Why?  Other than cost (the NL connectors are cheaper) there is no advantage to changing from the EP connectors.  Soldering an EP requires more heat capacity than an XLR but it's got more physical material and area to heat.  Meyer used EP because those were the bullet-proof connector available at the time and the EP connector is still in use in mission-critical touring systems.

If you don't know the difference in cables I submit you purchased a product above your pay grade.  Seriously, this isn't snark...
im asking what kind of cable to use with wiring a 4 pin connector. like brand, gauge , etc.

What amplifier are you using?  Does it have NL4's?  Have you looked at the manual on the processors?

The XLR's are the input of the amplifier, the binding posts are the output.  You just need to get an EP-4 cable and connect one end to the binding posts.

Are you going to use 1 amp per sub?  Channel 1 to one driver, channel 2 to the other?  That would be enough power for these.  If you plan on putting 1 sub per channel that will be underpowering them significantly.

How about a...4 conductor cable?  Brand is irrelevant, gauge is up to you but some 12/4 SJ would be my go-to since you have a 4-pin connector.

If wielding a soldering iron is not within your skill set, any pro audio cable manufacturer is capable of making an EP4 speaker cable - just pick up the phone.

What is the rest of your system and have you put together the parts and pieces of a sound system before?
