    I would say high passed , about 80ish -100 or so depending on what your speakers are capable of.

    Because your speakers are not designed to reproduce subbass frequencies.

    Highpassing them not only saves them from being mechanically damaged by subbass frequencies, but also should allow their midbass and lower midrange to play a little cleaner by alleviating them of trying to reproduce the subbass frequencies

    Why send sub frequiencies to a speaker that is not designed to reproduce them? Robbing them of energry that could be used to reproduce midrange an increasing the odds that you will overdrive them.

    Edit: what they said as I was disstracted from typing a response.
