Welcome to TB!
IMO, basses in that price range sometimes need extra work on top of a decent setup to get it where you really want it, but you should be able to get it close using the setup sticky here and the wealth of info you'll find here and YouTube, etc.
You'll be able to find the "sweet spot" for everything setup related in time, including what amount of neck relief and pup height works best with that bass. The pup height on active vs passive isn't really any different IME, andi believe it's the preamp that's active on your bass, not the pups. Try rolling the volume down a little if it continues to woOow after pup height is straightened out. If it still wooOOows after that, try a lighter touch.
I've been curious about the five string version of that bass. If I was just getting into bass, I'd definitely check em out.
