Well to my knowledge, sequential turbo's work in the way that one turbo is always spooling from idle to give a good bottom end torque, and another turbo begins spooling in the later revs like 3500. Skyline GTR's and Supra's use this sequential setup.
I'm not to sure about the dual scroll turbo but my guess it they operate in parallel to give a big power delivery but perhaps lacking the linear power.
