What is the difference between passive speakers and active speakers?
A speaker is a device that converts an audio signal into sound. In general, it means that the main body of the speaker or the subwoofer box has its own power amplifier. After the audio signal is amplified, the sound is played back by the speaker itself, making the sound louder. There are two types of speakers commonly found on the market: passive speakers and powered speakers. What are their advantages? How to buy it? Next, let's learn from Huizhou Kingleon Technology Co., Ltd.
Passive speakers, also known as passive speakers, do not have any amplifier circuits inside, but they usually have a crossover system and an impedance compensation circuit. Need to connect the power amplifier to use, but the type of speaker is much more than the active speaker, in addition to the typical bookshelf, there are floor boxes, satellite boxes and now more popular custom-installed speakers, invisible speakers.
The advantage of the passive speaker is that it does not need an external power supply, it can be directly connected to the amplifier, the tuning is flexible, and it can be widely applied. The amplifier and the wire can be adjusted according to the requirements to determine the sound effect, which has stronger playability and can be more Good to build a multi-channel sound system. The disadvantage is that passive speakers are much more complicated than active speakers. Especially for users who want to play well, they need to have more professional knowledge reserves and better hands-on ability. Or different effects, you need to have more audio and video knowledge. In addition, the average passive speaker volume will be larger than the active speaker, so the space required will be relatively large. However, the main speakers of HUIZHOU KINGLEON TECHNOLOGY CO., LTD are mini models, like the N-95 and N-96, which take up less space than ordinary passive speakers.
Active speakers, also known as active speakers, usually refer to speakers with an electronic crossover system and a power amplifier. Active speakers usually only need to be connected to the power supply and connected to the signal source to sound, no need to add additional amplifiers. Most of the current monitor speakers or engineering speakers and the speakers used in the dance hall are active speakers, as well as some Desktop speakers, Bluetooth speakers and smart speakers, which are basically active speakers.
The advantage of active speakers is that they come with a power amplifier, no need to add additional amplifiers, easy to use, easy to use. Simply connect to the signal source and use it without tangling or considering power size and impedance matching. There is also a built-in electronic crossover system and decoding system to reduce the connection of wires, which can better restore the replay of sound, with less distortion and stable playback, without the influence of wires, power amplifiers, and other factors. The disadvantage is that the active speakers are generally bookshelf boxes, and most of them can only be built into the 2.0 system. It is difficult to build a multi-channel system, and the range of use is relatively narrow. Of course, with the upgrade of technology, the application of active speakers is no longer limited to the establishment of 2.0 systems, and more and more to multi-channel systems.
As for how to purchase, you can consider the application scenario, the required effect, and the budget. If you only need to use it as a computer speaker, it is of course more suitable to purchase active speakers. If it is a living room or a separate audio-visual room, although both active and passive can be chosen, in terms of effect, it is definitely more suitable to choose passive speakers. Or don't be afraid of tossing, and want to try different sound effects, or need to match with different styles of equipment, it is definitely a passive speaker; if you don't like tossing, active speakers can be in one step, naturally preferred active speakers. . From the budget point of view, if you are rich, you are not afraid to toss, you still have to choose passive speakers.
