Floorstanding or tower speakers are a great choice for larger listening rooms, where the additional bass output will not overwhelm the room. If you listen to bass orientated music, or looking for high volumes, a good floorstanding hi-fi speaker will produce a huge sound stage, a wide frequency range and a scale of sound that can be completely realistic.
Choose a hi-fi amplifier to drive your floorstanding speakers with sufficient power output so that it does not clip or distort at normal listening levels - see our article on how to choose amplifiers on our blog for more detailed information.
Make sure you budget for good quality speaker cable and banana plugs to ensure you get the best possible sound from your hi-fi amplifier or AV receiver - and spike shoe floor protectors can be useful in avoiding damage to laminate or wood floors.
