1723 Surround THX2019-11-06T01:17:43+00:00

In starting with a statement product like the The 1723 Tower and 1723 Monitor, we set ourselves a challenge in designing a matching surround speaker, that could keep up with the capabilities of our front loudspeakers. Using the same 8” mid-bass driver and waveguide tweeter on the front baffle as used throughout the 1723 Series, excellent tonal matching is assured as is 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 TriAxial speaker.

“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!

PREMIUM
BUILD QUALITY

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.
