ok ill help Active in my opinion sounds better than passive monitors but if you get passive monitors you will need something to power them so in the long run it would be cheaper to invest in some active monitors. why do you feel though that you need monitors? is it for recording or for live sound?

I'm assuming by monitors you mean foldbacks, but I'm not really sure. However I'd imagine that the difference is the same as the difference between active and passive pickups.

Also this should probably go in gear questions, not MT.
