Active setups like that almost never sound right. You're better off buying a better amp.

I was surprised to read you're going to use the J2 for midrange. Why? Because as I was reading your thread I was thinking all along to recommend the M2. I wasn't sure if it had enough power but probably would as you're using the J2.
I love the way my M2 presents the upper frequencies. Only wish I could find a higher power amp that had that presentation without breaking the bank.
If you have a very good tweeter, a pure Class A wide bandwidth amp of 5 to 20 watts would be nice.
Pass had a project one years ago, that I made which drove the treble panel of Quad ESL57's and a Kelly Decca ribbon as also >12khz
He may have done a First Watt one since, these are the perfect tweeter amp, even mid range as well, in a 3 way as you have.
BTW the First Watt B4 is a killer active Xover
