Yes. You need the X-Mount pods and the MC-11adaptors.

Rather then add a 2nd 2 chnl, I would replace the existing with a single amp to properly drive which ever speakers you go with.

Two 4 ohm speakers can never be a 4 ohm load to amp. Only 2 or 8 ohm. Since the JL amp cant take a 2 ohm bridged load, then you cna only bridge an 8 ohm load. At that point, the speakers net wattage...
