Your home audio system will get a huge boost with a set of floor-standing speakers. Shop floor speakers at BestBuy.ca and get FREE shipping*.
Consider the moment in a movie theatre, before the film, when the surround sound system demo comes on. You can feel the rumbling audio in your spine. That's the power of high-def sound, at its best, and with tower speakers you can enjoy the living room equivalent. Tower speakers, or floor standing speakers, as they are common referred to, deliver high-end sound to compliment your stereo set-up for watching movies or listing to music. Let's go over some common questions about these audio components.
The first order of business before considering tower speakers is to assess the area where you plan to put them. Tower speakers, generally speaking, are the largest speaker component in a home sound system, so you need the appropriate amount of space around the TV or stereo. Ideally, you will be adding these speakers to an entertainment room that is already outfitted, décor wise, for a multi-component sound system with the tower speakers facing your sitting area.
Once you've mapped out the area where you plan to install floor speakers, you need to make sure the speakers are compatible with your audio source. Speakers run through your stereo's receiver, which receives sound from a source (TV, turntable) and redistribute it, so it's important your floor speakers are compatible in terms of power handling. Check the output wattage on your receiver and be sure the speakers can match the volume load.
You're going to have two types of floor speakers to choose from -- wireless and speaker wired. If it's the latter, take notice of the terminals at the back of the speaker. Spring clip terminals are the most common and accept bare wire inputs, while binding post terminals offer more versatility by accepting different connectors. Gold-plated binding posts, for example, are the top choice for audiophiles. Wireless speakers are preferable for keeping a clean look in your audio room, eliminating the need for running cables, but they don't offer the same level of audio quality as wired speakers.
