    I'm going to be replacing a very old Onkyo home theater setup with a new 5.1 setup, and at this point I'm leaning towards Pioneer speakers. I've put together a system on Newegg containing:
    Pioneer VSX-1022-K 7.1-Channel 3D Ready A/V Receiver
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16882117410
    Pioneer SW-8 100W Powered Subwoofer
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16882117402
    Pioneer SP-C21 Center Channel Speaker
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16882117404
    2x Pioneer SP-BS41-LR 2CH Bookshelf Loudspeakers Pair
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16882117406
    Is there anything I could get instead that would be more bang for my buck?
    Also here's a picture of my cart for reference:

    The Pioneer subwoofer is the weak link. Look at BIC or Partsexpress (Dayton) . http://www.parts-express.com/pe/showdetl.cfm?partnumber=300-628

    Would it be a good idea to buy the 12" version of that sub?

    The bigger the sub, the better.

    Yes, the bigger the better. Typically, 8" subs go down to 35-40 hz. 10" to 30 hz and 12" to 25 hz. At least in this price range. After Dayton comes the BIC V1220 and F-12's which are $178-$200. Worth the extra cost if you can afford them.

    I'd throw $100 motre and wait for the klipsche RW-12 to go on sale for $300 like it always does.
