Floorstanding loudspeakers are meant to be seen and heard. They make a statement about the importance you place on audio reproduction. Instead of trying to blend your sound into the woodwork or complement your new flat-panel display, these beauties show who you are. They stand on their own, front and center. And they remain the best option if sound quality is your primary concern.

Today’s specialized loudspeakers are no longer just the left and right speakers for either your home theater or stereo system. Most are magnetically shielded so they can be placed right next to that new big-screen HDTV. There are many varieties of floor-standing speakers: two-way (with a woofer and tweeter), three-way (with a woofer, midrange driver and tweeter), four-way (with two woofers, a midrange driver and tweeter), and a combination type with several drivers. Some models feature sophisticated electronic crossovers, while others include built-in subwoofers.

The two most predominant cabinet finishes these days are piano black or silver (which matches flat-panel TVs). Traditional wood finishes still appear for many upscale brands.
