I believe the diagram is different if both drivers are facing forward.

Jay posted a comprehensive set of wiring diagrams for the different possibilities of driver configuration. You can find those here https://www.audiocircle.com/index.php?topic=149708.msg1600884#msg1600884

The reason both sets of terminals are used is because one set is for the driver coil and the other set is for the servo control coil. You have to use both, they have to be properly connected together, and connected to the correct pair of wires on the amp.

If you are using a HX800 amp the color codes are different for each channel, so get them wired correctly.  If not one half the sub is reversed polarity and cancels the output from the other side.  Took me a while to figure that out.

I have another noob question. I'm finding it difficult to locate 1" MDF in my area (northern NJ). Would it be feasible to glue two 1/2" sheets together for the main baffle? Or should I look for 1" plywood or some other material?

Gluing up sheets of MDF is not a problem.

A little late  to this but,    I also  posted  the  wiring color codes for the different amps in  that thread as well

There's schematics as well as  written  step by step    instructions  to wire these things up in different configs.. just pck the  right   setup  for your   build
