RE: Absolutely

Yes of course... If you are driving "through" the Sub's speaker connection it is loaded buy the combination of the Passive (Speaker Level) High-pass filter built into the subwoofer, and the Load of the loudspeaker connected to it. That means the possibly inexpensive Choke/Cap filter is right there in circuit with the main speaker.

That is why it is preferable to use the line level input to a sub and the receiver/preamp's line level HP crossover. Though since these are in two different components it is likely that they are not optimized for each other.
A stand alone crossover - or tuneable Bass management or DSP crossovers it likely to yield optimum results.

Because of room response irregularities - actual optimization is best left to measurements or by ear.
