Personally i would say stick with the 10". I prefer them to a 15" anyday. Ofcourse I look for sound quality and not sound pressure level. Typically, the smaller the sub, the more accurate it is going to be. Unless you fork out some big bucks for a top end 15", its going to sound sloppy. Kicker is a great example of sloppy sounding bass.

This is a myth and is completely incorrect.  There is nothing inherently more "sloppy" or "tight" that is created by cone size.  It's all in the enclosure.

Your enclosure is on the small size for a 15" woofer at 1.5 cuft.  It could be used, however, and will sound a little boomy with peaks up around 60Hz, but it'll be OK.  I'd recomend filling it with polyfill (stuff at least a pound in) and throw about 500 watts at your CFT-15.  HERE's the specs in case you don't have them.

With most manufactures they use the same motor for the 10" 12" and 15" on a woofer of the same series. That being said, the 10" will be more accurate than the 15" because there isnt as much surface area for error. In other words, the motor will push the 15" more unevenly than the 10". Or atleast this is what I have been told time and time again by numerous credible people.
