Post compression drivers

What is gained by compressing sound before it reaches the exponential horn, where it de-compresses?

This applies more frequently to high frequency drivers, but is also used in low frequency cabinets.
I'd welcome your interpretation, or access to the theory of sound compression.

One issue is getting all frequencies to the throat in phase.
