The company will need to measure the speaker in an anechoic or quasi anechoic chamber to get the profile and input the correcting filters in the DSP.
It would be similar to what KEF does with the LS50W active speakers.
Will this improve the speaker performance susbtantially?

Euhm, its marginally effective. Basically you can flatten (or modify otherwise) each drivers response, you might be able to notch out some bad resonances, but other then that, you can't really do much about poor quality driver or poor crossover implementation. Its easier just to bypass the crossover completely and go active.
