This is sitting directly at 90deg and about 48" away from a speaker with 2 drivers facing at 45deg and 135deg so not surprising to me that there was a hole with the sound coming from in front and behind the speaker but not from it.
I agree with Madmax. There is no null with a bipole speaker. A bipole can be thought of as a wide dispersion monopole.
