Bookshelf speakers or stand mount speakers are compact in design but often powerful enough to rival larger tower speakers when properly located. The key advantage to bookshelf speakers is space, as they can be placed on a secure shelf or cabinet, ideally at ear level when in the sitting position.
Speakers placed on speaker stands generally don't save space over tower speakers, but the simplicity in design often performs better in small areas. Cabinet construction, tweeters (dome or ribbon), woofers, materials, and design, influence the price and performance. If you have questions about which is best for you, please contact us, and we'll be happy to assist.
