Passive DJ Speakers

Passive DJ speakers are a great choice for the working DJ for hire, when combined with an external power amplifier these speaker units help to disperse sound evenly. Passive speakers are often preferred by DJs as they have much more flexibility of customisation and thus are great value for money without the onboard tech limitations of an active unit.

Passive disco speakers such as the units featured here are easy to transport between venues due to their carry handles and in some cases wheels. Passive DJ speakers will not work on their own, please note that an external amplifier purchase is necessary to use these speakers effectively. The speakers that are larger in size (12-inch to 15-inch) are suitable for small to medium-sized live music venues and can be set up for use in minutes.

Buy Passive DJ Speakers

The passive DJ speakers available are built from strong, robust material and with a protective metal grille in front of the main speaker driver. This metal grille shields the woofer from potential accidents all while maintaining a sleek and stylish finish for the speaker itself. Many working DJs like to save space when on the job, we stock mixer-amplifiers elsewhere in the store which can be used to power your passive disco speakers and also fine-tune your final sound output.

This saves bringing along a mixer and amplifier separately, DJs already have a huge amount of gear to move around in their vehicles so reducing the workload is appreciated by many professionals. Some speakers are covered in a carpeted material, protecting the cabinet from accidental scuffs and scrapes that may occur during normal transit. Each speaker model has a unique set of capabilities, be sure to look at the item specifications upon the respective item pages for more details.

Passive Disco Speakers

Passive disco speakers remain an effective choice for the working DJ, even despite their active counterparts generally being a lot more popular in recent years. Often used in nightclubs and other nightlife hotspots, these speakers are often mounted to the walls when inside this type of venue. As mentioned, the ways you can utilise passive DJ speakers are numerous, hence their versatility during public usage.

A few amps nowadays have the basic 3 frequency bands connected to dials built into the front surface, allowing users to alter their sounds bass, middle and treble levels respectively. While not as involved as a fully-fledged mixer-amplifier, this is another reason why professionals prefer to use a passive system/power amplifier combination. Granting themselves full control of both the music selected and how well it will be heard by an audience.

Any DJ can customise, upgrade and improve their existing speakers by doing a little bit of DIY with a few new speaker components. Either repairing or replacing old components or beginning a full sound speaker home build, a passive system does not have inner amplifiers and other enclosed systems that could be knocked about during DIY. This makes these speakers modular and it is this freedom that sets it apart from the convenience of an active system.

Frequently Asked Questions

What Is A Passive DJ Speaker?

Passive speakers are a versatile and popular choice amongst working DJs, producing high-quality sound reproduction. These speakers are not powered, which means they need to connect to an external amplifier with a speaker wire, and will not work on their own. They draw power from the amplifier, meaning they do not need to be connected to a mains power supply.

How Do You Connect A Passive DJ Speaker?

A passive DJ speaker needs to connect to a compatible amplifier with a speaker wire to draw power. The speaker therefore does not need to be connected to a mains power supply directly. The amplifier then connects to your DJ mixer/controller, and your system is ready to use. Some DJs choose to purchase a mixer-amplifier which can both power the speakers and control the sound output, rather than getting each separately. This can save space and provide an easier set-up.

What Is The Difference Between Passive And Active DJ Speakers?

The main difference between passive and active DJ speakers is that passive speakers require an amplifier to work, or they need to connect to a suitable active speaker. In comparison, an active speaker contains an in-built amplifier, so can connect straight to the mixer/controller. This difference also means that active speakers need to connect directly to the mains power supply, whereas passive speakers do not. Passive speakers just require a speaker wire to connect to an amplifier or active speaker. We provide a range of active/passive speaker pairs, which combine the benefits of both, and mean the passive unit can connect to the active unit, without the need for a separate amplifier.

Can A Passive Speaker Be Powered By An Active Speaker?

Yes, a passive speaker can be powered by a suitable active speaker. The active speaker will need to have an output, and the speakers should be the same type to guarantee they are compatible. Once the passive and active speaker are connected with a speaker wire, the active speaker will power the passive unit. We provide a popular range of speaker pairs that include an active and passive speaker, which connect together easily for a powerful output.

What Are The Benefits Of Passive DJ Speakers?

Passive DJ speakers have several benefits. Firstly they tend to be significantly cheaper than active speakers, however you will need to factor in the extra cost of an amplifier. Another benefit is that passive speakers do not need to be plugged into the mains, they just need to connect to an amplifier with a speaker wire. This means they do not need to be close to a mains power source, which can make placement easier, without having to run long extensions. This is perfect for outdoor events and large indoor spaces. Passive speakers also tend to be lighter weight than active speakers, making transport and mounting easier.

Do I Need An Amplifier For Passive Speakers?

Yes, an amplifier is needed to power passive speakers, otherwise the speakers will not work. Passive speakers can easily be connected to a suitable amplifier with speaker wires. Just ensure that your amplifier matches the speakers in terms of power and impedance to avoid damage to your equipment. This can be checked on the product specifications and our Electromarket team is happy to advise. It is also possible to connect a passive speaker to an active speaker, rather than to an amplifier, if purchased as a compatible pair.

What Are The Best Passive DJ Speakers?

The best passive DJ speakers will depend on your requirements, for instance; size, power and usage. Each speaker has different specifications, and will suit alternative needs. For instance a bedroom DJ would suit a compact pair of 250W speakers with a 2-way system, while a professional may choose a larger pair with 1000 watts of max power and a 3-way system. We provide a range of high-quality passive DJ speakers, featuring a robust and easy to transport design. Please contact our Electromarket team who will help you find the best passive speakers for your needs.

What Types Of Passive DJ Speakers Are Available?

There are many types of passive DJ speaker available, each differing in size and power. Popular sizes of passive speaker range between 6 inches up to 15 inch main woofers, with max output power often varying between 100W to 1500W. Passive speakers usually have an inbuilt crossover network, with some featuring a two-way design with a separate woofer and tweeter. While others have a 3-way design, with a woofer, tweeter and midrange driver system for an enhanced output.
