1723 Monitor S THX
Downscaled version of the 1723 Monitor
The 1723 Monitor S is a downscaled version of the 1723 Monitor. It features a completely custom built 2-way lineup of mid-bass drivers and a waveguide tweeter you cannot find anywhere else. 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 Monitor S, instead of the 8” in the 1723 Monitor. 1723 Monitor S was developed for smaller spaces and provide the perfect sonic partner to the matching 1723 Center S. The sheer performance, level of detail and dynamics delivered by Monitor S is unheard of in this price category. Expect the Monitor S to be compared to much higher priced 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.
1723 Monitor THX along with 1723 Surround THX makes an incredible world-class performance together. Same Hi-End waveguide-tweeter combination, 6.5″ woofers, and overall quality components.

More details and features
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.
