With a system like that the big question is how good they are balanced when you raise the volume. Had a logitech that raised the bass more then the other speakers.
That would have to be some sort of defect... A normal audio amplifier doesn't behave like that, and it would actually take some extra circuitry if you wanted to build something that worked that way.

The opposite can happen if you overdrive a bi-amplified system... The woofer takes more power than the mids/tweeters, so the woofer amp can often hit its limit before the other amplifiers hit their limits.

However, it's normal for bass to sound relatively stronger at higher volumes do the the Fletcher–Munson effect of human hearing-perception.

And if you've got boomy one-note bass, it's probably going to sound worse when cranked-up. Or, you could get bass-distortion when you crank it up.

In the old days receivers often had a "loudness" button which also did the opposite... It boosted the bass at low levels to compensate for the Fletcher–Munson effect (which makes bass sound too-weak at low levels). Loudness buttons don"t seem to be common on modern receivers.
