basically an active setup is that you use an active crossover to set your crossover pts and slopes. so you have complete control on what speaker sees what frequency while a passive setup is where the company that you bought your components off of has already built a crossover for that component set. look up any component set and should come with their own passive crossovers. do a search on active crossovers and passive crossovers.
