It's your money, and the Ultra is a nice sub but I've heard dual Ultras and a single Captivator in the same room and the Captivator was far more impressive than the dual Ultras. Especially on music, if you like music IMO the Ultra won't give you near as much punch and feel like the Caps will.
I own Submersives and I prefer them to the Captivators on music, by a smaller margin than how much more I liked the Cap compared to the SVS Ultras.
If I had your budget I would buy a JTR Captivator Sealed 2 - same type of sound quality as the Submersive with twice the output, or a JTR Orbit Shifter which has twice the output above 20hz as the Captivator Sealed 2, but much less output below 20 hz.
Or you could raise your budget a bit and get what I have, dual Submersives.
Here is the Cap 2 sealed, scroll through the thread to see pics it looks awesome.
Here is the orbit shifter
Here is the Submersive:
Both JTR products are 2999 and the submersive is 2295, so all withing your budget.
I think you are making a mistake going with the Ultra, I don't want to offend Ultra owners but I just think the other options are that much better.
