If you turn any sub up loud enough, it will be a problem for your neighbours.


But if you want the best sub - and you do...

+1 to dual PB-2000s. But it sounds like the OP would really rather thave the SB13-Ultra so, IMO, he should get the SB13-Ultra. :)

IMO, go 5.0 with the Pioneer gear and add the SUB-1200.

That said, if I were you I'd save up for something better like an SVS SB-1000. :)
