Still, the lobing still applies, but in the vertical access now if we're talking about vertically-oriented speakers. This is a problem for a second row of theater seating, or if the energy directed at your sweet spot is ragged in response. This is solved with a w-m-t-w three way speaker. Or crossing one of the woofers of an m-t-m over at a higher frequency.
Still the sensitivity advantage may apply. There's a power-handling advantage (more drivers to output more spl), especially in frequencies of mid-bass. This is for equal diameter drivers, of course. A m-t with a six inch driver has more area than a m-t-m with two four inch drivers.
