I'm running an XLS2500 and Peavey PV115's. I've been running them is stereo bypass mode, making eq adjustments as needed on my mixer. I'm happy with the sound and performance. The frequency response on these speakers is 66Hz-17KHz, Any advantage to utilizing the high pass filter on each channel set to 66 Hz?

Yes, but I'd set it down further in the 55Hz range.  Using the HPF will free up more power in the amp and prevent speaker stress.
