Tower speakers, also called floor-standing speakers, are characterized by tall, slim bodies made of genuine wood or synthetic materials that house their tweeters, woofers, and drivers. They are connected to a home entertainment or a home theater system to produce good quality sounds. They are available in two-, four-, and six-way types ideal for living rooms, entertainment areas, and dens.
Types of Tower Speakers
Kinds of Tower Speakers include the following:
2-way tower speakers
Two-way tower speakers come in pairs. They typically have a sensitivity of 86 to 89 decibel nominal impedance. Their bass-reflex systems are designed in a two-way system to produce better bass sounds. Two-way tower speakers are made with dome tweeters, paper cone drivers, and polymer woofers. They are available in 100- and 120-watt models.
4-way tower speakers
Four-way tower speakers have four-way bass reflex systems that produce deep bass sounds. They typically have a sensitivity of up to 91 decibels. They have a frequency response range of 35 to 27 Hz and a crossover frequency range of 120 Hz to 2.8 kHz. Four-way tower speakers are available in 300- to 550-watt models.
6-way tower speakers
Six-way tower speakers have six-way bass reflex systems. They typically have a 90-decibel sensitivity and a frequency response of 80 Hz to 22 Hz and a crossover frequency range of 80 Hz to 2 kHz. They are made with a dome tweeter and up to four woofers.
Choosing Tower Speakers (Buying tips)
Magnetic shielding: Choose tower speakers with magnetic shielding to prevent audio interference when you position them near the television or the stereo.
Sturdy base: For stability, choose tower speakers with wide bases especially if they are extra thin and tall.
