If the yellow response is what you get with your active xo I'd say you're way off. Standard fixed slope crossovers rarely work well with real drivers in my experience. Gated measurements of the tweeter and woofer would show you what's really going on. The purple trace is nice and flat but if that's in-room it probably isn't correct and will change with position. You need to see what the speaker is doing without the room influence.
Yss the yellow is what I get with the active xo without any EQ in the AV and at 1m distance in my room.
How can I measure without the room influence? Would it be better if in an open space (like the garden)?

You need to gate the impulse before the first reflection. Easy to do in REW. Outdoors and gated would be good because it would give you good data lower in freq. You should be able to get at least 3ms of good data which is sufficient for your xo.
