All calcualators aside, a simple rule of thumb I use when doing a double batch sparge, is to simply measure the wort needed to make your pre-boil volume after the first batch sparge, simply use that amount as your final sparge and you will be very close to your pre-boil volume that you wanted. Simply put, your final sparge is the one that will put you where you need to be.

ps: the above works well as a failsafe check if something went wrong.
