I'm not sure which one is wired closest to the amp. Does it matter?

Yes, the signal must pass through the cap before it reaches the speakers.  Use your multimeter and yo can identify which speaker lead goes straight back to the amp.  And like I wrote above, it should read 400, not 4.

So can I use just one of the RS caps, or do I need 2 in series? Which cap(s) should I use to get the closest to 60Hz for my application (ie. speakers run in series)?
Thanks.

The 3.5" are replacements for the 2.5" in the very back of my Yukon.

You sure you need these bass blockers?  Those OEM speakers wouldn't have had a full-range signal going to them.

Build the box so that it performs well in the worst case scenario and, in return, it will reward you at all times.

True.  The seem fine now, while running off of the stock stereo system.  But I plan on adding the AVIC N3 and running the rears off of the head unit.  I'll probably re-use the stock speaker wires if possible.  At that point I think I probably would need the caps.
