**Irrelevant. XLRs are VERY common in higher end domestic systems. XLRs
are an entirely appropriate connector and inexpensive.

**Sure. Most are. However, 2 female and 2 male XLR connectors/adapters
are not a crazy idea.

**Possibly. Which is why I pointed to an eBay sale. The Behringer is a
cheap option and, IME, cheaper than a quality, analogue, paramtetric EQ.
Either way, I already provided the most suitable solution, which could
cost almost nothing - room treatments. Room treatements will almost
certainly solve the problem.

**Irrelevant. XLRs can be disconnected and re-connected as rapidly as RCAs.

**Sure. However, a standard 10 band EQ is almost a waste of time. At the
very minimum, a parametric EQ is the only item worth bothering with.
Parametric (analogue) EQs tend to be expensive, unless one is looking
for a digital parametric EQ. I related a story about an ancient,
analogue parametric I recently bought and re-sold for a substantial sum.
A second hand Behringer can be a much cheaper option. And one that has
some significant advantages. That said, I will stand by my original
suggestion - room treatments are the best option. They can be cheap,
effective and easily removable.

**I agree. Room treatments will be, by a long margin, the best option.
