    I'm looking for sound quality with my system and was wondering if there are any advantages of 2 10's vs 1 10 other than being louder. If the only purpose of using 2 10's is looks and volume then I dont need to buy two so I would some opinions.

    the difference in 2 10s vs 1 10 is basically output

    if you just want a little bit of bass and dont need it to be hair moving loud check out something like an Image Dynamics IDQ 10. They dont cost a ton and have excellent acuracy and can still get decently loud

    It all depends on the speaker being used. There are 10" out there that can have as much output as a 15". It just depends on the speaker in question. There are also 10" out there that can have as much output as 4 10" of a lesser xmax. Without going into too much detail let me just say this. Pretty much the only reason you would need 2 drivers over one is for A: stereo response, which isnt an issue with bass below 100hz. B: output. So if you dont need really loud bass, then probably 1 10" speaker will be good enough for you.
