HOW TO CHOOSE THE PERFECT SPEAKER

If you're looking for a new pair of speakers, the first question to ask yourself is, standmounts or floorstanders ? Until you've narrowed it down to either category, you really can't carry on with the rest of your research, so it's worth spending a bit of time to find out which best serves your needs.

Here are some questions. Once you've worked out the answer to each, you'll be a lot closer to making that crucial decision. Ignore them at your peril, as you may end up wasting money on something that's not right for you.

WHATS MY BUDGET

Let’s start with the most obvious question. If you’re seeking a bargain that sounds great, you’re more likely to be looking at standmount or bookshelf speakers. This isn’t just because you’re paying for more wood or extra drivers, rather that it’s more difficult to engineer top-performing floorstanders for the same price you can with a smaller speaker.

A larger cabinet can equal more unwanted resonance – leading to greater distortion, difficulty with controlling dynamics and the like – so more care needs to be taken in cabinet design.

On the flip side, standmount speakers will need to be paired with suitable stands, so you will need to take that into consideration. After these essential add-ons, the few genuinely brilliant budget floorstanders may end up saving you money on a price-equivalent pair of standmounters.

HOW MUCH SPACE DO YOU HAVE

This could be the make-or-break question. It isn’t so much about the speakers’ footprint – even the most slender standmount speakers take up around the same amount of floor space as a pair of towers once on some decent stands – but how much room the speakers have to breathe.

There are plenty of generally unfussy speakers that don’t mind having their backs close up against a wall, but most of the time you’ll get the best performance by placing them some way out into the room. Though there’s no hard and fast rule, often the bigger the speaker the more space it needs in which to work.

Smaller standmounters can usually tuck in tighter, so there’s no point buying a huge pair of floorstanders if their presentation is going to be hamstrung by the size of your bedsit.

GET THE LOW DOWN

There are plenty of smaller speakers where the low-end response is quite impressive, so if you want to feel your insides rumble you might not need to go as large as you’d think.

That said, the larger cabinets of a pair of floorstanders should deliver more powerful, though not uniformly precise bass, so that may be the way to go if the bottom frequencies are a main concern.

Still, if other sections of this feature have you leaning towards a smaller set of speakers, there’s always the option of curating a 2.1 system – by pairing them with a decent subwoofer to give them some extra welly.

WHAT CAN MY AMP DO

In terms of whether you buy standmounts or floorstanders, partnering kit is going to make a difference. That may have something to do with budget – there’s no point in partnering huge towers with a cut-price micro-system – but also the amount of power your amp can feed into them.

Another way to look at it is whether the speakers you’re looking to buy will give you the option for future upgrades in the rest of your system.

If you’re already thinking about a more powerful amplifier as your next purchase, you might consider a more capable pair of speakers that will show off its muscle long term.

AESTHETICS

Obviously audio performance is the deciding factor but consideration needs to given to the aesthetic design of a speaker. Facets such as poor build or a lack of features matter, and they can rob a great-sounding product of a potential buyer.

Of course there are plenty of eye-catching standmounts and floorstanders – for both the right and wrong reasons – but the main point is you don’t want your speakers to look silly in the room.

Chances are, if you feel ashamed looking at your speakers, you’re less likely to spend as much time enjoying listening to them.
