whats the difference? i mean i know active are hooked up to a battery...but why is the battery there....whats it do really?
active pickups have more output, hotter, i guess in ways, more power therefore it needs more power!, distorts easier,

passive sound more vintage, lower output, blah blah

there is a a thread on this, search it up for more info.
