Yes, $4999.00 is pricey to be sure. I have built every subwoofer and speaker that I have owned, so I can't imagine spending that much on a sub. $999.00 for two sounds better.
As far as matching sealed with sealed and vented with vented I am a firm believer. A vented speaker gets a large portion of its low freq. extentsion from the vent - the out of phase back wave of the driver. To smoothly integrate subs and mains have to overlap at the crossover point. This is where cancellation or doubling can happen. It can be minimized, but why take the chance?
I have a pair of transmission line main speakers that have an in room F3 ~28Hz. With my 12" transmission line sub it all sounds awesome. Not the case with my sealed sub.
