Which Car Audio Crossover is BEST for YOU? Passive vs Active Crossovers EXPLAINED!

In order to properly separate the frequencies of sound being sent to each speaker in an aftermarket car audio system we need to use a crossover. But the question becomes, should we use an active crossover that limits signal before the amplifier output, or should we use a passive crossover that is wired between the amplifier and the speakers/subwoofers? Let's discuss which is better, passive or active crossovers!
