OK, what type of distortion is when drivers are emanating same/similar frequencies from different areas of the diaphragm?

Yes, but the point is to be able to stiffen a much larger area of the diaphragm to a higher frequency before it's no longer pistonic to keep from the above happening, or at least much reduced.

That would be "linear distortion", a frequency response change.

OK, thanks! But having a driver stay linear to a much higher frequency reduce IMD?

You might get 'non-linear distortion' with the suspension, the amp and the speaker motor, and a few others.

There is some truth in this. While breakup does not cause the nonlinearities by itself it can boost the HD and IMD products caused by the motor noinlinearities.
