring both 4ohm woofer and 4ohm tweeter in parallel ? chance for any total impedence issues ? bcoz my amp's impedence is also 4ohms.

The simple answer is yes, it is OK to wire them in parallel provided you are using a piezo tweeter. The total impedance will be 4 ohm.

However, a simple parallel arrangement it is not optimum. I suggest you read the information that has already been supplied, in particular:
