Not sure price talk is allowed/encouraged here at AVS, definitely not from dealers, but I have a hard limit of $1200 for F112s off of eBay. With persistence, I've scored 2 so far, but of course it took 4 years (they typically go for over $2k so long as they're cosmetically ok).
My reasoning behind going with the F112 had to do with a few things:
1. Space/WAF - the F113 is 25% larger (by volume), not a big deal, but I'm going for the most discreet system possible. Further, these things are heavy, and I like to be able to move them myself without fear of injury - the F112 (at 98lbs according to my scale) is a nearing my comfort limit, but the F113 adds only another 15lbs.
2. Power - the power demands of the F113 should have you seriously considering 20A circuit(s) (if you don't already have them), especially if you're going with multiple units
3. Flexibility - I plan to keep adding F112s as space permits, which allows me to spread them out around the room. They make nice furniture anyway, and more subs will help to smooth out response while extending the bottom end
