“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.
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.

This surround speakers are the best I ever had. They are expensive, but give really wide sound on every derection from behind! Also the installation is really easy. I have the complete series from the 1723 serie(Towers, Center, Sub 1.5 and now also the surround ones). What a good sound! I have never ever enjoy the sound like this before! Everthing sound pure, clean and nutural. For this price, you never find better sepakers then this ones! I watch most action movies, buit I am also enjoy music a lot. When I listning music, that's always in stereo(Towers). The music sound really good. Over the shipping part, Arendalsound ships with GLS (free shipping). I receive the speakers on different days. (2 boxes)That was not nice! See also my review about the Center and the shipping disaster!
