Q's re: pass filters

Hello, I'm in the process of making my Metro a little more pleasant to listen to tunes in and I'm very new to audio/electronics in general.

I've wired my front speakers with a high-pass filter which cuts, I think, 3.3khz and below. Too cold out to go check.

I THINK that I want to filter my rear speakers to only play 3.3khz and lower (lowest claimed frequency response is 60hz), the idea being to have lows behind and highs up front without installing an amp/subwoofer, which I plan to do at a later date. I'm wondering if

A) I could make a filter for that specification, as it doesn't seem easily procurable readily made, and
B) if it would be beneficial to have a filter for 60hz and lower, considering that's the lower limit of the speakers.

I understand that I'm not going to get fantastic sound out of $15 eBay speakers, but I'd like to get what I can out of them. Hopefully along the way I can learn some useful stuff for the future. Input and suggestions are appreciated.
