What are the advantages of powered speakers?
Powered speakers are a more compact solution and setup is simplified
because there are fewer boxes, cable, and connections. The powered
speaker configuration allows us to include an integrated, state of the
art digital signal processor (DSP) that tunes and matches the amplifier
with the speaker's performance characteristics for optimized system
performance. This method of optimizing is very difficult and costly to
do in the classic amplifier/passive speaker model.
