im not positive, but i think it if you're talking about the mounting position, then it means that they midrange / tweeter can be mounted seperatly, or on-axis as a coaxial like setup.

Speaker pointing directly at you = on-axis
Speaker pointing in any other direction = off-axis

Okay so let's say I install my comps in my car's kickspanels - they face the center/each other. Is that off or on-aqxis?
