Since you're running subs, why not make life easier and use 12" main speakers?

Well it will be lighter and smaller, and should be fine down to a reasonable sub crossover point.

The 12" will beam at a higher frequency, that means you can xo higher with the same dispersion and chose a different HF driver (the Eminence PSD:3014 is really not very good). If you don't need the low xo ability of the 15", 2x10" + 1,4" would also be a nice option, that's still the midrange and highs would sound much better and it's still ~40% more cone surface than a 12". A 2x10" + 1,4" will not go as low as a 15" though.
