If you are using a simple treble pass system, fit a resistor twice the value of the tweeter impedance in series with the tweeter and reduce the series capacitor in value to half.

Thanks for the quick reply though!

Here's a useful source of information on all things crossover: The Crossover Design Cookbook

P.S. The resistor goes in series with both the capacitor and the tweeter.

The signal voltage is divided up in the same ratio as the resistances - in this case 2:1

So, the voltage (V2) which reaches the tweeter is only one third (0.33) of the full signal (V1).

You can convert to dB using this calculator:

Voltage to dB Converter

e.g. V1 = 1V and V2 = 0.33V gives -9.63dB
