Release time: 2021-10-03    Viewers: 29

Maybe when everyone buys speakers, they are the first to consider "passive" speakers, because they have a player, an Amp, and a complete system. But for those who are new to audio and start playing with "zero", in fact, "active" speakers have their advantages. Although "passive" speakers are the mainstream, there are many diehard fans of "active" speakers. What are the reasons? If you exclude the differences in materials and designs of high-end equipment, just "active" and "active" speakers. What are the advantages and disadvantages of "passive" design? Here is a brief analysis with you.

Active speaker speakers
"Active speaker" means that the speaker has a built-in crossover and amplifier circuit, and it can produce sound only by connecting to a power source and inputting a music signal. Many audio studio speakers and professional engineering speakers are active speaker speakers, but don’t think that Active Speaker is synonymous with your professionalism, because the common and commonly used computer speakers, Bluetooth speakers, etc. are actually Source" speakers.

advantage
No need for a rear stage, simple system: One of the significant advantages of active speakers is that they don’t need to be connected to a rear stage driver, and you can play songs by inputting audio. It is very suitable for friends who want a simpler sound system, just "player" is the same as " "Speakers" can already form a complete system.
Space saving: Active speakers do not need to be connected to an amplifier, so a lot of space for equipment can be saved, which is quite suitable for CAS systems or desktop audio systems that are quite popular in recent years.
Complete supporting, sound quality is "guaranteed": Since the speaker itself has a complete drive circuit and is equipped with decoding and partial sound, plus the digital interface input, the sound bottom of the active speaker speaker will be more "stable", not like nothing Source speaker speakers are more affected by wires and amplifiers.

shortcoming
Speakers need to adjust the volume independently: Some active speaker speakers are designed, and the output of the left and right channel speakers needs to be adjusted independently, so it will be a little troublesome to adjust the volume, and the left and right speakers need to be coordinated and then fine-tuned.
Need to connect the power cord and signal line: Although the active speaker speaker does not have an Amp, in addition to the signal line, each speaker needs to be connected to an additional power cord for power supply. If the speakers are placed farther away , The wire connection will be more troublesome.

Passive speaker speakers

The most common two-channel speakers are "passive" speakers. Contrary to "active" speakers, they don't have a built-in amplifier circuit and need to rely on the output of a rear stage or a combined machine to drive the sound. Compared with traditional active speaker speakers, most of them are bookshelf design, passive speaker speakers have a variety of styles, such as floor, bookshelves, satellites, and so on.

advantage
More flexibility in tuning: Due to the need to connect to the amplifier driver, the sound bottom of passive speakers will be greatly affected by the connected equipment and wires. Sometimes the same set of speakers will appear, It feels completely different when I hear it in my own place. However, in disguise, there is more flexibility in tuning. You can use the characteristics of signal cables and amplifiers to supplement or enhance the performance of the speakers.
Only need to connect the speaker cable: Although it needs to be connected to an amplifier, in contrast, passive speaker speakers do not need to be connected to an additional power cord, and only need to be connected to the amplifier with a signal cable, and the latter can be directly driven to produce sound.
Bi-Amp and Bi-Wire diversified connection combinations: Some passive speaker speakers can support Bi-Amp and Bi-Wire connection methods, and enhance the performance of the speaker through wire connection and additional post-levels.

shortcoming
Need a later stage promotion: Because passive speakers are too diverse, with different specifications, designs and materials, if you want to talk about a common disadvantage, it needs to be connected to an amplifier drive, requiring additional equipment and space.

Summarize
I have many friends who have switched to active speakers in recent years, mainly for convenience, which can simplify the desktop audio system and is suitable for connecting to a computer to play CAS. However, the combination and playfulness of passive speakers does have a unique appeal, and it is more suitable for traditional audio systems.
