Of course, without a crossover the full frequency-range will be fed to both the monitors and the sub. The sub has a low pass filter, but some bass will come out of the monitors so there will be some overlap. (It looks like your monitors have a low roll-off switch but you can't control the "crossover" frequency.)

Thank you so much for your reply! I'm very newbie at this... so if possible, could you please give a bit more details on what is "appropriate adapters" mean?

and will
Nady CX-22SW 2-Way Stereo Crossover work for my case?

sincerely yours,
