1723 THX SERIES

The 1723 THX Series is the culmination of years of design, analysis, testing and listening. 1723 THX is the Arendal Sound statement of intent to deliver a quality of design, materials and fidelity at prices the market has hardly seen. There are no corners cut in material specification, whether you can see them or not. In Premium segment of speakers, where others disguise steel with gold, we use rhodium plated copper. Where others use plastics, we use machined aluminium. Where others skimp on cabinet thickness, we went thicker and then up-spec’d to high density fibreboard panels (HDF). We did all of this, because it delivers better audible results.

The 1723 Tower THX features four (4), completely custom built 8” drivers in a 2.5 way lineup of bass drivers, mid bass drivers and waveguide tweeter you cannot find anywhere else.

Featuring the same uncompromising approach we used to create the 1723 Tower, the 1723 Monitor THX was developed for smaller spaces and provide the perfect sonic partner to the matching 1723 Center THX.

In starting with a statement product like the Tower, Monitor and Center, we set ourselves a challenge in designing a matching surround speaker. It had to keep up with the capabilities of our front array loudspeakers. Using the same 8” mid-bass driver and waveguide tweeter on the front baffle results in excellent tonal matching and pin-point imaging. To deliver an all-enveloping surround field and assist in peerless surround steering, we fitted custom built full-range dipolar drivers to the angled side baffles into our amazing Tri-Axial speaker.

Our HDF cabinets, thick crossover PCBs and ancillary parts, feature engineering detail you will not find at anything like the price. You will find no plastic parts, even if we could have used them to keep costs down without affecting sound quality.

In developing the 1723 Series, part of the reason for using a waveguided tweeter was that it offered controlled dispersion, plus a lower crossover point than a traditional tweeter flat mounted on a baffle. Lowering the crossover point, removed concerns about turning the 1723 Monitor on it’s side for use in the horizontal format under a screen. As such, the 1723 Center is the same speaker as the 1723 Monitor but sold separately and with the grill badges moved for aesthetic purposes. Tonally, it is a perfect match for The 1723 Monitor and 1723 Tower.

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.

ENGINEERING & DEVELOPMENT

How we do things

TRI-AXIAL 3D
SOUND STAGE

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.

GRAPHS & DATA

All loudspeaker measurements are made in anechoic chamber, measured at 2.83v/1m. The subwoofers are measured at ground plane to get realistic frequency response, measured at 2.83v/1m.

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!
