You said Speakers, but did you mean Speaker or did you mean Driver, as in a Bass Driver or a Midrange Driver?
And what other drivers are in the system?
How is the speaker being used? Stereo? Part of a Multi-Driver Speaker System? PA? Musical Instrument?
If that is a guitar speakers that is abut right. If that is a Bass Driver for a Stereo Speaker, it must be relatively small.
The application matters. If this is a single driver stand alone speaker, then it can be used as is. If this is one driver of a multi-driver speakers, then you need some type of Crossover or filter.
You simply haven't given us enough information for us to make a determination.
Also, speaker ratings and crossovers are not Brick-Walls. At the rated frequencies, the drivers starts to fade out. They roll-off, they don't just end.
