Gee, thats a loaded question.....I will put my two cents worth.

A crossover if its of good quality will simply alow what it was designed to let through. So if the signal has lower or higher frequencies than what the speaker crossover can handle it simply wont let it through.
If you have the volume low and play bass heavy material the driver simply is not going to move the amount of air required to hear it. As you get louder this changes and until you near the drivers max excursion you will hear more detail in the lows. The cabinet design also plays a huge part in what you hear as well.

Tony, you say it will simply prevent low frequencies from getting there? Where then does that energy go? :scratchhead: Or am I looking at this the wrong way?
The extra energy is given off as heat, I have actually had a crossover start a fire inside of some Pro Tanoy PA speakers because of the heat. A crossover should be able to breathe.
