If I power a display with one long row of "D" (x8)batteries, but want to make two rows instead, how should I rewire? Answered

Basically I want two stacks of ("D" x 4) instead of one long row, uncertain of where and how I should rewire the pos & neg wires.  This would help with a compact design, unfortunately I need to keep these type batteries to make this design work.

 make your two stacks of cells. then connect the positive end of one set connect to the negative end of the other. finally connect display power to the other two non-connected ends (of the battery cells)

it all depends on how many volts you want out

Thank u so much, but I'm using "D" batteries...the diagram reflects "9" volt.  Though I appreciate the concept...
