Question Hit Collection for multiple Sensitive Detectors

I have a question regarding the Hit Collection when you have multiple sensitive detectors (SDs).

At the moment I have two identical PMTs set as SDs. Since they both have all of the same properties (except their position) I would like to use the same SD file for both PMTs and just have them inherit the properties from that file (initially I had two separate SD files for the two separate SDs). My problem is that I don't know how to give the two different SDs separate Hit Collections since the Hit Collection is defined in the SD file (and they both share the same file).

From looking at the LXe example it would appear that the Hit Collection is an array where each element of that array corresponds to a particular SD. Is this correct? If not, how can I have two SDs share the same SD file and still have separate Hit Collections?

Thanks for the help.
