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.co...N82E16882117410

Pioneer SW-8 100W Powered Subwoofer
http://www.newegg.co...N82E16882117402

Pioneer SP-C21 Center Channel Speaker
http://www.newegg.co...N82E16882117404

2x Pioneer SP-BS41-LR 2CH Bookshelf Loudspeakers Pair
http://www.newegg.co...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-exp...tnumber=300-628
"Everyday room": Panasonic 58" Plasma, Dish HD DVR, Pioneer Elite vsx-23, BDP-23 BR, dv58avi universal dvd player, Paradigm Studio 20 V1, CC-450, Dayton HSU-10 subwoofer.

"Movie/Music room": Toshiba 65" DLP, Dish HD receiver, Marantz 7005, CC-4003, BD-7006, Polk LSI25's-LSi7's-LSiC, 2 original Dayton 10" "Mighty-Mites" subwoofers. (subject to change without notice).
 
Also have  MB Quart Vera VS05 +.....too much to list. Help me.

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.
