Thanks in no small part to this forum I've decided to up my audio on my new television.
This will be going into my family room which is roughly 11' X 17'+
I've jumped the gun a little by purchasing a Yamaha RX-V673.
I'm currently planning to buy the Pioneer SP-PK52FS 5.1 set. The reviews I've read suggest if there is a particular weak point in the system it is the subwoofer. Bass seems important to me. I really want to feel movies if I can.
Is there a subwoofer that would work well with the Pioneer speakers as a substitute and provide better bass?
Call me cheap if you must but I'd like to keep the subwoofer near the $100 mark of the pioneer but I'm willing to come up to $200 if that will make a real difference.
I agree with 2K, good bass is expensive and great bass even more so. On the bright side you have a small to medium size room which means there is not a lot of space to pressurize (unless you have an open floor plan and your room is not closed off to other rooms in the house).
As 2K said the Bic F12 is a pretty good choice at the $200 price range. If you really want to stick near the $100 budget the Dayton Sub 1200 is around $110 at parts express. And if you wanted to venture into the $300 range you could consider the Outlaw M8.
I don't actually own any of these but I have heard some good things about them in the threads. But I would do a search here in the forums on them to get a good idea what people think of them.
FWIW I would consider stretching my budget as far as possible to get the best subwoofer you can afford. A good subwoofer is a worth while purchase for great music and HT experiences.

Thank you all for the advice.
I think I will pull the trigger on the BIC F12 tonight.
I ran across the Onkyo SKW204 for $129 which looked interesting.
I've made up my mind but I can't help but be curious what difference there would be between the two in every day use?
Can't try everything though.
