Try this filter designer to get coefficients to use in biquad~ objects:

Here's some code too, which might be more clear:

For 4-pole you'll need to use more than one biquad, I think.
I'm not sure how, but you can split it over multiple biquads.

Start with 2-pole for a single biquad, to make things easy.
