There would be no point in the time and attention we’ve put into the massive engineering of Arendal Sounds speakers, if we then asked you to sit it on top of wobbly M6 or M8 spikes. 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.
Spikes have one job to do. Contrary to popular (marketing?) belief, they do not isolate the speaker and floor from each other. That could only be accomplished with a compliant mounting. No; they provide a solid and stable contact with the floor, locking the speaker rigidly in place. This is what we want, because we need every last detail from our custom built drivers moving air and not the cabinet.
First, we engineered a thick aluminum bar that will not bend. We made that bar long. Long enough to significantly extend the width of the speaker footprint, further aiding stability, and to give you plenty of Knuckle room for adjusting the spikes.
Then we looked at the spikes. We could see no reason why you should be asked to grovel around on the floor with spanners, tipping speakers up to get to the adjusters or locknuts underneath. So we engineered a large diameter conical spike in anodized black aluminum and top screw, all of which can be firmly tightened by hand from above and without having to tip the loudspeaker.
We have again avoided the use of plastics, so you can tighten the locking nuts as tightly as your hands will allow.
The Spike Kit is safe, simple, secure, attractive and very, very effective.
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. The result is lower distortion, higher power handling and most importantly – tighter bass. Every part for this driver has been custom tooled to deliver high output, low […]>
Every part of this driver has been thoroughly engineered, Klippel and FEA analysed and customized to deliver high output, low distortion, accurate bass. Designed to get the typical explosive, hard hitting dynamics, precision control and bass definition required to resolve the finest details of music that Arendal Sound is known for from the 1723 Series.>
“Revolutionary” is rarely used in the audio industry, especially for speakers and subwoofers. The new Avalanche 550 IQ subwoofer amplifier from Arendal Sound is one exception, measured in performance and technology. State of the art amplifier designed and developed from scratch to give performance and features you could only ask for at much higher price levels.>
Even for our 1961 series we opted with HDF (High Density Fiberboards) cabinets over conventional MDF (Medium Density Fiberboards). The reason being a much stiffer cabinet which improves dynamics and sound quality. Premium finishes, no vinyl. New designed puck design rubber feet with Arendal Sound logo engraved. 1961 is built on premium level.>
Quality bass starts with quality drivers. Our 5.5″ woofers are High Performing bass drivers which delivers at Premium level standard. Extreme dynamics is key for effortless and thrilling listening experience. Starting from single driver units to whopping quad drivers on the 1961 Tower!>
