I wouldn't say you can't go wrong either way.
The OP said he's using the sub 100% for movies. He's looking for "a sub that will push me back into the chair and startle me" "I want a DEEP throttled experience. I want the feel the helicopter passing through my living room or the explosion flowing through me as the flames pass over the camera"
The PB13 will suit his need much better, and it is half the price. Especially since the size of the PB13 isn't an issue to him and money is a factor. IMO it would be stupid to go with a F113.
The F113 is a fantastic sub, but for HT, the PB13 is a better sub at a much better price.
