Does the "system input" field adjust for number of drivers? ie: If I put in 2 drivers and have a 500W total amp, should I put in 250 for the value in the system input, or 500?

I am comparing 1 15" Dayton vs 2 12" Dayton in a 5cu ported box. When I put 500W in the system input, the 2 12's blow away the 1 15 across the board, especially in the low end. I might be doing something wrong however as the velocity seems higher than suggested.

Red = 15" @ 500W
Blue = 15" @ 250W (7.5cu based on another users build)
Green = 2x 12" @ 500W total

Two 12's have a surface area of about 74.88 cu inches, vis one 15 with 46.8:huh: So it should blow it away should it not?

I've been looking at the Bash 300/500 as those seem popular and easy to use. I'm trying to build a $500 sub.

When modeling on winISD with multiple subs, does the model show the subs sharing the same cabin? or split into sections ?

if two dvc subs where wired to a final impedance of 4, hooked up to a amp that outputs 500watts at 4ohm

are each sub getting 500watts or 250watts?

another question I have had was
when tuning a box say to 20hz, can you have your hpf on your amp say 16hz
or box tuned to 35hz and amp at 20hz?
would there be any ill effects

I have only seen people set their amps to their box tuning freq on these forums so was wondering.
