Active Speakers

An active speaker means that the power amplifier is built into the speaker rather than the older traditional way of using separate power amplifiers which means you carry more equipment in your van or car and the power amplifiers were usually exceptionally heavy. Because active speakers have the built in power amplifier it means the speaker and amp are matched perfectly as mismatching can seriously damage your pa system and also it means less lifting and set up time at gigs and rehearsals.
