Of the two, the cabinet with the more narrow width has a higher baffle step frequency and apparently does a better job at projecting a stereo image. I'm not sure exactly how narrow of a width is narrow enough to improve imaging, and this is something that is generally agreed to on the basis of listening, in other words, a purely subjective judgement.

As already stated, narrower will reuslt in a higher baffle step frequency (see here for more info --> Baffle Step Compensation) . Another advantage to narrow and deep, as opposed to shallow and wide is that you are less likely to get rear wall reflections coming back through the cone with a deep cabinet. Narrow cabinets also tend to have better WAF
