6 Volt Battery Amp hrs

Hi all, I think I found my answer but just want to confirm. Last year I switched from my 2 12V deep cycles to 2 6Volt's. I gotDuracell Ultra 6V Golf Cart Battery.
It has a 208AH capacity for each battery. When wired up is 208AH my total capacity or do I have 416AH? I "think with the 2 6volts I get 12V but the AH stays at 208?
That You!
Randy

That's my understanding, if they're wired in series the amp hours stays the same.

Parallel wiring would keep them at 6 volts but double the amp hour rating.

Great, thanks for the reply. I'm getting ready to install a Victron battery monitor and I know I'll need to input the Amp hours of my battery bank.

You will need to go to four 6 volts to double your ah and maintain 12 volts.

Excellent, thats how I was reading it as well, just wanted to confirm as this set 6V set up is a bit new for me and I'm starting to get a bit deeper into it with mod's and upgrades.
