I understand it and I had it also same feeling as you. It was a reason why I bought 2 pluses and single ultra and played with them. To be honest with you I never even think about to keep 2 subs. Since I bought receiver with 2 subs input and start reading about it here a lot I like idea of dual subs more and more. Because of small footprint and looks Me and my wife decide to go with cylinder ones. Single Plus sound amazing and give you a plenty of nice clean deep base and it is enough for a lot of people including me. Single Ultra is even better but the best is dual. It is trully amazing!!! I played many action movie parts o er and over again with 1 Plus, 1Ultra, dual Pluses. My wife gad no idea what sub is hooked up and she also from what we can hear said now it sounds the best( dual Plus set up). I also talk to people here and on SVS Jack and Ed all said same keep dual Pluses over single Ultra. So when one more factor for Plus in my case is size of tube, Plus is a good looking sub Ultra tube was too much tall for me and last factor for me to keep dual Pluses was a price. Because I had problems with delivery, 2 subs arrived damaged I got amazing deal on Pluses ( 2 brand new for $949/each) so I had no reason to think about different set up.
Price discount was nice but I will keep dual Pluses even for a full price. If I will have HT room not livingroom as I do I will maybe think about dual Ultras.
You are right amp is stronger driver is bigger but I dont think between a Plus and Ultra is a very very big different, it is stronger a bit not a lot lot more. Dual Pluses outperform single Ultra so now I can say I have Ultra and little
Price is also a factor for a lot if people a specially then you go dual so Like I said Plus or Ultra no disopoinment at all!!!!!!
