Since the Submersive has 2 drivers, how does this change the placement?  For example I would have placed a single driver sub in the corner of my room, but with the submersive would it still work since one driver would be facing the wall?

I have mine in the corner with one driver facing the wall and the other facing the listening position.  Worked better in my LR than having the drivers fire to each of the sidewalls.  Just experiment and see what works best but no worries about your intended arrangment.

I have mine in the back corner of my room.  One driver fires into the wall and the others fires into the room.  I have had no issues with this setup at all.

Good advice guys.

What would be the optimal driver placement and location for dual submersives? Assuming placing them in a sealed rectangular room of 14" x 20" x 10"?

Humyt, That really depends.  If you place them next to each other you get the full +6db of two subs in close proximity of each other.  But that may not yield the best overall frequency response.  You may find that putting them in seperate parts of the room will give you a better overall response but you may not get the full +6db that people normally quote when subs are doubled.  In a room of that size I would go for what ever gives you the best overall response. Even if that means they are separate.  I don't think in a room that size you will be missing too much output with dual SubMersives

Thanks for the advice Mike.

Based on this article from Audioholics, am I right to assume the dual sub position of Fig.28a presents the most optimal FR?

That's the thing, it can be.  Or it may not .  For ex, in my case Mark wanted to place the sub in the front of the room.  He has a suspicion that it would sound good there. But it was interfering with my tube TV so we moved it to the back of the room. Some people have found that they get the best response if the subs are in opposite corners of the room.  Do you have any major placement limitations?  For ex, "There is no way I can place it(them) in spot X?  If you can post a diagram or some pictures of your room, we can work on some placement ideas with you.

Sorry about the amateurish sketch, I hope you can visualize it. One of the possible placement is shown with the two orange boxes representing the dual Submersives, with their drivers firing front and back.

Nothing amateur about that drawing.  I should show you one of my room drawings.OK.  So with that placement they would be semetrical but you would get very little boundary reinforcement  I am assuming your measurements are in millimeters.That translates to 21fLx19.5f wide.  I will also assume an 8f ceiling.
That is 3276cf.  Even without corner placement I am going to guess that two submersives in that room will be quite potent. 

The only other places I would look to see if the fit is up front on either side of your screen.  You might have a lot of experimenting to do.  Or you might get lucky with your first placement idea.  I mean You might want to think about one up front and one against the wall as well.  You best bet is just to resign yourself to the fact that this may take a bit of work and experiment if you can.
I might try this order:
First place them the way you have it marked.
Then if they fit, place them both up front.
If they don't both fit then take the one on the right wall and place that in the corner and keep the one on the left wall where it is.
If the one on the left can go in the front corner then also try it there and keep the other one where it is.
