1723 Monitor THX

Based on 12 reviews

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

Frequency

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

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.

Impendence

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

Product Compliance

CE marking is an administrative marking with which the manufacturer or importer affirms its conformity with European health, safety, and environmental protection standards for products sold within the European Economic Area (EEA).
