If it sounds like a gorilla is trying to escape, turn it down.

First thing you have to do is think in terms of signal flow, you are connecting the crossover to the amps not the other way around. Then it's becomes easy, low crossover output goes to the first amp and then the signal jumps from the first amp to the second, second to third, etc. Then you do the same with the mid amps, and the highs.

The xlr cables will come out of your crossover and go into the amp inputs then xlr from that amps outputs to the next amps inputs and so on, this will feed each amp linked the exact same signal,
