Because a horn loaded design works better in that application.

Best regards,

Because bandpass boxes are one-note wonders?

It's probably OK to use them if you want your rig to sound like the one in the hot-rodded Kia that pulled up next to me at a stop light last night. He revved his engine and dared me to race him.  I couldn't hear the jazz on NPR over the THUMMMPING coming out of his trunk (and hopefully rattling his suspension to bits).
