Hi,

Could some one differentiate between active and passive crossovers.
Also give me names of some good amps which have active crossover.

An active X-over utilizes electronic circuitry activated by a (typically) AC voltage to accomplish the division of frequencies. Passive X-overs have no outside voltage applied to the components of the X-over, and, therefore, have only the voltage of the incoming signal present at the input of the network. Active X-overs can offer more precision and control of the actual function of the X-over. Amplifiers do not have X-overs.

Active X-overs are typically placed in front of the amplifer's input. Passive units are more commonly found after the amplifier's output stages.

You can have the phase shift problem with de active x-overs while the passive don't have this delay problem...
