Dc protection systems work from around 0.6 volts to maybe 1 volt but after that they disconnect the output to the speakers.
What dc voltage does to a speaker is simple: It heats it. When dc is apllied to a speaker it moves in one direction and when it stops the dc current produces heat. It depends on the cooling of the speaker. It also depends on the crossover. Only the woofer probably doesn´t have a capacitor in series to it. So it´s probably what has dc on it.
