Default why is the tweeter angled upwards ?

I've recently stumbled across one of those unusual speakers that hasn't attracted much attention on the forum - most likely because of the claims made by the manufacturer. Nevertheless, I can't figure out why it has a tweeter that is angled back so that it points upwards at 45degrees to the horizontal ??


Any ideas ?

I'd guess it's an attempt to create an omnidirectional effect. Note also the woofer(s) are side-firing.
