Not necessarily

It depends on what you listen to and what kinds of music stresses your system now.

Perceived loudness is determined by the midrange frequencies. High-pass filtering the main speakers won't affect that, so your system won't play any louder, except maybe in the bass.

If bass heavy music (dubstep etc.) is what causes you to hit your system's limits, then you might be able to use a smaller amp if you high-pass the mains. But if you're more of a jazz or classical listener, or even mainstream pop & rock, I suspect you will still need the power you have now.
