Depending on the xover slope, the RS260 on it's side may still give better off axis response... given the very tight driver spacing and the low xover point.... No, it wouldn't be symmetrical, but it...

True...

The one thing I like about the M series over the RS is that it looks (based on measurements at least) like Boston was able to flatten the rising top end. The downside, as you mention, is...
