RE: T-amp on a 15 inch woofer?

A large driver does necessarily require more more; often the opposite is true. Sensitivity, loading, impedance and phase angles, and QTS are more helpful indicators.

A large, efficient, low QTS driver with appropriate loading is likely to require less power and damping to achieve similar volume levels than a small, inefficient driver in a tiny bass reflex enclosure... you should also experience less sense of constraint/unevenness/strain, even if extension is not as 'deep'.
