It's always 'what's the application?' .....

Typical seated, home hi-fi sweet-spot, equilateral triangle, stereo setup....I doubt vertical pattern matters that much, other than getting the right tonality after room response piles on.

If you want more than seated, vertical obviously matters...

EQ cannot solve or really change the vertical pattern. (or horiz)

The best EQ or xover design can do pattern-wise, is change lobing patterns for particular listening heights. (assuming vertically stacked drivers).

EQ can only really change overall power response ime.... simply by shaping overall response.

Always the application (and preferences)...horses for courses

Thank you for the confirmation, guys.

I have had an idea that more vertical axis beaming would be better than less beaming in domestic rooms because less interference from the ceiling and floor. Please correct me if I'm wrong.
