  • Best floor standing speakers...

    In response to some of the recent "lists" for best of or worst of; What are the best sounding floor speakers you've heard? Must meet the following criteria:

    1.) Must actually sit on the floor.
    2.) Must actually produce sound. No Braille emitting transducers
    3.) Must use tranducers of some type. No harvesting of cosmic rays.
    4.) Must be less than a million a pair.
    5.) Cannot harm the environment.
    6.) Cannot have live musicians living in a small environment.
    7.) Must be manufactured on the planet Earth.
    8.) Cannot be made by Oompa Loompas.

      Well, when I was younger I had been called an ooompa looompa at times.
      I guess that removes my trunc towers from this list.

      I am going to have to vote for anything that originated in a white van.

                    Is this list the product of any mind-altering substances? :D
                    Isn't it about time we started answering rhetorical questions?

                        I keep hearing people talking about how much they love their "Towers" so obviously whatever that is is the best. In other words, "Towers" are the best speakers, I have heard.

                        My vote: "Towers"

                        Sorry, this is one of my pet peeves. Floorstanding SPEAKERS. Tower SPEAKERS. I can't tell you how many people think their computer is called a "tower" too. No, that's the computer you moron, you look at a screen or monitor or display.

                          Some people can have a tower case for a computer. They are called full tower cases.

                          As far as tower/floor standing speakers go, yes, a good one should be the best. They generally have or at least should have lower bass, a good one should be full range. Have enough bass to not need a sub for music.

                          As to what the best is. Who knows. I hate the term the best. The best that you know of, the best by opinion, the best you've heard of?

                          I'd need to find a way to demo them, but in all seriousness, if I wanted to build floor standing speakers, these might be the best (for my budget) that I could possibly realistically obtain. http://www.madisoundspeakerstore.com...idrange-3-way/

                              Oh Gawd, it's contageous. Quick, get a shot or something. Or of something . . .
