(Pocket-lint) - Bluetooth speakers have come on in leaps and bounds in recent years, but they still can't hold a candle to a proper tower speaker system.

Tower speakers don't have as many size constraints so can fill much larger rooms and give that bigger sound.

There's nothing quite like dedicating that space for your sound system. Tower speakers are not small, but that's the point: bigger speakers mean bigger sound.

They can form a part of a larger sound system with subwoofer and bookcase speakers or you can run tower speakers on their own. Most tower speakers have the traditional cable setup, but some are now coming with Bluetooth connectivity to make them more versatile.
