Default Active or Passive?

Hey guys. I’m designing a new setup and I really want to use an audio control dsp/amp for my front components and rear coaxials. My original plan was to run a D-6.1200 and run active to front components. But I’ve realized I can run a D-4.800 and run passive to the components and save $400. Is active worth $400? Or is it basically the same either way?

Active with the right DSP and a good tune is worth way more than $400... But I don't know anything about the Audio Control unit.

I would skip the rear coaxs and put that money toward the front equipment.

If the speakers are close together and you are not running super load, then the passives should be just dandy.

Whether you some EQ in a head unit may also be a factor.
