two of the single voice coild 8ohm 12's wired in parellel will yield a 4ohm load on your amplifier...

i personally wouldnt wire a 8ohm and a 4ohm sub/speaker together...

I was going to reply to this earlier, but the original post was over 2yrs ago.

a 4 and an 8 in parallel will give a 2.667 ohm load, the amp may handle it but we don't know what amp it is.

the main problem would be the fact that one sub will play with twice the current as the other and will have some cancellation and will not perform as well as having both subs the same impeadance.
