I have a 3 year old Skywatcher 12” Goto dob and my shroud only has 3 pvc struts sewn in at 120 degrees apart ie: they are positioned centrally between each of the 3 main truss Rods
When I bought the shroud 18 months ago , I found when the dob is fully extended that they don’t quite fit between the edges of the OTA tube , I had to pull them out and trim them shorter by 3 to 4mm

I can’t see how 4 struts would work ??
Check with your supplier !!
Unless they changed the design of the dob in the past couple of years ?
