And what is the output? Phase shifts, nonlinear distortion, etc. and as a result, a "lifeless sound"

The frequency cut of tweeter driver in modern audio systems is in the average range from 2.5 to 3 KHz. This means that tweeter driver playing unusual for its desig frecquency range.... And actually it’s very sad, due to the fact that people have no choice...
