Passive crossovers do not [typically] have variable crossover frequencies. That is one of the downsides of passive crossovers; their crossover frequency is fixed. So no, there is no dial to adjust the crossover frequency like you find on an amp. The crossover on your amp would be an active crossover, not a passive crossover like what came with your component set.

There are some passive crossovers that have selectable crossover frequencies; but those are more complicated and expensive to build/design; so they are typically only found on higher end components.

Can you not get them to sound right or something?

no, i was just wondering....i cant even get my amp to quit blowing fuses long enough to adjust any settings.

Recheck all your wiring. Do you have a fuse under the hood.
