That is very well possible. It means that you don't have the real
pressure, not even at the sweet spot. Which is to be expected if
your room isn't free of LF reflections, as most are.

It's just a property of the higher order components in the near
field. If you look at the amplitude and phase plots of the higher
order NF effects, it's very evident that there is quite a large
phase shift even before the amplitude starts to rise by any
significant amount. Even for first order the +3dB point has
45 degrees phase shift - like a first order filter.
Also if you look at Moreau's 'useful bandwidth' filters for
synthesising near sources, you'll see that none of them has
more than 3 or 4 dB gain before going down steeply for lower
frequencies. This means that it is not the very high LF gains
of the higher order components that create a near source, but
the phase shifts.

With Bose you'd be lucky to localize anything at all :-)
There are three of them, and Alleline.
