Top Ten Best Floor Standing Speakers | Floorstanding Speakers Reviewed

Updated on August 6, 2011

Why Floor Standing Speakers?

Two of the most common speaker setups are the Bookshelf Speakers and Floor Standing Speakers. Generally, Bookshelf Speakers are smaller in size and you need an extra subwoofer to produce the full range of deep and rich sound that you so crave.

...SCROLL DOWN FOR THE BEAUTIES...

Most Bookshelf Speakers simply do not have the capacity to produce low frequency sounds. Floor Standing Speakers on the other hand are ready to give you a full and rich auditory experience right out of the box because of their larger drivers. These speakers do not need an extra subwoofer to get them going. Floor Standing Speakers are larger and have more of a frequency range.

Floor Standing Speakers are also called “Towers” or “Tower Speakers” because of their size and shape. They are usually placed on the floor or inside a specially designed cabinet. Now, I know that I said that you don’t need a separate subwoofer with good quality Floor Standing Speakers but if you like more powerful bass response, then you can certainly hook up an extra woofer in there as well.


Floor Standing Speakers as Your Main Speakers

Floor Standing speakers are generally more expensive than the Bookshelf variety. But, they also use less power and are therefore more efficient at producing louder and richer sound for the same amount of power as Bookshelf Speakers. If you already own a set of Bookshelf speakers and want to upgrade to Floor Standing Speakers, then you might consider keeping your smaller speakers and using them as a Surround Sound System.


Below is my list of Top 10 Floor Standing Speakers

Each of these are 4-5 star rated, have excellent reviews and are also

Final Word on Floor Standing Speakers

Remember that Floor Standing Speakers are larger and take up more space in your room. But they can easily be placed on the floor besides the sound system. The newer models are beautifully constructed and can make a great design statement for your room. Floor Standing Speakers are an excellent investment that can give you that rich full sound that you have been looking for.

If you like Hip Hop music or good Trance music, you just have ot have a good set of speakers to go with your sound system. I have also seen people who play Playstation or Xbox Live with an amazing TV set but not good enough speakers. That, to me is a sin. I mean you have to have a great set of speakers if you are going to play any of those games. Try to think about Medal of Honor with a wicked set of Floor Standing speakers by the side of your giant flat screen TV. You should be able to feel to bass under your ass. That's how I feel!

If you like sound and can discern the difference between rich and average sound then you definitely need a set of tower speakers in your home. Floor Standing speakers provide sound that just cannot be beat by book shelf speakers. I have also noticed that wooden casings give better and fuller sound than plastic, so that might be another thing to consider when looking at floorstanding speakers.

But back to the Trance music and Hip Hop or even House. I mean I understand if you listen to Britney Spears or Jonas Brothers with a pair of laptop speakers but if you arel ooking to get into some good dubstep then you have to invest in a wicked pair of cherry red tower speakers.  So please, if you have learned anything from this article, it should be that you need to get your self a nice pair or three of these speakers. Ok I have ranted and raved enough for now!

Having a set of tower speakers can complete your room nicely especially if you also buy a nice cabinet for them that matches the furniture in your room. Floor Standing speakers can also be used as decorative pieces as long as you are smart about hiding the wiring. So I hope you enjoyed my piece about top ten floor standing tower speakers. Go get yourself a nice set .Amazon has some great deals.
