Yes. There is a trend to put speakers on facets aimed at creating reflections, yet doubling them up can reduce their dispersion. Plus, why two tweeters per face and two mids. Isn't there a changing need with frequency, or was this to make things look symmetrical? I'm uncertain. Could there be something hidden in the crossover?
-looks a little like it's trying to control horizontal radiation with combing (..basically a 5-way design).

..the close proximity drivers to widen the top of their output and the far driver pairs to narrow the radiation at the bottom of their output.

Its either going to work well or it isn't.
If you get lucky and throw it in a box with favorable boundaries and alter the port (providing its a BR not sealed).

A better one is what would happen if you wired the N/P wires on a 15" sub to a live AC thats packing 120 volts?

I already know the answer. Dont try this at home btw. Don't stand or put anything in front of it if you decide to.
