Meh, I usually just buy them off the local shaman, unless I'm in the wilderness, where I rely on raw meat to raise my HP.

Actually, whether the pickups are active or not does not make the bass itself active. "Avtice Bass" is a term which generally means the bass has a pre-amp - not that the bass has actice pickups...

Either put a preamp in it or active pickups. I have an EMG in mine.

On some Basses it is very easy, there is an excellent kit for Fenders from this company www.east-uk.com it is far superior to the electronics on the Fender active Basses.
