If I wire duel DVC 4ohm subs in parallel, would it come out to 1ohm?

I was using a formula from Sparky3489's page and using 4 for each sub 4 times ( 4 coils ).

z=1/(1/sub1+1/sub2+1/sub3+1/sub4)

or

z=1(1/4 + 1/4 + 1/4 + 1/4 )

Am I getting this right? ( first time sub install... )

4(ohms) divided by 4(coils) =1 ohm
The answer is yes indeed. Final Ohm equates to 1.

i surely wouldn't want subs with dueling voice coils. that must be hell to tune and sound right.
