Will I hear a huge difference?

I know this is probably a dumb question, but it is a huge investment. I've had the Ascents for about 18 years.

depends on your definition of 'huge' , a lot of audiophiles like to throw that particular adjective around ..... ;)

on the serious side, depending on the condition of your Ascents, perhaps. One thing is for certain, todays modern Logan Hybrids have far better panel to bass driver integration. Myself I can easily discern the difference on the older models

I am going to be brave and say, YES! I hope you have a chance to audition a pair in a local dealer. But MLs have come a long way. Good luck.

Not a dumb question! If they're Ascent 'i' (with Gen2 panels and aluminum cone woofer) then with a $100 active xo (plus an amplifier) you can make them active xo in the bass, and bump up their bass performance.

Rolls SX45 would work....
