    You have crossovers but they are before the amp (or in the amp).

    For running active you will need a device (headunit, amp, or processor) where you can Actively change and shape the crossovers. For example I use an Alpine 9887 headunit to run my components active.

    Don't run active with scissors, run passive with them instead.

    Re: running active?

    Baically active is using a seperate amp for each - high, mid, low.
    Passive is using a external crossover that you don't have much control over, and the setup would be more of a front, rear, sub.

    With active, you will have a different amp for each set up, one for tweets/horns, one for mid drivers, and one or two for subs. and you can actively control which frequencies are sent to each of those amps.

    I am running active with one amp

    You probably meant a separate channel of amplification
