Chaining both together via FireWire sounds like the beat option according to Kubrak.
I assume, you have the legacy UFX Units - each with Firewire 400 and USB2 Port?
I think you will get into bandwidth problems, if you chain both UFX'es via one Firewire400 Bus into one port on the Mac.
From your manual on page 25:
In real-world an operation of more than one Fireface UFX makes no sense and is therefore not actively supported by RME. Each further unit would lead to problems on the USB and FireWire bus, caused by the high number of channels. The UFX has been developed as monitor control- ler and – not extendable – digital mixer. It makes more sense to connect external converters to the ADAT I/Os of the UFX, adding up to 16 channels of analog record and analog playback.
I would make sure they are connected seperate into their own USB/FW Busses on your Mac.
Even if it is not officially supported by RME - As I wrote in my last post: One (FF800) was connected via FW400 and the other (FF802) via USB2 in my case - worked without Problems as an aggregated Device... (But i never had Ultra-high-Bandwidth Situations, like 192kHz and all Channels from both Units used at the same time, etc...)
PS: You can even now check out the behaviour in TotalmixFX (as it would be connected) - via: -> Menu -> Options -> Offline Device Setup...
