Up to only a few years ago, passive studio monitors were the standard in every professional recording studio. Passive studio monitors are considered to provide superior performance than their active counterpart. The power amp is separate so it doesn't interfere with the driver magnets. Additionally, reduced heat and mass doesn't alter the sonic characteristics of the speaker enclosure.
It is always better to test out your mix on multiple sets of studio monitors, and the more sets of monitors you have available, the better your mix will translate to other listening environments on the first pass. Vintage King offers a wide variety of speaker sizes and driver configurations that can fit any studios needs.
Passive Studio Monitors tend to provide the largest low-frequency drivers. Brands like Augspurger offer bass drivers up to 15”, sometimes with two to four per side. Having this much push from the low-end will surely make you “feel the music”, making them the ideal choice for mixing pop music, Rap, Hip Hop, EDM, or Dance tracks. Combined with a precision high-frequency driver and a finely tuned crossover, you will surely impress any client or producer who walks in your room.
Make sure you pair your passive studio monitors with the right power amp. Vintage King offers a variety of amps to fit any speaker configuration.
