What do you mean? You had a degraded array, removed 1 disk, and now the system doesn't boot? Are you sure you pulled the right disk?

When both disks failed on the same moment, I guess you either dropped your nas, or you had a spike on the mains, or your powersupply died, and took the disks to it's grave.

As you hear a clunk when powering up the disk, I guess it's the first option.

They replaced both drives, I powered it off, inserted them and powered it up then held the reset button for 15 seconds... still just a white flashing light... what now?!

"They" is Iomega?

There are two types of ix2's, 'diskless' onces, and 'preinstalled' onces. The 'diskless' samples have a big flash memory containing the firmware, and able to install it on a new, empty disk. The ' preinstalled' samples are sold with disks inside, with the firmware installed on the disk. If you have the latter type, and two new, empty disks, the box cannot boot.
In that case a recovery stick is needed.
