Might it do any speaker damage "long term" if facing the cabs to the side walls of my Garage so when hanging out in the middle of Garage we will be heard the bass from in front of the side the Speakers?

It's totally surprising to me that these two 15" full range speakers sounds twice as loud using it as subs as the EAW SB1000 dual 18 sub to begin with.

Yes as was known before, the placement of the sub in this crappy room is everything. I just placed the two 15's at the back wall facing forward and they sounded crappy but when I turned them to the side facing the side wall BIG difference. Only problem is they are rattling my shelves and ceiling with even lower bass, that's the amount of bass they are giving out when placed in that position.

The only thing I seem to have no problem with is when I run the full range speakers normally from the back wall facing forward. I am not understanding why a TRI-Amp system's sub is giving these problems and not the bass from the full range speakers running off a receiver when placed in the same spot?

Because the sub is going lower.  You're equating the low mids with the low lows (which are 'harder' to hear).

I would be looking into why the sub is not working before these speakers meet the same fate.
