With an active crossover you don't care about impedances and senstitivities you just match the amp; much, much easier than trying to maintain damping factor with disparate drivers in a passive set up. You might be forced to bridge a power amp to match new drivers, or even buy a new, higher powered amplifier, but matching levels on a system like that is no problem, and the set up will work straight off.

Do yours have a broad scoop out of the frequency response, with the center frequency at about 1.5khz?
