Putting them in series I'm guessing would increase the speed through the 1st cannister as its being sucked in and sucked out but the actual speed coming out the output outlet would be governed by size of pipe and max rpm of 2nd pump. It would defiantly be faster then a single pump but not sure by how much.
If you have already ordered them the best way to find out would be booking them up and seeing what happens, just watch the heat from the pumps and make sure there primed.
I couldn't say with any authority on the benefits of the media placement other then easier maintenance
