Horizontal vs Vertical biamping
Analog XO like those mentioned are still compromised, just like a passive, in that they have fixed orders and no delay. IF one listens digital sources, DSP makes so much more sense: time alignment infinite slope capabilities driver anomaly c... 
Horizontal vs Vertical biamping
Not sure your Legacy’s would see the same dramatic improvement. Read the active vs passive XO link above. With amp connected directly to the driver, the amplifier is in total control of the motion. If there is ’iron’ and ’paper’ in the circuit... 
Horizontal vs Vertical biamping
Not only that, but it's my experience that while the physical XO Hz & order may be known, they are only a starting point. Better performance may be obtained with active XO Hz & order quite different from stock params.  
Horizontal vs Vertical biamping
Why do you have to remove the passive components from the speakers, don't you just have to bypass them and can still leave them in the speaker cabinet? You could leave them in the box, but they should be disconnected from the drivers. You could... 
Horizontal vs Vertical biamping
When multi-amping with active XO, you  M U S T  remove the passive XO components from the speakers.   Regarding deltas between horizontal and vertical, there are multiple possible combinations of amp channels and speaker drivers in each configur... 
Horizontal vs Vertical biamping
Bi-amping with internal XO is a waste of time in either direction. See Active Vs. Passive Crossovers (sound-au.com) Digital XO from the source can be stellar if you know what you are doing.

Breaker’s normally will trip at about 80% of the stated value Breakers run for several of seconds at several multiples of the rated value. Trip at rated current is likely a defective breaker.  How long depends on the Trip Curve. See Understand...

That's the way we wired studios. Some studios went all the way to the street with separate panels for the lights, air/con, coffee makers, etc. and 100% separate for the audio. In my systems, the audio and entertainment are 100% separate and only ...

First I'd have to eliminate the myriad things which affect sonic impressions: power line variance, temperature, humidity, atmospheric pressure, voice coil temperature, CBLF inconsistencies, etc. I've been at this game for more than ½c. and exper... 
Electrical Power Outlet advice
Don't run more than one circuit. The induction into two circuits is not identical and the delta may be enough to induce ground noise between interconnected components, particularly if phono is involved. @retiredfarmer  please detail how you dete...

Buy American. The stuff from China is utter garbage. You are better off to have an overcurrent circuit [20A] and multiple outlets closely connected that spread outlets on multiple circuits. That being said, a 12ga / 20A circuit at full current dr... 
Finding a specific cable
Balanced only pay benefits is noisy environments. Improperly done, they can be worse that unbalanced.  
Finding a specific cable
Unfortunately, I need a 40’ run for. my speaker cables or interconnects (one or the other). I’m looking for the best options. Interconnects should take up most of the distance. Many esoteric speaker cables have LC properties that can wreak hav... 
Finding a specific cable
That type of cable has high capacitance. Not good for some amplifiers. You can craft similar from ordinary ribbon cable if you must have flat cables. Better performance can be obtained by using woven ribbon.   P L E A S E  read these before plun... 
Moved from medium attic like room to larger room, everything is too bright
If you haven't a visit to hunecke.de | Loudspeakers Calculator would be worth a visit. Unfortunately it doesn't allow sealed subs. If it's too daunting, PM me with dimensions and room photos and I'd have a go there and in REW.
