from the diagram, both are parallel wired correct? is there a difference of any sort? please explain. do you prefer one over the other? is there a difference in final load? I'm a bit curious to know, and a search did not help. thanks for the input

Both illustrations show parallel connections of the same three points of like polarity.  I prefer the top because there would ultimately be less wire length, but use whichever way is most convenient for you in your particular application.
Build the box so that it performs well in the worst case scenario and, in return, it will reward you at all times.

yeah, both the same.  the only advantage of the latter would be that you could change the configuration (and impedence) by re-wiring at the amp, without rewiring subs.  however, this is for the most part useless, unless you are running a competition amp that is capable of very low impedences.  most systems are designed to be wired up in only a certain configuration. 

i had an old phoenix ms-2125 that i had wired in this fashion.  driving around i ran it at 2-ohms, and for shows, i would re-wire it to 1/2 ohm and show off what a 250 watt amp can do.  i wish i had known more about relays back then- i could have just ran a switch to some relays and never touched the wires with the same effect (lol-live and learn)

thank you for replies. As of now my sub is wires as the second illustration. I was thinking of switching to the first, because thats how I see a parallel connection on different websites. So if they are the same, then a change wont be necessary.

I would like to know more about how to set up relays to do that?
