Default Ok to wire like this?

If so, what final nominal load would i get if they are both Dual 2 Ohm subs. Forgive my horrible paint skills.

from what this looks like you are trying to wire the subs up with the coils on the subs in parallel and then wire them up in series to the amp if this is what you are trying to do the with (2) dual 2 ohm subs you will end up with 2 ohms.

Yeah. amp to subs, two in correct parallel, two opposite. Trying to keep the Imp at something reasonable that an amp can handle. I know .5 is an option, but i would be more comfortable a 2 even if i get less power.

The way you have it would be 0.5ohms.

Your illustration is parallel wiring, you just have the one driver out of phase with the other.

As suggested, look at some wiring guides, they way you have it drawn is wrong.
