Ghosting does not work in the same way with passive systems than active systems.
With passive systems you can use any type of projector you want, ghosting is tied to the filter system you use.
I have a dual projectors 3D setup. I have tried both polarized filters and the Omega filters.
Each has advantages and drawbacks.
The Omega filters do have an exceptionally low ghosting
When you put the glasses on, the ghosting is zero. (yes, no joke)
The issue with Omega is colour accuracy. The colour accuracy depends on the output light spectrum of the lamp and projector. Omega requires a projector with an light spectrum as wide and as smooth as possible.
There are 2 versions of the filters designed for Xenon lamp single chip DLP projectors or Xenon lamp LCOS projectors. The further from these configurations your projectors are, the less accurate the colours become. And then each individual projector make and model has some particularities that will affect the colour and are not documented by the manufacturer or reviewing sites (basically you have to try it to know whether if works well or not)
If you go to the Omega Optical thread you'll see people reporting on how well the system works for their particular projector.
My projectors are Epson 3LCD EH TW3500, the european version of the Home Cinema 8100, colour is not very good with Omega filters. So I switch back to polarized most of the time. (because I already have a polarized system and silverscreen)
From what we've learned so far : consumer DLPs have wider and more balanced light spectrums and usually work better with Omega.
