Volume has little effect on the crossovers. They are designed to direct the highs to the tweeters and the lows to the woofers. Increasing the volume will cause distortion in the woofer as the level goes up. If your speakers are fused, they will be protected, but, if not, playing them loud can destroy the drivers (I speak from sad experience with WOTW on DTS!). You may want to consider a sub to handle the frequencies below about 100 HZ. This will relieve the small woofer in your speakers and, make you smile more during low bass. Hope this helps, Denins

As long as you keep within the power rating of the speakers, you shouldn't have any problem. If you do play something loud, make sure it is only for a few minutes (or seconds). Also, any distorted sound will be more likely to damage speakers. As far as whether to set them to large, or small, that is up to you - especially if you like it better that way. Have fun. Dennis
