 Help wiring 10, yes TEN, DVC 4ohm subs

Hey guys, newbie here. Graduate of IIT audio in Orlando. M.E.C.P certified. I feel stupid for needing help with this but im about to throw something at my dog if i dont get this right. i guess with so many subs, its getting to me. I am installing TEN 12" RE audio SXX subs in a Nissan Titan.Im gonna break it down like this... Gonna have 2 banks of subs, 5 on each bank... each bank will be wired by connecting the two voice coils of each driver in series (+to-) and the drivers themselves in paralell (+to+). Which in turn will result in 1.6ohm on each bank. Now, when i connect the 2 banks together at the amplifier, is my impedance going to go in half to 0.65ohm? or will it double to 3.2? RE audio told me wiring them like that it will make the iimpedance double, which is what i want, but i just cant see it happening!!! any help would be apprecieated guys. thanks.

BTW, the subs are DVC 4ohm

You're back to a question of series or parallel.  In parallel you'll be at 0.8, parallel will be 3.2:

Parallel:
