I pretty sure we are talking the same things, ie  

Phase shift = frequency dependent delay - spreads a signal out

Geometric arrival delay is linear phase - delays all frequencies equally (obviously)

I was just hypothesizing that a slightly geometrically misaligned bass horn might, overall, have better *group* delay characteristics than a perfectly (geometrically) aligned direct radiator.

I would guess that it is partly the higher frequencies coming out of the bass unit that make the geometrical misalignments so audible.
