2 10w6's will have more surface area so it'll have higher spl. are you planning on installing this in a stealth box?

just a heads up, i just picked up a tc sounds tc-9 based on a suggestion of a well respected member of the diymobileaudio.com forums. I had a 12w7 but there were just too many issues with installing it and having it fit stealth with my new design. He said that the tc-9 was the best sq sub that he has ever heard. the others will be 'louder' but this one should be hard to beet sq-wise. may be worth looking into:

you can give those two w6's the same amount of power that you'd give the w7. you can actually give any speaker a lot more then the recommended rms spec as long as it's a clean signal. the distortion will kill the speaker long before the wattage will

I vote for the 2 10W6 subs. the W6 series has a much wider REAL frequency response. The W7 series is best for very low end bass (between 20-50Hz). The W6 series is perfect for filling the gap between low end (say 30 Hz-250Hz) to the midrange speakers.

Having 2 Jlw6 subs will allow you to have fuller bass because you can move more air while playing at a lower volume (cleaner bass IMO) plus it just looks cool.

My reccomendation would be to get a dual 10" sub box from here:
http://www.subthump.com/vette.htm

While the subthump box only offers .49 CuFt of airspace per sub, using polyfill in the box will provide the acoustic illusion of a larger box. JL website reccomends .625 CuFt of space per sub and with polyfill or fiberfill you can simulate somthing along those lines.

I wouldn't cross it over that high. 80hz is the highest i'd ever consider low passing a sub at. anything higher is going to ruin your soundstage.

scott's right about the xover frequency, IMO the W6 has a flatter response curve over it's range wheras the W7 has a significantly higher response in the lower frequencies of it's range.

depends on what kind of music you'll be playing mostly.
