There are two different types of floor standing speakers: conventional driver speakers and electrostatics. Electrostatics are very different from conventional loudspeakers in that they are very dynamic. Some may consider these speakers to be more superior, due to the amount of technology that goes into the manufacturing process.
How do Electrostatics Work?
Between two thin perforated metal plates is a very thin diaphragm. So thin that you can literally see through the tower. When high voltage is applied, the electrically charged diaphragm moves between the two charge plates, called a push/pull action. Once the speakers receive enough voltage, together the diaphragm and plates produce audio. Because the membrane is so thin there is less weight, meaning a more accurate sound can reach a higher frequency, resulting in better mids and highs. These types of speakers are not recommended for deep lows (bass) and they should be paired with a well crafted subwoofer to ensure the best audio quality.
