I have some active speakers. Some have failed in around 5 years. I come from an era where speakers and amps lasted 20-30 years and were mostly serviceable. I am not a fan of one stop solutions. They tend to be more disposable than the alternative. \n\nElectronics in a high vibration environment is a concern. It's just an unnecessary possibility of environmental failure in exchange for. . . convenience? Fine for people with the mentality and wherewithal to upgrade cars and such every couple years, but this would always be in the back of my mind as a source of premature failure. If they want to include specific amplification, it should be as a separate module, especially with the more powerful speakers that include any kind of bass.
