1723 Center THX2020-05-11T11:02:11+00:00

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.

“Arendal have done a marvellous job of designing and building their 1723 Series of speakers. They may appear very traditional but that’s not a bad thing in our book and the company’s careful attention to detail and the excellent build quality means you get a range of speakers that look and feel far more expensive than they actually are.”
Steve Withers, AVForums.com

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.

Arendal 1723 Center

I use the 1723 Center in a 5.1.2 setup. I have all the big guys from Arendal 1723 series(Towers, Center, Surround and the Sub 1.5). The center plays clear dialog and good action sound. I watch mostly action and horror movies on 4K B;lu-ray. I have turn off the dynamic eq, dynamic volume and the dolby compression. Even with this settings off it sound fantastic! I am really impressed what this speakers can do for it's price. The receiver that I use is a Marantz SR7010. It can handle these speakers fine. It never get really hot or something even within the cabinet. These speakers are really a small load on the receiver! It's still can play really load! As good as the speakers are, so bad is thbe carrier. It's GLS. The first speaker that came with them was damaged and I have 2 options. 1. Discount or 2. send it back and get a new center speaker. I coose option 2. It came really fast to pick up and deliver the new center speaker. This one was as brand new, even the box was covered with dents and rips. I want to thank the custumer care from Arendal very much. They are really professional and very kind and think in real good salutions with you as custumer. 5 starts for Arendal 1 Star for GLS tranasport.

Arendal 1723 Center

I completed my 1723 series! I have every large speaker now (Towers, Center, Sub 1.5 and the Surround ones). The Center does a GREAT Job in sound in also the size! Biggest Center I ever had! Look good at the size when you buy it! It could be that it not fit under you tv. Luckly mine does! I watch Mostly Action and horror movies, the dialog is very clear, even with no compression( dynamic eq and dynamic volume off. I use the complete set on a Marantz SR7010. It's sound perfect. The Marantz will never get warm or hot. Even when I listning on higher levels it gets low on the max. These speakers are really light to handle! The build quality is like a tank and it looks really good too! I like the magnetic grills very much. No trouble, it fits always! Then the shipping part. It was shipped by GLS (free shipping) and the first center that i receive was damaged really bad. I big crack was on the back of it. The sound escape there also. I contact Arendal about this by e-mail and i have a choise to get discount or send it back and receive a new center. I choose for a new one. I get it in 3 days (very fast). The damaged one is picked up by my home. The box of the new center was also damaged (big dents an rips), but the center speaker was fine! Why do I complain about the box? I want to keeps the boxes from the speakers. When I moving away, these boxes are the best protection for it! Read also my shipping trouble by GLS about the surround. 5 start for the speaker and Arendal 1 star for GLS (shipping company)

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.
