Active monitors have an amplifier built in, meaning the amp is perfectly matched to the speakers and you don’t need extra cabling to connect one to the other. Because they have an amp built in, they need to be powered and generally feature built in volume controls. Passive monitors need to be driven by an amp and are consequently far less popular.
