I have been told it is allways favoured to vertically align the individual woofers and drivers on a baffle.
As I understand this is to avoid lobing and getting the individual sources to match up better and improve imaging.

A speaker like the JBL S9900 follows this aproach, but the JBL Everest DD66000 or DD67000 doesnīt.
The Everest speakers only use one of their 15" woofers to run up high to the horn. So the center of the "midrange-woofer" isnīt vertically aligned with the center of the horn. It is offset by about 8".
I wonder how this affects the overal presentation?
Is this considered to be a major tradeoff in this speaker-layout or is the offset of such small amount that it doesnīt really affect the sound?

Best regards,
