    The AHBA uses the same X13 motor as the full size air handler(RHSA), the only differance is the physical size of the AHU(and the coil configuration). Rheem(weatherking) was the go-to for the smallest air handler size before the 13 seer switch, after getting blasted by angry contractors...they developed the abha to maintain the 35" size of the previous Rheem RBHA ahu's....and now all is well in the world again.

    Quality wise, there is no differance, I like the AHBA because it will fit anywhere.

    The AHBA21(with the correct coil) will work anywhere that the RHSAHM3017 will, there is no differance(that you need to be concerned with) between the evap coils and blower motors in either unit...check ARI if you are really worried about it.

    AHBA series do contain the x-13 motor, the -HSA contains a standard PSC motor, not the x-13.
    the x-13 is only found in AHBA/AHBL and UHLA/UHLL series.

    The perfect match for your old unit only exist's in a warehouse in texas somwhere, they do not make them anymore! The correct thing for you to do is have the condenser/heatpump installed with a new coil/ahu. ..............and have the ducts checked to be sure they can handle it.
