The way he said he hooked it up would be acceptable also!
You described a parallel connection, he described a series connection.
It's like connecting 2 batteries together.
Say you have 2 Car
batteries (12v) and you connect them in parallel, you would still have 12 volts, just more amperage. If you connect the same 2 batteries in series, you would have 24 volts without an increase in amperage.
Both types of connections are acceptable methods of wiring, it just depends on your desired result.
In his case, if he wasn't sure if the amp could handle a 1 ohm load, the the safe bet would to be wiring in series.
