It's not yaourt downloading the packages, it's makepkg.

Add this to makepkg.conf

DLAGENTS=('ftp::/usr/bin/aria2c %u -o %o'
          'http::/usr/bin/aria2c %u -o %o'
          'https::/usr/bin/aria2c %u -o %o'
          'rsync::/usr/bin/rsync -z %u %o'
          'scp::/usr/bin/scp -C %u %o')

and comment (#) the wget DLAGENTS section.

I don't think aria2 will speed up downloads for AUR packages much since the PKGBUILDS only list only 1 source for each file that needs to be downloaded.

It will speed up, just split download over multiple connections.
Example:

http::/usr/bin/aria2c -s8 %u -o %o
