WHAT IS A TRIGGER?
A "trigger" is a device, usually a transducer, that picks up the vibration from an instrument being struck and transmits that "information" or voltage to a sound generator. The sound generator then plays an analog (synthesizer) or digital (sample) voice. Any sound can be "triggered" from any instrument being struck.
WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES OF TRIGGERING ACOUSTIC DRUMS?
The advantages of triggering acoustic drums are a variety of high quality sounds available at the touch of a button that never go out of tune. This is also a very affordable way of recording or playing live as you do not need an expensive microphone for each drum and the corresponding expensive processing gear to get a good sound i.e., noise gates, compressors, parametric equalizers, multi-channel mixing board, and effects (reverb, etc.,).
WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES OF TRIGGERING WITH ELECTRONIC DRUMS AND CYMBALS?
The advantages of triggering with electronic drums and cymbals would be a variety of high quality sounds (exact acoustic instruments) available at the touch of a button that never go out of tune. This is also a very affordable way of recording or playing live as you do not need an expensive microphone for each drum and the corresponding expensive processing gear to get a good sound i.e., noise gates, compressors, parametric equalizers, multi-channel mixing board, and effects (reverb). Also, the low acoustic volume of electronic drums and cymbals allows the player to practice at times and in places that would otherwise be prohibitive because of the loud volume of acoustic drums.

What is a crossover?

Single speakers don't have a flat frequency response over the entire range of audible frequencies. That's why most cabs contain more than one speaker. The biggest speaker is the woofer. It's for the low frequencies. The smallest, the tweeter, is designed to project high frequencies. The third speaker is for midrange. Speaker cabinets have a crossover built-in to prevent these speakers from overloading.

A speaker crossover is a filter system that takes the incoming audio signal and splits it into frequency ranges that each speaker can handle. If you have a woofer and tweeter, then the crossover has a low-pass and high-pass filter. A third bandpass filter handles the midrange frequencies.
