1961 Tower is a real wolf in sheep’s clothing. It’s a relatively compact tower speaker, but in typical Arendal Sound fashion, it offers dynamics, realism and sound pressure you wouldn’t expect from a speaker this size. Everything about this speaker is custom designed and developed by our engineers, there are no off-the-shelf components found in other speakers. Well, unless you count other Arendal Sound speakers, as its borrowing quite a bit of tech from its larger brothers in the 1723 series. And of course, the cabinets are heavy and sturdy, made in HDF.

FREQUENCY RESPONSE

Frequency response does not reflect maximum output but shows its true response in a anechoic chamber. Typically you will see an elevated response in the bass response below 40Hz in room due to room gain, which can add around 6dB pr. octave under 40Hz depending on the size of your room.

POLAR RESPONSE

The charts display frequency response measured at different angles, the sum of which is referred to as power response. Much scientific research has been undertaken on this subject and a linear power response has proven a substantial impact on the overall sound, because the frequency response is more even in all directions. This means an Arendal Sound speaker will be more tolerant of differences in room shape, size, construction and materials.

IMPEDANCE RESPONSE

The impedance charts are electrical measurements of the loudspeaker's resistance vs frequency.

With many of the same features and sound trickled down from the 1723 Monitor speakers, the 1961 Monitor is sure to impress with its stunning dynamic capabilities, realism and natural sound. Mounting the waveguide tweeter as close as possible to the midranges result in a very good transition in the midrange to tweeter as well as perfect dispersion off-axis. The result is a speaker that is less affected by different room characteristics – so you can enjoy great midrange to tweeter integration in any room.

1961 Monitor will be equally at home in a home theatre environment as it will in a stereo setup, preferably together with an Arendal Sound subwoofer for great sound throughout the entire frequency spectrum.

The waveguide tweeter in 1961 Center plays a big part in its ability to reproduce a uniform sound not only to the main listening position, but also to the sides. This was one of the reasons why we have utilized a waveguide with uniform dispersion throughout the 1961 series speakers, mounted as close to the midranges as possible, so everyone will enjoy the same great sound. As known from our 1723 series, the dynamics, realism and great focus on voices are trickled down to the 1961 Center speaker.

1961 Center is the exact same speaker as our 1961 Monitor speaker, with changes only to logo positioning, input posts and wall mount options. This ensure a 100% perfect tonal match together as an LCR system with 1961 Center and 1961 Monitor’s together.

For a fully immersive home theatre experience, the surround channels can really make or break the system. 1961 Surround speakers are based on the same TriAxial design as know from our 1723 series, that give an extraordinary feeling of sitting in the middle of the action. The front baffle is based off our 1961 Bookshelf speaker with the same custom woofer and waveguide tweeter, the side channels utilize a custom built 3” full range speaker that are connected in dipole. This combination ensures a huge sweet spot and perfect matched tonality with the rest of the 1961 series.

1961 Bookshelf features our custom-built waveguide tweeter and 5.5” woofer, that are shared throughout the 1961 series. Just like the Monitor and Tower speakers, the Bookshelf is made to be equally at home in a home theatre environment and a pure music setup. The materials, drivers and finish are all what you would expect from an Arendal Sound product. Premium grade.

1961 Bookshelf has a lot of features trickled down from the 1723 series. Not only do they share many of the same features, but even the sound has a red thread throughout these series. Which is great for anyone who would like to mix and match a home theatre system across the different series.

1961 Bookshelf was designed for smaller spaces, or to fit a modern living room décor better than its larger brothers. Don’t be fooled by its size though, while small and compact, it’s incredibly powerful, dynamic and detailed with a big soundstage.

Introducing 1961 Height, a speaker our customers have been requesting for a long time. A speaker designed for height and Atmos duties in a home theatre, but not at all limited to those applications. It perfectly fits on top of the 1961 Tower speaker for a smart look and good sound integration for the Atmos channels.

Designed from the ground up to have a sound very similar to our 1961 Bookshelf speaker, the 1961 Height speaker with its slim size will be equally at home as stereo speakers mounted on the wall, or as an LCR where great sound and a small footprint is sought after for your home theatre applications.
