Single vs dual 10 IN sub?

I'm having a sub and amp installed In my truck Saturday and am wondering if I would notice the difference between a single or dual 10IN setup. I had a single 10 before and was happy with it but I've always thought bigger is better. Thanks for any advice in advance.

i dont think you will notice much of a difference, and you can get by with a smaller amp. i think 1 well powered sub will perform better than 2 subs that are under powered because of an amp that is too small because you couldnt afford a bigger amp. also it is going to be tough to get a box in a truck that has enough square footage for 2 subs. in high school my car with one 12" sub sounded better than my buddies with two 15" subs because i think his was under powered. i had a 250w amp and he had a 400w amp.

A single ported shallow 12" works great in the 04-07 Super Duty.

If you can afford the space dual is the way to go. I run a pair of Alpine type X ported with 1000w ea. The enclosure design is one of the biggest factors. My home audio setup uses a pair of M&K MX350 which each have two 12" drivers on a push pull system with just 350w ea but they will out do most higher powered systems I have heard. Granted many cheeper systems use peak power rather than RMS.

If you have the correct box and power to push 2 woofer, go with 2
1 10 inch woofer moves 10 inches of cone air ,2 is 20 inches of cone air space
last week i help a friend replace one 12 and installed 2 10 inch woofer sounds better and louder with the same amplifier
