Not easy to answer as you have the amp pack to repack the passive crossover, but a critical issue is the calibration, adjusting each driver for level and phase. You cannot do it by ear. We are set up to do this here in the states at Lone Mountain/TransAudio, but its taken us a LONG time to get there and spending a lot on test equipment. Plus we have a specialized room and equipment that replicates ATC's (a key factor) . Since most of us, distributor or not, don't have easy access to this gear or the specific factory calibration procedures, buying and installing an amp pack may not be a step forward. Sending a passive speaker in to ATC for amp pack upgrade would be the way to do it- then you'd have a proper active speaker. We are at the point where we could almost do it in our service department but we don't have the exact procedures every model speaker, and the age of the tweeter would make a different if not the new ATC tweeter. A 1/2 dB difference in amp level on the HF amp could spell the difference between "way too bright" and "dull sounding".
