It depends on the person. Some love the EBMM bucker roar, others (ala me) like the smooth jazz slap, others even like the p-bass slap. It's all preference. Active vs. passive isn't a huge factor but I do think actives get a little more punch.

well my slapping band mate(AMAZING SLAPPER!) has a jazz bass but he dosent really know anything about guitars and he wishes he had a bass just like flea's (musicman stingray) and he always b!tching about it....he says the active ibanez in our local store(preety cheap) sounds better to him than the J bass....so he wants an active bass but only got the j bass like a year ago.

what will you suggest him to save up for?

Some of the Ibanezes have grooves in the body below the G and D strings making popping a lot easier, if you want to go for simplicity.
