Default JL Audio subwoofer 2 or 1

Not sure if it makes any difference but...check out my drawing.
Run 2 JL Audio 8w1 at 100 watts each or run 1 JL Audio 8w3 at 200 watts?

Not sure if surface area, build quality or power has any correlation here....let me know if any of you have tested this out before. Meaning running 1 8 inch sub with twice the power or 2 subs half the power.

4 door soft top jeep wrangler. Subs most likely won't make any difference when the top is down.

Let me know if you need more info!

I assume those models are the same size.
You'd need 400W and twice the excursion in order to get the same SPL from one speaker.
With two drivers, I think you can lower the space required for one driver in half, if you use an isobaric configuration (or in a tapped horn).

Sorry, that's wrong I think.
According to Hornresp (and some posts I skimmed) you could put it in a TH of the same size required for one driver but you'd get better performance.
