A larger diameter cone has to move a lot less to get the same volume of air moving; so the PS-12 will (theoretically) always have slightly less distortion at any power level, compared to the PS-10. That's in theory; I haven't heard either, much less compared them sonically.
I think the only advantage I would see in practical terms is that the PS-12 is more "upgrade-proof" compared to the PS-10, so it's a better investment, imho.
Perhaps you can ask the same question in the subwoofer section of this forum, surely somebody there will have tried/tested both subwoofers and many others too, and should be able to give you more qualified advice.
