1 PV->2 Duos->4 batteries: Would it work?

Hi, would this work?

1 PV array with feed cable going to a junction box where 2 Bluesolar Duos connect. The first duo goes to 2 lead acid batteries, the 2nd Duo goes to 2 Lifepo4 batteries. I could add diodes in the junction box if required.

PV panels cannot be shared by multiple controllers. You need 1 array per controller.

What would work is

PV into controller into battery bank and then charge second bank from first using Orion DC:DC charger.

Not clear why you want duo.
