What you should look for in a DJ Speaker
Passive vs. Active Speakers
The first thing to understand about speakers is that not all speakers are the same. A mobile DJs for example can be DJing an event with less than 50 people to over 1000 people and it is vital how the sound is processed by loud speakers to meet the DJs audience. There are major differences between passive and active speakers, here’s what you need to know.
Passive speakers can be just as powerful as active speakers, this depends on which speakers a DJ prefers to invest in. The main difference in passive speakers is they need an amplifier in order to hear sound. The DJ will need to buy an amplifier for every pair of passive speakers they want to use.
DJs don’t need to worry about an amplifier as active speakers are powered. The volume is controlled on each speaker and each speaker connects directly into the mixer. A mixer, XLR cables, and the speaker is all you need. Powered speakers are really an all in one solution.
Whichever speakers you pick, passive or active it really doesn’t matter. Just think about the audience your performing too and be wary of ‘cheap’ speakers, as they can cost you more in the long run. With all that said here is are list of the Best DJ speakers we would recommend.
