Active PA speakers are self powered and feature built-in amplifiers. The don't require external amps and are convenient, portable and lightweight. Alto Professional and Wharfedale Pro make cost effective, high performance active speakers.

 

Active PA speakers are self powered and feature built-in amplifiers, and they can connected to a pre-amplifier unit using a single low ling cable. The amount of amplifiers that power the drivers on the speakers can vary, so be wary to take that into consideration when purchasing. Although this doesn’t mean that an active speaker cannot comprise amplifiers and cross-over components outside of the enclosure, which will allow you to fill a larger space.

 

There are several factors that you need to take in account if you decide to purchase an active speaker over a passive one; these are dictated by your requirements and expertise. Therefore an active speaker is a lot easier to start using for somebody who doesn’t have a lot of experience with the equipment; although this is not to say someone that does have the experience should dismiss them outright. Active PA speakers are suitable for both indoor and outdoor use, so therefore you are going to be able to use them to their potential at any venue.

 

An active pa speaker does ten to be slightly more expensive as passive pa speaker, although this is not to say that there is a vast difference, and you need to consider that it does contain more components, for example the built in amplifier, which can support and external amplifier and cross over components. It will not offer the same scalability as a passive speaker and the components cannot be individually replaced, but the components are all designed to work well in unison together. Active PA speakers have the advantage of being lightweight and portable as well, which makes them a lot more convenient.

 

Energy efficiency is greater for active speakers, so if the venue dictates it, or it is a personal preference that you are as energy conscious as you can be, then an active speaker is for you. As already mentioned, these are easier to use than passive speakers, as it is not a complex set up. While running parallel to this, due to the less complex set up, it is easier to get a good sound out of active speakers, as you do not need any expertise in tuning a system. The connections are also a lot simpler, due to the fact that it is a direct connection from the controller to the speaker.

 

So here at DJ tech direct we have only the top brands in speakers that you need, such as Alto Professional and Wharfedale Pro who make cost effective, high performance active speakers.
