However, I would prefer to go the mono route with the Anthem SL because I do a lot of open mics and don't have the luxury of stereo output/input.

My understanding is that the SL has a fixed crossover and the mic volume is just a blending function. So, I wonder if the baked in EQ in the SL preamp makes much difference (compared to the full Anthem) since it's just handling frequencies below 250 Hz?
I know UST's have a bad rep here on AGF, but in the case of the Anthem SL having a crossover at 250 Hz (as you mention), I wouldn't worry too much about it if you just want to go mono. It's great by itself. Give it a shot if you want, but I don't think you'll have very good results simply plugging the K&K into the UST port of the Anthem.

FYI, I go mono out in my dual source setups. But yes, it requires a mixer of some kind. For years I used a 2 channel combo amp as the mixer. Recently I got a Helix, which works great as a mixer, and has tons of routing and effect options.
