Default impedance matching question

I am using a 3way stereo active crossover unit to drive amplifier modules which have an input impedance ranging from 2-5K. The crossover has balanced outputs rated at 60 ohms becoming 30 ohms when strapped to be unbalanced. Should I do something to match it all better or is it not worth worrying about.

As long as the crossover has similar or lower impedance than the input to the amplifier, that will be fine.
