What is a passive speaker?
A Passive speaker is a speaker that requires power from an external amplifier to produce the sound. Active speakers have an amplifier built into them, rather than passive speakers don’t.
Passive speakers work by converting the electrical signal into sound waves using drivers, crossovers and the amplifier to create the sound together.
The cabinet is designed to enhance the sound quality of the speaker but protect it from damage. The size and shape of the speaker, and also the speaker type of material used can affect the sound of the speaker. A Wooden cabinet will give off a warmer nicer sound than a traditional plastic cabinet.
Why use a Passive Speaker?
A Passive loudspeakers are known for their high-quality sound because they rely on an external amplifier to send the signal and to power the speakers themselves, Because of this it's easy to add more speakers to your setup if required.
