Bookshelf Medium Size Speakers

Speaker Ranking

The Medium Bookshelf class of speakers generally have woofers between 4” to 6”. These speakers will generally be the best size/performance trade-off for most people. The Bookshelf class have no battery, come in pairs and generally will sound better than most portable battery Bluetooth speakers. Bigger woofers will have deeper bass but the speaker will generally be larger and heavier. They all come with a built in amp so you can play directly from your phone or laptop.

For general listening I would not hesitate to recommend any of these speakers on this page except for the ones at the bottom labeled not recommended. Nearly all of these sound fantastic. Studio monitoring use is more critical and I would generally recommend something near the top with an added subwoofer.
