The only way I think you can avoid using two large cages is if you keep them cage free during the day, using stands and play stations, then move them into smaller sleep cages overnight and on the occasions you must leave the house. This isn't very realistic over the long run unless you are home all the time.
Are these both young birds who will likely get along?

I have a Shamrock and a Greenwing in the same cage. Even though both are male and there is an age difference of atleast 4 years, they get along perfectly well. I did have them in separate cages for awhile but I leave the cages open all day, unless I leave, and they would always move to one cage and play together. So I moved one cage outside so they could play outside and I didn't have to worry about hawks. I would try to see how well they get along and go from there. Both of my cages are huge but they pretty much just sleep in them. My birds even play with the dogs. I have one dog that will let them ride on his back. We have been really lucky with our birds but its always a good idea to make sure you watch them closely...
This is pretty much how I work also; let the birds decide if they want to live together while keeping a close eye to make sure they are safe.
In the case of Eclectus though, I would never shut the cage door on two adult females, regardless how well they got along up to any given point. Ekkie females follow the Highlander theme, "there can only be one".
