I had some old "Infinite Slope" brand speakers years ago that had 100+dB-per-octave crossovers. Loved the sound of the speakers - but really can't say whether the crossover slope did anything for them. I suspect that it did, since the phase distortion problem that is inherent in crossovers was mitigated to a great degree. But now we have DSPs that can compensate for that to some degree, and there are both advantages and disadvantages to both conventional and "hard-wall" crossovers. The Audio Theory forum ought to have a good discussion about this.
