What does, " Passive model with a network" mean

Looking at these: https://jblpro.com/en-asia/products/4722-4722n


Confused what this means, "4722 is available as a Passive model with a network
(4722N) or the Bi-amp Ready 4722"


passive model with a network vs bi-amp ready?

good speaker brands: Revel, Power Sound Audio (PSA), Ascend, KEF, Emotiva, JBL, Tekton, SVS, Definitive Technoogy (DefTech), Paradigm, MartinLogan, Bowers & Logan, Klipsch (safe V shaped audio).

good subwoofer brands:
Rythmiks, HSU, SVS, PSA, Outlaw

Same box and drivers.
4722 has no crossover network and requires external active crossover and two power amps.
4722N adds a passive crossover network. Requires only one power amp.

Passive with network means it has a crossover, so just hook up the speaker wires like a pair of normal home speakers.
