What is a "near perfect square wave"? It's just as perfect as the whole audio system bandwidth allows it to be. So your question can be reformulated as: "Do I need a larger bandwidth for production than that of the final user system?"
The better is your monitoring system, the better is the final result. "Too good speakers" don't exist.
Note also that some audiophiles use the same grade of speaker than mastering facilities. So you can't make any assumption on the final bandwidth if an analog support is used. When using digital media for audio, the bandwidth is standardized for both production and distribution.
