i know how to clip a layer to the one below, in this case it's a layer adjustment layer, how though do i get the layer adjustment to affect the TWO layers beneath it without affecting any layers further down?

You can stack clipped layers, but if there's any masking of the clipped layers, the effect on the image lower down in the stack is diminishes ( or if the layer mask is black eliminated).

If you want the same adjustment on 2 layers creat a copy of the clipping adjustment and attach one to the adjustments to each of the layers.

When you start stacking numerous layers with adjustments get into the habit of using sets it makes it much easier to unravel things if you want to make changes.

Put a screen shot up of your image in photoshop, with the layers panel showing, then I might be able to see what your trying to do
