I personally am going to try one of everything. Mainly because I do not know that there is one more perfect than the other (many variances including type of sub, money, etc.) and second, I want to learn. I agree they are both great systems and each has it's own characteristics. Look forward to seeing your build!
If you can cut, drill, saw, hit things and swear a lot, you're well on the way to building a working model sub.
