Technically the interest of an active filter start where the power limitation of a passive filter stop.
therefore also can be use on low power system.
but you will have to make a choice active or passive, not both...

before connecting such equipment you must know;
- the crossover frequency (cut) from your speaker internal passive filter.
- the power from each elements. (bass, mid, hi)

Remember the active crossover Linkwitz-Riley filters with 24 dB/octave.
