Because the world was flat back then? :think:
Cars often have 6x9s in the parcel tray; maybe it was just to make it fit the space?

I’ve got a Celestion 8” speaker lying around somewhere out of a Vintage radio. Mine is round though, be interesting to know if it sounded much different doing a modern 12” speaker the same shape as that one.
