I think this nailed my feelings on the subject.
Active speakers and DSP can nail frequency response. Ruler flat.
But just based on being active and using DSP, does not address the type of subtleties that speakers and various amp combos are capable of.
And this is why they are feeling and not reality or informed opinion.
When you talk about rudimentary things like crossovers, then you are already 5 years behind, and certainly not looking to the future.
"There are no drivers made, that do not have 'problem' frequencies within their passband, that need to be compensated for.
And passive speakers will never be able to compensate for this. Active will.
