(Think of your typical bass-drum thwack.) The tone is sent to the crossover network and it routes the abrupt beginning to the satellites --and sends the steady-state, lower frequencies to the subwoofer.
The two Cantata midrange drivers in each system (which, if you remember, are really not high-pass filtered by the Cantata crossover network) are still prevented from dealing with low-bass signals.

Here we have a pair of three-way NHT M6 satellites, on their dedicated stands, coupled with two of the company's new W1 subwoofers, two of their subwoofer amps, and their rather elaborate outboard crossover network into their "Evolution" speaker package.
The AR-302 is filled with damping material to the point that it was hard to get the crossover network back in the box.
The crossover network that is used, or not used, in these usually bi-amplified speakers is also inherently flawed.
