Arendal has delivered another Highlight for home cinema enthusiasts with its 1723 Monitor S THX system. Being only marginally less dynamical than the bigger “sister models”, the Monitor S system plays with extreme precision and can also show off with a THX license.”

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.
Why 13.8”? The 25% larger surface area, when compared to a 12” driver, yields a woofer that requires less excursion and power to achieve the same SPL levels. Subwoofer 2 and Subwoofer 3 are using dual 13.8″ drivers.
MAGNETIC METAL GRILLS
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.
