The use of a full range driver has the benefit of removing the requirement for a crossover and the negative sonic impact that crossover can have on guitar tones. PC monitors usually have a sub-woofer which can muddle up the guitar tone, while near-field monitor have a crossover in the 2 3kHz region which is where the key part of a guitar's overdrive tone occurs.
The use of a full range driver eliminates the need of a sub woofer. This has the benefit of removing the requirement for a crossover and the negative sonic impact that can have. The key part of a guitar's tone occurs in the frequencies that are normally affected by a crossover and for music playback the performance is similar to nearfield monitors.
