As the name suggests, floor speakers (also known as tower speakers) are on the floor or on a attached support. Speakers are described as a 2-way, 3-way, 4-way. This is a description of the number of speaker drivers that pass on the different audio frequencies. Although it is difficult to generalize that a 4-way speaker is better than a 2-way speaker, a speaker with more drivers enables the speaker designer to let the components use for a smaller frequency range, which can result in better and more accurate performance .


Music covers a very wide range of frequencies and there is almost no replacement for the size when it comes to being able to reproduce the deep bass in music. The larger format also results in an increase in efficiency, measuring how much enhancer power is required to get them at a certain sound pressure level. The efficiency is measured in DB (decibel) and you usually see such a thing as with one watt power in one meter producing a speaker a sound pressure level of 88dB. The higher this number is, the less power is needed to drive the speaker. In general, more efficient speakers will give a greater sense of contrasts in the dynamics of music. That feeling of great dynamics with the speakers of Wharfedale gives your music the feeling of real life.


If you go to a live concert, you probably experienced that feeling of a wall of sound. Live instruments sound great! A large, standing speaker is much closer to the display of this great sound presentation than a smaller pair of speakers. With large, standing speakers you just get that feeling of a live performance. When you are placed in your room in your room the Wharfedale speakers, they can also give you an amazing three-dimensional sound stage. This means that you can close your eyes and point to each of the musicians. This type of audio experience is pretty amazing with a great recording.


If you go into the world of the home cinema, our floors can also be a great choice. They can flank your large flat screen TV or projection screen.

Due to their large format, the floor standing speakers are not suitable for every environment and person. Unless you hide them behind a false wall of acoustic material (which incidentally works great for home cinema) you will see them. Fortunately, Wharfedale starts focusing on the style, and for some of us we find their appearance very beautiful.

Most floor standing speakers perform best if they are not good to a wall. This means that you usually want to place around 12-18" in your room for the best performance.
