Buy Active Speakers

Shopping for powered PA speakers can be a tall order in some cases, so we made this process easier than ever for our customers. For example, some speakers are mountable to speaker stands with a top hat and others are not. Lots of extra information detailing the speaker in question is found below the pictures on the respective product page.

As active speakers feature a built-in amplifier unit to draw power, you can save yourself the expense of needing a separate, standalone power amplifier. The biggest plus from a technical perspective is that you are ensured the built-in amplifier can deliver the full capabilities of the speaker system in question, generating the appropriate power relative to the size of the speaker driver and crossover network. This will almost guarantee you are getting the best quality signal level possible for the dynamic range of the speaker.

Active systems can be connected directly to an audio mixer and many also feature direct microphone inputs and mix controls so each signal can be used independently. Some have a guitar input for compatible instruments too, this is very helpful for singer/songwriter-type performers or duos. Some models also feature Bluetooth connectivity which allows you to wirelessly play your own music through the active speaker via a smart device.

Bluetooth Active PA Speakers

Bluetooth-powered PA speakers offers convenience and an easy solution for playing your music at volume using existing audio files or directly from a streaming service. You're almost certain to find the best budget active PA speakers here, our ever-popular Vonyx and Fenton speaker systems being the perfect choice for beginner DJs and parties. Features include Bluetooth and in some cases a built-in LED light show that can react to the tempo of your music, flashing in time with rhythms.

You can daisy chain signal passthrough to add additional speaker units to your setup line should you wish. You can also add an active subwoofer to the line if required to handle low-end frequencies, this allows the use of smaller sized main speakers as they won't be handling the heavier bass signal. The main speakers then effectively only deal with mid and high frequencies, taking the stress off of the inbuilt amplifier from needing to supply the higher current required for bass reproduction.


As mentioned, Active Systems cut the need for an external amplifier out of the equation and the powerful audio devices are great for a wide variety of functions and events. Active cabinets link directly to a mixing console and as a result, are now the most popular speakers on the market thanks to the simplicity of their plug and play design.

Powered PA speakers are a popular choice of speakers for mobile DJs, event hosts and functions. Built-in amplification allows the speaker to be connected to mixers and sound sources such as DJ Controllers directly, the speaker is a diverse and versatile piece of audio equipment. We stock 8, 10, 12 and 15 inch Bluetooth Active Speakers in a whole range of different styles for your consideration.

A 12-inch active system gives you a consistent and reliable sound for all situations, from mobile DJ work, to live music and front of house installations, they excel at producing a clean and focussed sound. 15-inch speakers are the most popular size of speaker driver for both professional working DJs and live bands. A 15-inch speaker system provides a deep bass response and clear midrange with the ability to handle much higher volume levels.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are active PA speakers?

Active PA speakers contain a built-in amplifier, which means you do not need an external amplifier to provide power. Instead, they can be plugged in directly to the mains for simple plug-and-play use.

In addition, they include in-built volume, and equalisation controls, and often have useful features such as mic and line inputs, Bluetooth connectivity and an MP3 player.

Active PA speakers are widely used and are popular with DJs, event hosts and at a variety of functions.

We provide a selection of high-quality active speakers, in various sizes and power ratings to suit your needs.

What are the advantages of active PA systems?

As a result, the system takes up less space on your stage and in your vehicle, perfect for mobile DJs and performers.

In addition, active PA systems provide an excellent audio output as the drivers, crossover and amplifier are designed to work together, and the ideal amount of power will be generated.

How do you set up powered PA speakers?

Powered PA speakers are designed to be simple and quick to set-up, for plug-and-play use.

As no separate amplifier is needed, active speakers just need to connect to a mains power supply with the provided power cable, and they will be ready for use.

Active speakers can also easily be connected to a mixer or DJ controller if desired.

What types of active PA speakers are available?

A range of speaker sizes are available, with common sizes including 8, 10, 12, and 15 inches. Larger speakers, such as our 15-inch active speakers typically provide a powerful performance, suiting larger venues.

Each active speaker will have an in-built crossover network and a 2-way or 3-way system, but our high-end speakers also have a bi-amp configuration, providing an active crossover for the best possible sound.

In addition, the in-built features will differ, with popular functions including; microphone inputs, mix controls, guitar input, Bluetooth technology, an integrated MP3 player, and an eye-catching built-in LED light show.

Do you need an amplifier with an active loudspeaker?

No, a separate amplifier is not needed with an active loudspeaker. This is because an active speaker includes an integrated amplifier which powers the speaker.

Therefore, you just need to plug the active loudspeaker into a mains power supply and it is ready to go.

In comparison, a passive speaker would require a connection to an external amplifier.

What is the best active PA system?

The best active PA system for you will depend on your desired usage, and the power and features needed.

The size of speakers ranges considerably, usually starting at 8 inches and going up to 15 to suit different sized venues.

Can powered PA speakers be connected together?

Yes, powered PA speakers can be connected together if they have a line out, or multiple active speakers can be connected to a mixer.

Each speaker would be individually powered by its own inbuilt amplifier. We have a range of popular pairs of active speakers that are ideal when one speaker would not provide enough power.

What extras do I need with active PA speakers?

The extras that you need with your active PA speakers will depend on your desired usage.

Popular extra equipment includes speaker stands, which raise the speakers to an optimal height for the best audio output.>

Microphones are also important if you will be making announcements, speeches or singing. You may additionally wish to consider a subwoofer to boost low frequencies and add depth to your sound.

For instance, 15-inch active speakers are popular with professional DJs and working bands. Whereas, compact 10-inch speakers would be great for background music or karaoke purposes in a smaller setting.

If you would like to discuss the best size speakers for your needs, please get in touch with our helpful team.

Are active PA speakers better than passive speakers?

Active and passive PA speakers are both capable of producing high-quality sound. However, active PA speakers are increasingly seen as preferable because they do not require an external amplifier.

This makes the set-up process simpler and less equipment is needed. The integrated amplifier also guarantees that the right amount of power is generated for an optimal performance.

In comparison, a passive speaker needs to connect to a standalone amplifier which should have a similar power and impedance rating.

A positive of passive speakers is they are typically cheaper and may be preferable if power outlets are limited, as they just need to connect to an amplifier with a speaker cable.

Should I get Passive or Active Speakers?

Active units are far more common nowadays due to their simplicity of use, while an argument could be made for passive speakers they are becoming more and more home-focused.

Active systems have their own amplifier and passive systems need an external amplifier to use them properly, which is sold separately.

If offered the choice between the two most knowledgeable audiophiles will appreciate the active speaker a little more.

Passive speakers are usually sold in pairs with an amplifier packaged in as a PA kit, this will give you some connection options.

However this will also take up extra space in both your vehicle and on stage, this portability is why active systems are so popular amongst working professionals.

Take a look through our selection of complete PA systems and you can see all of the recommended items to enhance your final sound outputs.

In conclusion, it is clear to see why powered speakers are a frequent choice in the industry, combining simplicity with great results.
