Welcome to the Bazooka Forum Gus. Yes, the wires are for your left and right channels of the factory woofer. To connect them in parallel, you will match the positive of the left channel with the positive of the right channel, and the negative of the left channel with the negative of the right channel. Yes, you can measure across the terminals to find the nominal impedance of the driver. Just be sure to measure between the terminals individually, or on the same side. Don't be surprised if the impedance does not directly read 2 or 4 ohm. Nominal impedance for a 4 ohm driver is 3.6 ohms. If you have anymore questions, please post back.
