Who normally listens to music with their ear right next to the tweeter?
I often have my ears just right next to a driver (not tweeter)
To mimic the 'easy to hear the difference' method I would have to crank up the volume right to 120dB average SPL and high-pass shelve at a few a few kHz and then only listen to a the system without much or any signal.
So in reality it is not an audible difference but as one can see a difference in noise level of the system at a certain SPL that difference will become audible.
There is nothing strange about that.
Listening at 85dB average at 3m turns into the equivalent of around 120dB at 5cm from a tweeter.
So increasing the gain by 35dB at a quiet passage should make the difference audible.
