    the 15 will give you tons of "whomp", but a 12 would be better for a punchier tone that hits you in the chest rather than the 15"s punch in the bowels. a 12 would be perfectly suited for a 5 string too.

    also, cause it seems you do alot of articulate work, a 12" would give you, thusly, better articulation. the 15" would be too muddy.
