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
+1. Volume has nothing to do with the crossovers. Sure, you'll have more air being pushed by the woofers at louder volumes, but that doesn't mean the crossover is allowing more or less of a certain frequency through.

Now, if we are talking crossover built into a receiver or preamp, they roll off and aren't a brick wall. I'd recommend setting the crossover of your speakers at least 20Hz higher than they are recommend to go down to.

Hope that helps.
