    You control the individual crossover points for each speaker in your car and you have to power each speaker individually

    with a passive setup, a passive crossover controls the crossover points and power is sent to the crossover and split evenly among the drivers

    so how exactly do i control / set these points?

    it is preferred to get an HU to already has an active crossover built in. that will give you the ability to control everything from your driver seat. also give this a read, http://www.caraudio.com/forum/showthread.php?t=146726.
