Re: Advice on SQ Component Speakers. Price Range $150-$300
I was trying to type up my own explanation and it was coming out horribly. I found a post on DIYMA from Andy Wehmeyer of Harman International that is really chock full of information, but he goes over polar response and some related topics that are really valuable to know.

By intentionally preventing beaming(technically, the tweeters will beam but let's ignore that) I'm not so concerned about how far off axis my ears are from any of the speakers, and the same applies to my passenger.
