There are several simple ways to lower the turbulence of the overflow that might be easier things to try first. Instead of a sponge around the siphon tube, a ring of sponge around the outer edge of the overflow box would slow the falling water as it approaches the water level and prevent it from splashing. Alternately a ripped up pot scrubber or similar could provide more surface area to allow laminar flow without splashing.
