ok on another level can you tell me if you own and know how to use a multimeter or what kind of background you have with electronics if any?
not that it's a requirement.
is this stuff used,new all working or don't know?
the reason i asked about your troubleshooting and skills is that it may come into play if we have to diagnose cables and interconnects to insure proper functionality of your system

ok i hope i haven't offended you in any way,just needed to evaluate your abilities.
after doing a little research on the gear you've got the crossover you have is going to be an issue it's a three/four way and your boxes are passive two way top's and sub's correct?
sorry just reread the manual online yes you indeed have a stereo two way configuration mode.
so from x-over low out's would go to the Crown pb3 to drive your sub's and the high out's would go to the ep2500 to run your top's

just run the main mix xlr's to the x-over inputs as a habit i run left out to x-over input 1 and right to input 2 and follow that through to the amps making input 1 of each amp left as in crown pb3 in 1 sub left and in 1 of the ep2500 left high and so on for the right,this usually results in a pretty logical layout of controls and clip indicators once you have this patched together you'll probably see what i mean when you start to tune things.

it would simply be inline as in mixer out eq in eq out to x-over
some consoles/mixers have inserts for this but that's another lesson after you've moved up the learning curve a bit!
if your unclear or need to ask about anything else please let me know.

p.s. welcome to the forum!
