What is a tetrad split complementary color scheme?

Tetrad Split Complementary

Four colors. The set is made of two pairs; each pair is opposite each other, as in a complementary color scheme. The two pairs are just one color apart on the color wheel. To be simplistic, you are using two complementary color schemes that are just one color apart at each end and crossed in the middle as you would an "x."
