What would sound better in your opinion. Two 10 type r's or one 10 w6. what would be better SQ and what would be high SPL. Thanks guys

The alpines would easily win in SPL and depending on the enclosure i would have to say the w6 would out perform the R in SQ.

The JL is much more geared to the SQ side. The Alpines will be louder.
Those are both decent drivers, and they'll probably perform similarly, provided they are in proper enclosures.
It all reminds me of something that Molière once said to Guy de Maupassant at a café in Vienna: "That's nice. You should write it down."

2 type r's will give u way more spl just because u have 20 in of air movement rather then just 10 but me i prefer jl i think 2 w6 will kick nice SQ and SPL

WRONG...two 10 inch subs is not 20 in of speaker.
AREA is TWO dimensional...not one.

when speking air movment 2 10s will move double the amount of air then just 1 10....  meaning higher spl yet jl has better sq then the typ r's

Dude... That is SO wrong. AREA does not equal diameter!
I'm not in any mood to explain it to you, suffice to say, you are wrong. End of story. You do the math, treating both as AREA, and you'll maybe learn yourself where you ahve made the wrong assumption.

When you double the cone area you gain 3 decibels ideally. In the real world that would translate to maybe a 1-2 decibel gain by doubling the cone area. 1-2 decibels is not a big difference in terms of percieved loudness.
There are other factors such as the efficiency of the speaker, enclosure, and power that will make a big difference as well in the overall loudness. Combined these factors will have a greater effect toward the overall SPL of your system.

Well stating that two speakers will have more displacement than one speaker is nothing new to anyone who can add one and one.
