From a quick test, it looks like the file is:
/var/lib/asterisk/sounds/agent-pass.<pcm_mode>

Instructions for recording your own prompts are given here:

I generally use one of the free audio recording utilities to re-record prompts, then copy them to Asterisk using WinSCP. This sitehas some very good audio utilities:
