I do have two boxes containing 2 1TB drives each. I want to install 2 2TB drives in each box giving me 2 separate 4TB boxes. Assuming the Acomdata boxes controllers will work. Can I just install them and have them mount as a 4TB box or do I need to use Disk Utility to create a RAID?

If the box supports the bigger drives, it's possible that the controller will automagically RAID the drives. Otherwise they'd have to provide some sort of tool to make it do it.

You haven't said the actual model name so.... googling around a little, on Acomdata's site it says there are no drivers - it just uses the OS provided ones. That's normal. Doesn't seem to say anything about fixing or rebuilding the raid, tools, etc.
