I don't think a xover upgrade would make that much of a difference but the loss of a warranty might. Odds are Viva has already worked out the the optimum xover design.
Soon as you pop the screws out of a manufactured item you void the warranty

Try repositioning the speakers first. I think the cheapest and most effective tweak if speaker positioning. Add sub repositioning to the mix and you can really do wonders with what you have.

Or, you just may not like the particular sound of the the speakers you've bought...sound different at home that in the store?
Different room acoustics and different positioning make all the difference.
