Back to the image "thing". I suspect from what you guy's are saying it's probably a combination of several of the ideas and theories mentioned. I wonder if the effect would be similar if the speakers were taken out of the listening room and put in free space. All very interesting.
The last speakers I built ( My dad built with me ) were some large floorstanders using Peerless 10 inch bass and matching mid and I think an Audax soft dome tweeter. From Badger Sound in the UK if anyone remembers them.

Hi croat47,
maybe it's just a question of paying attention (to the sound, in that case). Truly you're right, our audition system is "forward biased" and supposed to allow better localization of sounds coming from front and sides. But a sound coming from behind is setting our brain in alert mode, so we are more attentive to it.
What we hear is not what our ears perceive, but what is sorted from these perceptions, consciously or not.
Psychoacoustics is a very interesting domain, not very much discussed in forums where technique is dominant (as always).

This makes sense to me, only complicates subjectivity a little more
