Here are my thoughts on a single driver system vs. a dual driver system. Two drivers working together tend to smooth out the response. Working together they generally move more air, hence more bass. Working together you do not need to work the volume control anywhere near as hard as you do with a single driver system. Two drivers tend to play louder as a side benefit. Take any two driver system and unplug one driver to listen to the results, they speak for themselves (provided that each sub is in it's own enclosure of course).

I understand that two subs are better than one and I would do that if I had the money.  My question is, would one jl audio 12w6v2 have better SQ than two Infinity Perfect 12DVQs or two Eclipse 12" Aluminums?  I know that the 1 jl wouldn't be as loud, but will it sound better and still have a little bump?
That's my opinion. Take it, leave it, or correct me.

I would go with infinity because i have a Friend that has daul 4 ohm dvc that are 350 watts rms on a Sx1250.1 in a custom enclosure shared air space. Dont know the Cubic Inches. but any ways they sound awesome and at his work got a db meter to tell how loud the work area was in certain places and tryed it in his truck and hit 110 dbs on motley crue turned at 3/4 the way up

He has a Chevy Avalache

Haha.
Yea I wanted to throw in here for kicks:
Using a 13w6 mated to a JL1800D... the thing saw 800watts... 300 over RMS and it really wasn't very satisfactory.. I mean it was real clean and all.. but it really, really needed a friend.

well if you want loud go with loud, get 2 subs, but for more of an SQ system you would wnat the jl i only brouhgt that up becuse you said you wanted a SQ system. of course it isnt going to be as loud as 2 infinities but its is going to be more accurate and SOUND better.
