The Onkyo SKF-4800 is one of the best value floor standing speaker. The one-inch soft dome tweeter projects clear and concise high-frequency effects that have no problem cutting through rumbling bass.
The Klipsch R-28F floor standing speakers yielded consistently good results in both of our listening tests. They are very efficient, and the cabinet design is attractive, especially when the speaker grille is removed.

Because of their 98 dB sensitivity rating, the BIC Acoustech PL-89 II floor standing speakers can project sound at incredible volumes with very little amplification.
