    Hi all,
    Currently enjoying much improved sound biamping my KEF Reference 203 Speakers (by Rotel RMB-1095 5x200W amp).
    Now I'm thinking of further improvement by applying active crossovers in front of the power amp.
    Could build my own or buy a cheap ugly Behringer unit CX-2300.
    My speakers would have to be altered of course (xover is 400Hz).

    Now my big question is- will it really make a sonic difference hacking away the speakers' passive crossover board?
    And what away the L/M/H nature of the xover in the speakers, should I leave some parts in place or just connect the M with the H speaker units?
    Been reading on the B&W site and they advised against because they tune the speakers WITH the xover parts.
    Suppose KEF do likewise?

    Advice would be appreciated...
