How We Picked

Are you someone who loves to listen to, experience, and share all types of music, movies, and TV shows with anyone who will listen?

You may have multiple music apps, YouTube ready at a moment’s notice, and thousands of songs stored on your iPhone. Hulu, Netflix, and Amazon movies are waiting patiently on your home screen. But now you need a way to play them all with good volume, great clarity, and a sleek design that will fit in with the rest of your sound system and other furniture. Whether you’re getting ready to go to work in the morning, out at night, having guests over, or just unwinding on a lazy Sunday morning, you need a tower speaker.

Tower speakers are one of the best and easiest ways to play any songs you enjoy for any occasion. You always have the option to play your music on your phone, but the volume only goes so high, it drains your battery, and the quality gets shaky when you hit a certain level. You can play TV shows and music using just the speakers on your TV, but why limit yourself to your TV’s volume when you can play them using surround sound that will pump the audio through the whole room and make you feel like you’re in a movie theater without ever leaving the house? Plus, tower speakers can decorative, grabbing attention, and drawing focus to your sleek and interesting sound system.

A tower speaker not only gives you access to theater-quality sound, but it’s also a talking point, a decoration, and a filler for otherwise empty vertical space that is waiting to be filled.

With all that in mind, the only real question here is: how do you find the right one to fit your audio needs? Although buying the cheapest audio tower you can find is always an option, it’s not likely to be the best option or produce the best quality sound. Instead you could buy the most expensive one with all of the extras you can find, but that could break the bank and cut into more important expenses. Luckily, we’re here to help you find the best tower speaker for you, and we’ve done our research to put together this list of the best ones for 2019.

At first glance, it’s hard not to be impressed by the sleek design, colors, and size of this particular tower speaker. The front of the speaker contains a strong but flexible removable magnetic grille, giving it more dimension and a tasteful pop of color, which nicely breaks up the shiny, smooth ebony finish throughout. The Tractrix port in the back perfectly matches the rest of the speaker and creates an easy airflow with minimal distortion at any frequency.
