They are different filters designed to do different things. Probably a great way to blow your machine up.

How would it blow it up? Is one denser than the other?

Yes, a HEPA in a pre-filter slot would clog up in no time followed by a familiar bubbling noise and burning smell..........

We have had a few in where people have inadvertently done that.

Hmm, I've cut up old sofa cushions to use as filters before, never had any issues, also used a car air filter for a while lol.

foam filter is a foam filter but a HEPA is completely different.

HEPA= densely packed with paper
and the pre motor filter is foam as Madrat mentioned ;)
DC14s are tanks, just need a slightly longer motor life. Do plastic parts often break on DC14s? Nope. DC41- Sexy looking futuristic and powerful machine. Just needs a better designed cleaner head wheel and cyclone clip along with a dense metal rod in the chassis.

There's no point in the pre filter being a HEPA as the HEPA is designed to capture miscoscopic particles for cleaner air. The motor produces carbon dust so it makes more sense for the HEPA to be after the motor  rather than as a pre filter.
