Can't vouch for the quality of that kit, but it's got everything you need if the wire is long enough.

Monoprice has a nice kit for <$20 that may be a better choice.

No, they should be 8-ohm nominal (each) if you intend to attach them in parallel, which will present a 4-ohm load. If you have two pairs of 4-ohm nominal speakers, you'd wire those in series to...
