LVX12 for sure. The HSU VTF-2 mk5 will be similar to the LVX12. VTF-2 is currently on sale for $574.

Klipsch can have unreliable amps.. not worth playing the reliability lottery over

Currently have an LVX12 in a 13X17 room and I am very satisfied with it. I would recommend the Rythmik based on my experience with mine. I haven't listened to these two side by side to compare, but I've been super pleased from reaching out to the guys at Rythmik for advice, all the way to receiving it and them answering questions on setup.
They hang out in the official Rythmik thread, and answer emails promptly if you have any questions.

I think if you search around the forums you'll find their products highly recommended.

If you are considering the FV15HP at $1400, consider dual subs as you get a nice discount from Rythmik. A pair of LVX12 would be fantastic in that size room. You lose a little low end grunt compared to the FV15HP, but your bass response in the room would be smoother and more consistent. This is especially good when you have multiple seating options.

That's a nice setup you have. Investing in a strong sub, makes a huge difference in your experience.

1) You aren't going to go wrong with any of these subs or brands. These are all excellent subs and going to really be an upgrade.
2) Once you properly calibrate your system using Audyssey, you won't overpower your system regardless of the sub you choose. The system won't allow it, which is the beauty of calibrating it. (Obviously you can always turn the output knob on the back of your sub higher, but that's overriding the calibration)

You have a few different schools of thought. Some say go as big as you can and I get that. Others say go dual, and I get that too.

Whatever you choose, personally, I think the FV15HP would be an overkill in that room.
If you wanted a little more than the LVX12 offers, check out the FVX15 from Rythmik. The real difference will be how much overhead or "reserve" you have for the super loud and deep scenes. Sure, you want some extra horsepower in reserve, but at some point you run into a situation where you aren't coming close to utilizing the potential of your sub, at that point you just threw a few hundred bucks into something you never use that you could've put into acoustic panels or whatever you're next upgrade will be. (And there will always be an upgrade somewhere, hehe...)

I would get the bigger rythmik and do a sub crawl. You have an older, not very advanced version of Audyssey that doesn't do any processing of one subwoofer, much less 2.

I think you would be fine, but if you have the extra cash and you are afraid you would have doubts and only want one, no harm in going larger.

My suggestion is to shoot Enrico at Rythmik an email. Include your room dimensions, pictures of your room, what you will be using it for primarily (movies, music, etc) and see what he recommends.

You won't find anyone that knows these subs better than he does and what they can do. I was in a similar situation to you and I decided to go dual LVX12s instead of (1) FVX15. I went with the LVX12 and with the money I saved, I was already halfway to a second one.

They are very knowledgeable and helpful.

Always get the biggest, most powerful sub you can fit and afford, then plan on getting a second one sometime down the road.

The FV15HP would NOT be overkill in that room.

A pair of LVX12s would no doubt provide you with a good experience but a pair of FV15HPs would be that much better.

Actually, in that room a pair of F15HPs or F18s would be great. You'd get a ton of room gain.

If your budget is $1300, then go for the FV15HP. The FVX15 would be a good choice too. Like @drh3b mentioned, having a receiver without Audyssey XT32 + SubEQ HT, a pair of subwoofers could be a challenge. Unless you have plans to change your receiver any time soon, my vote and recommendation is for a single FV15HP. If you get a receiver with XT32 + SubEQ HT then get a pair of LVX12s for almost the same price as a single FV15HP.
