1723 Center S THX
Downscaled version of the 1723 Center
The 1723 Center S is a downscaled version of the 1723 Center. The speaker is identical to 1723 Monitor S, but sold singly and with the grill badge moved for aesthetic purposes. This makes sure that you will have 100% timbral match when using it with any of the 1723 speakers like the Monitor S and Tower S which are sharing the exact same core MTM design. The materials, quality, drivers and crossover components are just the same as you would expect from any of the 1723 speakers. The only difference is smaller enclosure with 6.5” drivers in 1723 Center S, instead of the 8” in the 1723 Center. The sheer performance, level of detail and dynamics delivered by Center S is unheard of in this price category. Expect the Center S to be compared to much higher priced center speakers on the market.
Rhodium-plated copper terminals. The aluminum backplate is precisely recessed for a perfect fit in the HDF cabinet.
THE PREMIUM FEEL
Magnetically fastened steel grills, wrapped in premium cloth for a smooth look. A “thump” and the grill is snapped onto the gorgeous HDF cabinet in premium paint.
Quality sound starts with quality drivers. High-performance tweeter in custom waveguide backed up by Dual (2) 6.5″ woofers.

Voices come through very crisp, clear and no more muddiness. This is exactly what I've been seeking for along time!Mark McLafferty
This center blows every other speaker in its competition out of the park.Kush Arora
Wow! Just amazing!Johan Kardell
Very clear voices. As for monitors, the build quality and sound is absolutely stunning.Vitor
Wow it’s all beautiful and I am very happy!!Jeanne Tenney
Love the fit and finish of this speaker. Sounds great and integrates really well with the 1961 towers for home theater. Definitely bigger than it seems even when compared to the 1961 towers and almost comical when compared to my previous center (Pioneer Andrew Jones).Humberto De Santiago
Awesome Quality! Close to perfection!Reiner Warthmann

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!

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