1723 Speakers

When Arendal Sound set out to create the 1723 series, we knew there were good reasons why people would want a smaller, monitor style speaker. Correctly realised, such a speaker would be more than ample for even relatively large rooms when used with a subwoofer and of course, by using three across the front of a surround sound system, a perfect tonal match is assured. This is obvious information and yet people in exactly this situation will prefer tower type speakers, simply because they have a cleaner, room friendly look. They will pay for drivers they may not need, just for the aesthetics. And no wonder. Looking around, most stands capable of holding a speaker like The 1723 Monitor effectively, look like refugees from the Brooklyn Road Bridge! There are lots of choices out there and they’re all in one size fits nobody.

Featuring the same uncompromising approach we used to create the 1723 Tower, the 1723 Monitor was developed for smaller spaces and provide the perfect sonic partner to the matching 1723 Center. The 1723 Monitor features a completely custom built 2-way lineup of mid-bass drivers and a waveguide tweeter you cannot find anywhere else.

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.

In developing the 1723 Series, part of the reason for using a waveguided tweeter was that it offered controlled dispersion, plus a lower crossover point than a traditional tweeter flat mounted on a baffle. Lowering the crossover point, removed concerns about turning the 1723 Monitor on it’s side for use in the horizontal format under a screen. As such, the 1723 Center is the same speaker as the 1723 Monitor but sold separately and with the grill badges moved for aesthetic purposes. Tonally, it is a perfect match for The 1723 Monitor and 1723 Tower.

The 1723 Tower features a completely custom built 2.5 way lineup of bass drivers, mid bass drivers and waveguide tweeter you cannot find anywhere else. Our HDF cabinets, thick crossover PCBs and ancillary parts, feature engineering detail you will not find at anything like the price. You will find no plastic parts, even if we could have used them to keep costs down without affecting sound quality.
