Anyone know hhow to wire a Stereo/Mono cab?

Im trying to figure out how to wire this cab up without frying my amp.

My cab is a 4x12 with a stereo/mono switch and its driving me nuts.

There are 4 wires inside 1 set for stereo and one set for mono.

Should I be using all 4 wires, 2 wires or mix match?

We started out using the + and - from the mono side following the diagram exactly, leaving the stereo wires unhooked. Switched to 16 ohm on the amp and nothing.

My drummer is a jack of all trades and rigged it up. I have a real cheap ohm meter and its reading 10...??!!??

I want to make sure I have this right, please help.
