Standmount loudspeakers are compact loudspeakers intended to be placed on a bookshelf, bureau or dedicated stands. High performance standmount loudspeakers can bring unique midrange-centric sonic benefits playing vocals and small instrument works.
Standmount loudspeakers are a good choice for condo dwellers as the deepest bass is reduced, allowing you to play the speakers at higher volumes and at later times. A good strategy is adding a subwoofer that is on during the day then turned off for late night listening. A standmount/subwoofer combination may better fit some decors with the compact speakers drawing less visual attention up front and the subwoofer placed in a low visibility location.
