Parametric arrays are an ongoing area of research here at DXARTS (see here
can confirm that the sound of reflections is very pronounced such that when
listening in the path of the reflection it is louder than the source
itself. Very interesting when it moves :)
While I haven't heard the two speakers you mention, the audio spotlight
<https://www.holosonics.com> is quite a powerful, highly directional
speaker (though expensive). By nature of the "parametric" phenomenon, low
frequencies are quite difficult to reproduce, and it's highly dependent on
the hardware and signal (pre-)processing as well. The audio spotlight uses
electrostatic transducers, so it has a wider frequency response than other
products which use piezoelectric transducers, and it also helps that the
speaker aperture is large.
