Multiple subwoofer wiring

So yeah, easy question, I'm pretty sure I'm right, but left alone with my thoughts, I can think myself out of the right answer for some reason.
So I have 4 dual 1 ohm subs and 2 Sundown Salt 4 amplifiers. I'm going to run 2 subs each amp. If I wire the subs in the fashion as seen in the picture, I'll get a final load of 1 ohm correct? I'm just looking for validation that I've been correct or proof that I am, in fact, a dumb *ss. Thanks in advance

Yeah, I got the info off 12 volt, it was just a little confusing because of it only being for a single input, so I looked at just 1 1ohm dvc wired to 2 ohm. That's where I got my drawing.
So pretty much positive and negative wired together from each coil, and then one positive and negative from each coil into the amp?

Series parallel.

Wire each sub to 2 ohms. Then wire each pair to one ohm. Or if you strap them, wire all 4 subs to .5 ohm and then series wire all of them to get 2 ohms.
Yeah, I guess the simplest way to put my question was is that picture going to yield me 2 ohms each sub and wiring each sub into it's own positive and negative slots into the amp, would the amp then see 1 ohm. I was just going to have 4 separate speaker terminals on the box
