Two things,

1) Thanks for posting the pic. When you said greyed out, I though you meant this:

2) With the clip selected, open the inspector (command-4) and then click the audio tab. Turn the volume up from minus infinity to 0 and the active waveforms should reappear.

OK, three things.

3) Those less opaque waveforms are called reference waveforms. There's a preference to turn them on or off (Preferences > Editing > Audio, Show reference waveforms). Since the fully opaque or active waveforms are dynamic in fcpx (meaning, the waveforms adjust to volume of filter changes so you can see what's happening to the audio as you process it) those reference waveforms are handy to show you that there is audio to begin with, and what the audio looks like as a fully expressed waveform.
