Pro Audio Speakers
Pro audio speakers can be used in large installations or as mobile PA systems for live bands and DJs. A full range system can be achieved with the inclusion of subwoofers. A simple portable system including 2 x 18"" active subwoofers and 2 x 12"" active tops are easily transported for small to medium sized venues.
Active PA speakers
Active PA speakers, also known as powered speakers are the PA speaker industry favourites and have vastly overtaken the sales of traditional passive speaker rigs. It's no surprise, as they offer the convenience of onboard amplification, removing the need for a seperate power amplifier, and also the huge benefit of each speaker having its own dedicated power supply which greatly enhances bass response.
Benefits of active speakers are simple connections, built in features such as bluetooth audio and direct microphone and instrument inputs, with no worries about impedance mismatches between amp and speakers, and the inbuilt amplifier being exactly the right power output to get the very best from the speaker drivers.
Active Speaker DSP
Often with other onboard features like digital DSP tone shaping, input level compression and active digital crossovers, modern active speakers give you access to functionality that is not available using the traditional power amp and passive speaker setup without adding on expensive external digital processors and speaker management units.
Perfect for mobile Dj work, live music bands, social clubs, indoor and outdoor events and stage performances, the modern active speaker system is the professionals choice.
Passive PA speakers
Passive PA speakers can be used for large point source installations such as in nightclubs and live music venues. Using separate amplifiers and DSP units from the control point, large systems can be installed with simple speaker cable runs.
Passive PA speaker systems can also be used as a touring PA rig, many touring theatre bands and shows will utilize a passive PA system.
