Powered and Active mean the same thing.
I went to Circuit City today looking for a poperwul 1000W HTiB and I found the new Sony HT-6900DP. Now, I've read somewhere to make sure the sub is "POWERED", because most HTiB don't have that kind of subs. Well, the sub wasn't powered, it said on the tag that it was "Active", can anyone tell me the differences between a "Ppwered sub" and an "Active one?" Pros and Cons... anyone?
(Note, I tried the sub and it sounded pretty cool, really deep 160W bass, so I was wondering if it was powered it'd be different.
