I think their directivity is the largest factor, I was thinking also that they are effectively two sources in one speaker, which that quote above also seems to suggest

Been thinking about this and I'm still not sure there is any more in it. I think the pressure spread in space creates directivity and that's what I see the quote as saying. By comparison, the monopole as a single pressure point creates velocity toward the space all around it.

I used to run dipole bass. This was long before I learned to control room modes so I am struggling for a comparison (e.g. the definition of 'dipole sound') but I suspect that once they are fixed the two system types should come together in how they sound.

Perhaps there are some answers here regards room gain and what pressurisation may mean. room gain in case of dipole woofer?
