Active Speakers and Powered Speakers are very similar, they incorporate an amplifier inside a conventional speaker, this means that neither require an additional amplifer. The fact that they require mains power does mean they should not be used outdoors without adequate planning for bad weather.

Powered Speakers

A powered speaker has a connection for mains power and usually a balanced input for an audio signal from an audio source

Active Speakers

Active speakers include a mixer and sometimes DSP (Digital Signal Processing), this means that they can take multiple inputs and combine them without a mixer. DSP units have presets that can be used to tune the sound characteristics of the speaker for specific applications.

Active Speaker System

A complete Active speaker will include a combination of full range speakers and subwoofers designed to complement each others audio characteristics. There will be at least one DSP equipped amplifer with presets that can be used to tune the sound characteristics of the speaker system for specific applications.
