Simple. It changes the crossover frequency.

A crossover is just an LCR filter. That is, the inductors and capacitors utilize a set impedance to generate a filter slope. If you change any one component (i.e., capacitor, inductor, or resistance of the driver) the filter will change.

You really need to design a crossover from scratch if you make any changes to the drivers.
