Active Monitor

A studio loudspeaker that features built-in active electronics, such as filtering, EQ, amplification, and crossover. Active monitors afford the manufacturer the advantage of being able to optimize all of the system’s components for best performance and to match the components to one another. The big advantage of active monitors for users is the convenience; one power cable and one audio cable are all that is required to use all the components contained in the monitor (as opposed to a system where the amps, crossovers, EQs, etc., are all in separate boxes).
