All things being equal, if a sub has 2 10" drivers in it, is it the same thing as having two seperate 10" subs?

It could have, or not have as much output as 2 separate 10's, depends on what kind of subs. And its not the same as 2 separate tens, instead of using 1 larger driver, they use 2 smaller size ones to get the benefit of a larger surface area and use a smaller box, and gain some speed.

It really depends on the design. If they are loaded together, then it's really to reduce distortion, and won't provide any real extra output, for instance.

My impression is that 1 sub with 2 10's is better than 2 separate 10's, and the reason is that if they are in one box, you *can* get deeper extension because the manufacturer probably eq'ed them such that in addition to greater output, you get lower extension due to the great area.

In the 2 separate sub case, you get greater output, but no benefit to lower extension because they are both singularly limited to what they each individually are.

I can't explain it right, but maybe you get the idea. :) For low end extension anyway.

There are many different designs for subs that use 2 drivers. In most cases the 2 driver actually does not have a magnet and is a passive radiator. In that case it acts much like a port would.
