ACTIVE SPEAKERS



The speaker shown was a three way system from the mid 90's published in EW&WW. Unfortunately, due to the realities of the market place the drivers used here are no longer available. However work is in hand on two new active speaker designs which, like the unit shown, will use the electronics to vastly improve the performance of the system. Active speaker systems are greatly superior to passive designs. Drive unit integration is as perfect as possible. If the bass unit amp were to clip the tweeter is isolated from the problem. The greatest advantage of the system is the way in which the frequency response can be manipulated easily to obtain a flatter response than is possible passively.
