Well, after looking through my disc collection for multichannel recordings looking for one that has a lot of center channel dynamics and high frequencies like cymbals and trumpets, I used a multichannel recording of Gordon Goodwin's Big Phat Band Swingin' For the Fences (which is one of perhaps 4-5 reference discs that I use for these purposes).    I've found that the Danley-style crossover without low pass on the midrange channel sounds definitely cleaner and clearer, much less harsh
