Default Single amp, dual voice coil

My new passive speaker just arrived. Maybe I bought the wrong one? I need some advice.

I have an Alpine MRD-M605 Mono Power Amplifier. Output is 1x400W RMS into 4 Ohms. Output wiring is one pair of wires, positive and negative.

So I figured that I needed a 400W bass speaker. Not knowing exactly what "dual coil" meant, I bought a BT8024DCV.

The speaker has 4 terminals for the wiring connection. Apparently this is for a stereo bass input.

My question is, can I install jumpers on across the terminals and wire it to my amp? Or do I need to return this and buy a different unit?
