“Offering a powerful performance from easy to accommodate cabinets, Arendal Sound’s THX Ultra-certified multichannel package brings Hollywood to your home theatre. The two-way 1723 Monitor S THX standmounts, with 6.5in midbass drivers and waveguided tweeters, showcase a transparent sound, with excellent dispersion and extreme dynamics. This standard of performance is replicated by the centre channel enclosure, while Arendal Sound’s Tri-Axial Surround S THX models produce an expansive rear soundfield. Dramatic, deep bass comes courtesy of the 1723 Subwoofer 2, which maintains a tight grip on deep bass effects via a push-push dual 13.8in driver array and 1kW power plant. Design and build quality are exceptional for the price.”
All our 1723 speakers are Certified by the very strict testing protocols of THX Ultra where each speaker must pass a set of 400 measurements. The THX Certification does not mean it is a dedicated home speaker, but rather a guarantee of tight consistency within well-established acoustic parameters. THX Certification is as much about music, as for movies.
The engineers at THX Labs utilize a proprietary scientific testing methodology to ensure the highest audio fidelity possible. All 1723 speakers passed the THX Ultra Certification without any change to the products, meaning our standards already exceed THX Ultra level out of the box!

Higher density and naturally better damped than MDF (Medium Density Fiberboard), using HDF (High Density Fiberboard) results in a sonically inert cabinet. We use no plastic parts.
To deliver an all-enveloping surround field and assist in peerless surround steering, we fitted two (2) 4” custom built dipolar drivers to the angled side baffles into our TriAxial speaker crossed at 200Hz.
We took a look at what spikes actually do and then applied straight-forward, uncompromising engineering to deliver an effective, attractive solution that doesn’t cost the earth.
We are especially proud of our new exclusive and fully custom made grills. For all Arendal Sound speakers we have made a free flowing, perforated metal grill which does not affect sound quality.
