Active Near Field Monitors and Passive ones

Is there a large noticeable different between Active Near Field Monitors and Passive ones . I love mixing loud with screaming guitar and drums for up to 8hrs nonstop. My 150 watt 8" powered near fields are on there last leg .

Here for the gear

You might not want to mix loud for 8 hours to begin with, your ears and your mixes (therefore your clients) will thank you.

Taking a bunch of MMJ breaks is great anyway.

Lives for gear
Depends on the amp you use with the passives.
