Here is my none technical take. If you want to save space by all means the DO is great. At higher volumes its great but being truthful and I was told this by others 2 sealed boxes will outperform a DO and I have to admit it to a point. The other image that I posted is of 2 MartyCubes, I wrapped them in vinyl and used some trim to make it look like one box. I have a nu 6000 on those and an A14K on the DO. I am not trying to imply the sealed out performs the DO its just the sealed is just a tad more efficient. Now if I had another 3000.00 I would definitely get 2 more HST18's and another A14k and build another DO. The current is 39" x 21.5" x 21.5" so I figure with the 2 drvrs and the bracing approx. 8cu.ft. Standing on end the footprint is reasonable that is why I like it but if you have the space go big.
