I couldn't stand my crossovers in that tiny metal box, so I ended up mounting them to some bamboo boards instead.  Here's the final state of my X3 crossovers:
No more adventures? I guess, it is the best crossover for you.

I actually changed the Path Audio resistors to Duelund silver CAST resistors.  In fact, I noticed that in my setup the tweeters were a bit subdued, so I changed the value from 8ohms to 7ohms and now the sound is much more balanced the way I like it. 

But yes, overall you're absolutely right - I arrived at the best crossover for me, I'm super happy with it and done tinkering with the speakers. 

Am I done doing upgrades period?  No, I'm now messing about with my ethernet switches and CAT8 cables, upgrading them all to audiophile parts.  It's nice that the speakers are resolving enough that even minor things like that can be heard pretty clearly.
