Re: one 15 or two 12's
The OP was asking about taking up less space. Two 15's is quite the oposite. Bad idea.

If you're not worried about trying to break 150 dB and you're more concerned with your sub stage sounding better while taking up less room, there are a few options. But it all depends on what you want. If you want to be in the high 140's, take the SQ and box-size portions of the pie and chop it down quite a bit.
