    Icon32 1 BIGGER sub or 2 of SAME size?

    I'm thinking I might need more output than one IDQ10 sub. I have a small SUV and I LOVE the SQ quickness of the IDQ10 but it's only "decent" with the output.

    Question is: should I opt to get 1 bigger IDQ sub or 2 of the same IDQ10 for greater SPL output. I'd like to stick with an IDQ due to their small enclousure requirement and of course, SQ.

    Thanks for any inputs from the veterans here.

    I have 320w bridged mono from my Arc 4150XXK to a single IDQ10 DVC 2Ohms. I can free the other two remaining channels on the 4150 to power up another sub if necessary.

    Keep in mind that I've only got this up and running for two weeks but it should be broken in by now...

    IDQv2's are available from 10" to 15", in both D2 and D4.

    Anyways...going by the numbers on ID's website, you should be able to obtain close to 3db more output from a pair of 10's over a single 12". And a single 15" should be around 2db louder than a pair of 10's.
