    yes the sub cool should not change since the other compressor is on its own circut. the coil is split into two circuts and the air will pass over the intire coil and mix after the coil. the question is what happened the the firts compressor. was it a power drop and did it also weaken the second compressor.

    When you change the compressor and flush the system you will need to check and clean the inlet filter and then install a LL dryer

    Coil

    The coil is not spit side by side its top and bottem so it will get all the air flow of = to 10tons of air.
