Default Subwoofer wiring question

I have 12 single 4 ohm subs wondering if someone can confirm this .

My final load will be 1 of the following depending on how I wire them

.34 ohm load

3 ohm load

Is this correct or can someone tell me what my options are for a final load

Equal power distribution options are:

12S - 48ohm
6S x 2P - 12ohm
4S x 3P - 5.333...ohm
3S x 4P - 3ohm
2S x 6P - 1.3333...ohm
12P - 0.3333...ohm

If you were happy with uneven power distribution, there would be a very large number of possibilities.

The amp(s) you're using will determine the best wiring solution.
