Speakers & Monitors

There are two kinds of speakers: Active and Passive. Active PA speakers eliminate the need for external amplifiers, crossovers or signal processors thanks to its built-in amplifier and power supply. Plug it in straight to your mixer or other sound source and start performing. MusicMajlis is home to a large variety of active speakers from world-renown brands like Wharfedale, Alto Professional and QSC.


Passive PA speakers, unlike active speakers, do not have a built-in amplifier or use external power, and require an amplified signal to function. Therefore, they need a power amplifier in the signal chain to function effectively. Brands like Mackie, JBL and Behringer are available here at MusicMajlis for your passive speaker needs. 


What is the difference between active and passive speakers?
Active speakers eliminate the need for external amplifiers, crossovers or signal processors thanks to its built-in amplifier and power supply. They can be connected directly to the source of audio like a mixer.

 

Passive speakers, unlike active speakers, do not have a built-in amplifier or use external power, and require an amplified signal to function. Therefore, they need a power amplifier in the signal chain to function effectively.

 

Are bigger speakers always louder?
The size of the speaker and the woofer’s circumference primarily affects their frequency response. Going up in size increases the low end of the speaker and vice-versa. The factor that affects loudness is the wattage or maximum power output of the speaker. The higher the power rating, the higher the level of sound that can pass through it safely.
