Yes, it was the natural mechanical rolloff I was talking about. If you look at plots of response versus frequency, the curves tend to get ugly toward the limits of woofers.
The nice thing about passive crossovers is that you can decide where in the frequency spectrum you want the cross to take place (hopefully, a nice flat spot in the frequency response of both speakers).
There is a difference between hearing and listening...
