    So I'm going to have my cabinet wired with two speakers in parallel, two in series. It will be for a purely overdriven amp, no cleans. Do you think I should have the parallel speakers in the bottom or top of the 4x12? thanks

    I'm not sure.
    I hope you mean that you will wire each pair in parallel, then wire the pairs in series.

    Wiring schemes aren't for tone, they're for getting the correct impedance to match your amp or other cabinets. The fact you're not using a clean tone is more related to speaker type than how many ohms you end up running.
