The only difference between the needs of music and HT is how low they go. Music is pretty much good with 35Hz, HT with as low as 15Hz, depending on how fanatical your are about it. Some say that subs that do work well for HT for some reason won't work as well for music as subs that don't go that low, but that's not the case. If a sub has accurate response it will sound good, no matter how low it goes. If it doesn't, it won't.
As for what the ultimate sub is, you'll get about as many opinions as you will answers. No offense OP, but it's a silly question. You might as well ask what is the best car, boat, whisky, beer, pizza, whatever.
