IMO, it would be an okay decision, but that $40 will get you almost half way to a second SUB-1200, which is where I'd put my money*.

(*I'd actually put it toward an SVS SB-1000 or PB-1000.)

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...

...get the Ultra.


Otherwise, get the PB- or SB-2000.

+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. :)

If you can stretch your budget just a little bit - to $246.90 - the well-rated NXG NX-BAS-500 (http://www.nxgtechnology.com/subwoofers.html) would be a solid choice.

Since your hand-me-down speakers sound decent to you, keep using them until they stop sounding decent to you. Then upgrade to something better. (In the meantime, start saving up for that day.)
