    Two chambers make the box more rigid, you dont have to worry about flex as much.

    I would go two for the extra solidness of the box

    Well, pros of 2 chambers is that if one sub blows, the increased stress and much larger box won't blow the other sub.

    The cons is that they're a bit harder to build and require a little more space / material.

    If its purely a matter of adding a divider, do it. The structural integrity of the box you will gain is well worth it.

    I was looking at some testing recently comparing common chamber vs seperate and the common chamber was a good bit louder.
