Default Bass attenuator knob in loudspeakers

I have modified my DIY 2-way speaker to 3-way. The old 2-way system consists of a 6.5" woofer, SEAS H602, and a 1" tweeter, SEAS H400. Crossover network is an ordinary 2nd order. I added a passive subwoofer into each speaker to convert it to 3-way system. The sub is a 7" driver bandpass cabinet. They get along well with each other. But sometimes I think the sensitivity of sub is lower than the sat. So what if I added some potentiometers or attenuators to the sat in order to compensate for the sub? Any ideas?

A bass attenuator would reduce the bass. You want the opposite.

Sure, you could add an L-PAD, but they tend to be pretty wasteful of power. Better to use active EQ, or power the sub separately.

Best,

How about "fader" control? What if I rearrange the connection by using speaker A and B of amp, I will get 4 channel system, and putting the fader knob in between speaker A and B in order to assign for front and rear channel as in car-audio. Any advantages and disadvantages?

The simplest thing to do would be an L pad attenuator on the 2 way speakers.
