    Active vs Passive?

    Hi guys, great forum. I'm just starting out on the recording adventure and need to address the issue of studio speakers. Can anyone advise me on the difference between active and passive speakers?

    I'm recording on a pc using Cubase/Reason and a Kerzweil K2000.

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Chris.

    Welcome to the Media College cristophles,

    Very simple, passive speakers need an amplifier for them to be useful, while active speakers have a built-in amplifier that requires electrical power and an audio signal.

    Best Regards.
