Lives for gear
I like active crossovers like XTA and BSS when I need to use them. The most important thing to me is that the speakers sound ACCURATE, either the best the manufacturer can make them sound, or the best they can sound while being sonicly correct and accurate from phase response, frequency & amplitude.
If I were you, I'd contact the manufacturer of the speakers and find out exactly what THEY suggest you do for wiring. While a three-way Y is fine, it will change the impedance of the line level (no longer 600 ohms) which means that the mix will translate differently on other speakers. THAT is my primary concern. If it were MY gear, I'd either use an external crossover (like an XTA DP226 with L/M/H out) for distribution unless I had amplifiers that utilized an electronically balanced, buffered pass thru of the input signal (like many Crown amps have.) But its YOUR call!!!!
Hope this helps!!!
