I would go for dual Hsu VTF3s personally. But you say you want max bass, the FV15HP will have the most output from any of those options.

shadyj,

I am just looking for the "hit you in the chest" bass feel in the room.

You need something capable of high output in the midbass region. Doubtful any of those will do the job. Will the sound great? YES but probably not going to give you much if any tactile response like chest impact bass. Of the ones you listed I would lean toward the HSU 15 or Rythmik. The PSA XV30f would be another good option.

Lil Mikes tapped horns or Bill Fitzmaurice's Tuba Home Theater would be best. Great efficiency and effortless midbass with some going down to 20hrz and lower.

Dual subs will give you a more even and consistent bass sound throughout the room. A single powerful sub will give you more bass, but it will be more erratic in both the frequency response and in different areas of the room. If you really only have one place you sit where you listen to music, it might be worth your while to get one powerful sub and find a good location for it with respect to your primary listening position. One thing I woudl encourage you to do for a more visceral feel is to use near-field placement if you can, this is where you place the sub very close to the listening position, like right next to the seat or right behind it. Also, if you decide to go for a variable tuned sub, like the Hsu subs, the Rythmik, or the higher end SVS subs, use the all ports open configuration, that will get you the most punch.
