Not quite. The human ear responds to higher frequencies that it
cannot "hear". This shows up in the "warmer" tone of live accoustic
music over highly-amplified or digitally recorded sounds. This is
why real streio fanatics still prefer analog recordings: they have
the warmer tone that digital recording techniques tune out.
On the other hand, you are unlikely to plug a $2000 amp into this
thing that is capable of pusing 1" tweeters to the necessary limits
