Why? Because subwoofers excite room modes below 300 Hz, so either a single sub or two subs are going to fill your space with sound. However, which room modes get excited depends significantly on sub placement. A single sub will exhibit issues with smooth base response. Two subs allow for placement that will smooth out the base response.
I just thought you might want to consider this before making your choice, and perhaps Pete has some additional thoughts.
I hear you but I really like the flexibility of the sealed and ported subs. If Dr. Hsu made a VTF-12H, I'd be all over two of those assuming they would be near the $1000ish range.
