The main use of a PA amplifier is to power the speakers and also to send audio signals to them. You will find a few different input options on our amplifiers, for example, RCA or phono, 6.3mm jack, 3.5mm jack, USB/SD card and Bluetooth. This is helpful, as having these input options can eliminate the need for an audio mixer, providing you are only going to be connecting one device to the system.

Using a suitable power amplifier with your passive speakers is essential to avoid any damage to the speakers and also to get the full power potential of the speakers utilised. If you use an amplifier with a much lower wattage rating or output than the speakers, the speakers won't be at their full potential in terms of both volume and sound quality. This is why it is usually better to have an amplifier with a higher wattage potential.

Speakers and amplifiers will have different connection points, such as bare wire terminals, 6.3mm jack connectors and Speakon connectors. Getting the correct speaker cables to connect passive speakers with an amplifier can be a struggle. In our PA speakers and amp kits that we have put together, they will all include the necessary cables for the included speakers and amplifier, making it simple to have an up-and-running system straight away.

What are they?

Passive speaker kits are speaker kits that include all the components needed for a passive speaker system. These kits typically include speakers, amplifiers, stands, and speaker bags.

The speaker drivers are the components that actually produce the sound, and the crossover network is responsible for dividing the audio signal into different frequency ranges and directing those signals to the appropriate driver. The cabinets are designed to house the drivers and help control their sound output.

Passive speakers are popular because they offer more flexibility than their active counterparts, as they can be used with a wider range of amplifiers and receivers, allowing users to mix and match components to create a system that fits their specific needs.

They also are often more affordable than active speakers, as they don't include built-in amplifiers or other electronics, making them a more affordable option for those on a budget.

How do passive speaker kits function?

Passive speaker systems are designed to receive an audio signal from an external amplifier or receiver. This audio signal is sent as an electrical current to the speaker system. Once the audio signal reaches the speaker system, it is processed through a crossover network that is designed to split the signal into different frequency ranges.

The crossover network ensures that each driver in the speaker system receives the appropriate range of frequencies that it is designed to handle. The speaker drivers include woofers, tweeters, and mid-range drivers, and each is responsible for reproducing bass, treble, and mid respectively.

As the drivers vibrate in response to the electrical signal, they create sound waves that are amplified by the speaker's enclosure and radiated into the surrounding environment. The resulting acoustic output produces the sound that is heard by the listener.

Passive speaker systems require an external amplifier or receiver to power the speakers. This means that the speaker system does not have any built-in electronics or amplifiers. The advantage of this is that the speaker system can be more easily upgraded or modified over time, as individual components can be replaced as needed without having to replace the entire system. This makes passive speaker systems a flexible and versatile option for audiophiles and music lovers who want to build a high-quality audio system that can be customised to their specific needs.

What are the advantages of passive speaker kits?

One advantage of passive speaker kits is the convenience of having all of the necessary components in one bundle, so that you don’t need to go and purchase each individual part separately. In addition to this, speaker kits with all the components are normally cheaper than if you were to buy each separate component, meaning you will save money if you bought it all together as a package.

Another advantage of passive PA systems is that passive PA speakers and/or amplifiers can be easily upgraded or replaced without having to replace the entire system. This saves time and money and means that passive speaker kits will last for longer, and should be viewed as a very good long-term speaker system option.

Additionally, passive speakers also have an element of simplicity to them. Passive speakers have a simple setup compared to more complex systems like multi-room or surround sound setups. A single passive speaker can be easily connected to an amplifier or receiver without requiring additional components or wiring. This simplicity makes passive speakers an excellent choice for individuals seeking high-quality audio without the hassle of a complicated setup.

PA speakers and amplifiers offer versatility when it comes to their usage. They can be used in various settings, such as party venues, stereo systems, and outdoor/live events. Additionally, passive speakers can be paired with any suitable amplifier that has various inputs and functions, making them adaptable to different needs.

What are the different types of passive speaker kits?

One type of passive speaker kit is DJ passive speaker kits. As referenced by its name, these systems are specifically designed for DJs who require powerful, high-quality sound reinforcement for their DJ sets. Additionally, passive DJ speakers tend to be better designed for portability, meaning that they sometimes include wheels or handles to help the user carry them around easier. These kits also offer more flexibility and customization options compared to active DJ speaker sets.

Another common feature of these DJ kits is their connectivity options. They can connect to any DJ devices, be it mixers or turntables, as well as devices such as laptops and other computers.

Passive party speaker kits are yet another example of a passive speaker package. Passive party speaker kits are designed to provide high-quality sound for parties and other events, and are typically bigger and more powerful than normal passive speaker kits because of their function. Sometimes, they also feature things like built-in lighting too.

In addition to this, they sometimes also include portability options just like the DJ speaker kit for easy transport, including features such as handles and wheels.

Another type of passive speaker kit is a passive PA system package. These systems are mainly used in live music performances as well as conferences and public speaking events. An advantage of passive PA systems is their ‘talk-over’ feature. This feature lowers the music or any other audio playing through the speakers when someone is speaking into the system’s microphone.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are passive speakers?

Passive speakers rely on external amplifiers or receivers to function, as they do not have internal amplifiers. These speakers receive audio signals from amplifiers or receivers to produce sound, as they are designed to use the power from the amplifier or receiver to drive the speaker driver(s).

Do passive speakers sound better than active speakers?

Active and passive speakers, whilst different in many ways, have the same quality of audio, meaning that there isn’t one type that is better than the other.

Active speakers have an in-built amplifier, which makes them a very popular and useful choice due to their versatility.

Passive speakers, on the other hand, need an external amplifier to work, which means that they are more versatile, since they can be used with any suitable amplifier to suit different requirements.

What does a passive speaker kit include?

Usually, a passive speaker kit includes some passive speakers and an amplifier with the relevant wires to connect them together. Some kits include more features, such as speaker stands and even speaker bags to help transport the kit around. This varies on each kit though, as not all packages include the same items for the same functions.

How do I choose an amplifier for passive speakers?

When selecting an amplifier for passive speakers, several key factors need to be considered. First, it's important to ensure that the power output of the amplifier matches the power handling capacity of the speakers. Choosing an amplifier that delivers enough power to drive the speakers to their full potential without causing damage is crucial.

Factors such as impedance and the user’s budget should also be considered.

Do passive speakers last longer than active speakers?

Despite the differences between powered and passive speakers, there is no clear winner or difference between the two when it comes to lifespan.

That being said, it could be argued that passive speakers could last slightly longer, since they have fewer components (built-in amplifier) that can malfunction.

What are amplifiers?

An amplifier is an electronic device that increases the power of a signal. With regards to sound systems, they are used to increase the power of an audio signal so that it can drive speakers and produce sound.

Amplifiers can come in a variety of configurations and power ratings, ranging from small headphone amplifiers to large power amplifiers used in concert sound systems. Some amplifiers are designed to be integrated into other equipment, such as a mixer or preamp, while others are standalone units.

What are the pros of passive speakers?

One unique advantage of passive speakers is their upgradability. If the amplifier being used for the passive speaker(s) needs upgrading or replacing, then it is easy to get a new amplifier instead of replacing all of the speakers too.

This is not the case with active speakers, since they have in-built amplifiers, so if the amplifier doesn’t work, they need to be fully replaced.

Can you power passive speakers without an amplifier?

Passive speakers require an amplifier or receiver to power them and produce sound. Without an amplifier or receiver, passive speakers cannot produce sound on their own. The amplifier or receiver provides the necessary power to drive the speaker drivers and produce sound.

There are some alternative methods to power passive speakers without an amplifier, such as using a powered mixer, but these methods still require some type of external amplification. It is important to ensure that the amplifier or other audio equipment you use is compatible with your speakers and can provide enough power to drive them effectively.

How do I know if my speakers are passive?

You will know if a speaker is passive if it doesn’t have an amplifier on the back of it. If it does, then it is an active speaker. Active speaker amplifiers often include AC or DC power inputs, built-in volume and tone controls, different types of connectors and sometimes even LCD display screens, which show information about the speaker’s settings and status.

For passive speakers to work, an external amplifier/receiver is required, and should be connected to them correctly.

Do speakers get worse with age?

Speakers can degrade over time due to several factors, including wear and tear, exposure to dust and moisture, and changes in the surrounding environment. However, the extent to which a speaker degrades over time depends on several factors, including the quality of construction, the usage, and the maintenance.
