Default 10" (might) give lower bass

If the box is not large enough for the 15", then the 10" will result in a lower resonant frequency in that size of box. In a large box, such as a closet, the 15" will have the lower resonant frequency (assuming that it has a lower fs to start with).

What became of the 30" from Fostex. I saw them in the 80s?
Two of those would make a nice sub.

They were awesome and rattled the foundations.
They could make glasses slide off a table 30 m away and when I originally tested them at my home I had people and the police from half a block away coming to see what the noise was about, so where you think a 15 inch will be slaughtered by a 10 inch think again. I had 107 dB 4 m away on my slm on my veranda (porch).

Must have blown the sock budget on the speakers. In "Travels With Charley", John Steinbeck mentions someone saying " you must be very rich to dress so poorly". Most people I know that lead rich lives (not necessarily financially rich) dress like they don't own mirrors.

so as I'm understanding,

1) To get low Hz we must have to move air
2) big cones moves more air than smaller cones
3) but bigger cones are heavier...
4) if they are heavier they need more power...
5) so with a quality 15 inch, a good enclosure and a good power, there is no way a 10 inch can beat.
