"...output current capability of 1 A per driver. For even higher current applications, it is possible to physically stack two devices on top of each other to get almost 2 A of drive current."

Each motor pulls 1.6A when stalled out. The L293D pumps out <1A per channel. You should look into the uglier, harder to work with L298N (link is out of stock but it's for information purposes only in this case).
