It's a way to intentionally add reflections and delay to the higher frequencies. From my point of view, it's a way to physically implement something like one of the various "room simulations" provided in some receivers. Adding reflections that you can't remove prevents an accurate reproduction of the sound recorded on a disc or in a sound file.
Some people really like that kind of sound, though. There are a variety of speaker designs available which use room reflections in similar ways. Some omnidirectional speakers are very expensive.
