Need speakers that can rock with just one watt? You found da place.

Why do line arrays using directional speakers require shorter lines for similar near field performance?

Manufacturers of directional line arrays claim this and it seems to make sense. The more a speaker projects its sound forward instead of to the sides and back the further the near field should extend. Could it be that simple? By directional speakers I an referring to horns or rear cancelling designs as opposed to the typical direct radiating line arrays.
