Beyond the VoxBox being a mono unit and the SLAM! being a linkable dual mono unit...

In the VoxBox you have an opto compressor prior to the mic pre, and their ELOP limiter in the "de-esser/full range limiter" section... with a comprehensive EQ section.

With the SLAM! you have killer sounding mic pre's, an ELOP limiter (which also lives before the mic pre's), a FET limiter [with variable attack and release times!], and the ability to use them both limiters simulaneously. The opto limiter also has onboard facilities for 3 different hi-pass filters... which can come in damn handy in a myriad of applications. And all that times two for stereo.

The 'dual metering' is a nice touch as well...
