I'm assuming you got the pedal version? (I don't recall the rack version having such a switch)... Given this:

would i use the active setting

Yes, you probably should. Exciter's use complex formulas and setups to alter the signal (typically); switching it from active/passive probably is probably important for it to give you the "right" output.


it didnt come with a power supply

The notation on the back of the pedal is not that great...

But it shows +/-... which leads me to believe that the outside is positive, and the inside (pointy tip) is negative. (it possible they mean "plus or minus", but it doesn't seem likely given the context)


were in the chain would it go

I would put it at the end of the chain (or near so). Experiment yourself to see what you like best. But typically, "excitement" is like an end-effect. You want to excite your overall end sound (after effects/distortion/etc).
