JL Audio subwoofer 2 or 1
1 Attachment(s)
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?:confused:

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.
