Shelby Kicker Door Sub Wiring question

I'm planning to install the Shelby Kicker door speakers and subs into my '13 Premium (standard Shaker system) this weekend. Regarding the subs, I've been reading that since you only use two of the four leads that are attached to the OEM subs, which evidently have two voice coils, that you loose some power there. The other two leads are left unused.

Has anyone tried connecting the two pairs in parallel, i.e. connect both (+) leads to one terminal and both (-) leads to the other on the Kicker subs?. I've no idea whether both leads carry the same signals or different signals. I can't think that it would cause a short circuit as long as you don't connect negative to positive.

I installed in my 2014. Huge drop in volume. Bass is not as boomy but the loss of volume is an unwelcome trade off. U will fry the amps if u try to bridge or parallel. My are for sale cheap if someone wants.
