1723 Surround THX

Based on 14 reviews

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.

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).

Professional reviews

  • All of these luxury touches, together with their immaculate style and specifications, make these speakers among the best I’ve tested and certainly an AVS Top Choice for 2023.

  • 1723 S Towers are a superb choice. These can play very loud without strain and prove that the THX badging is more than just a trademarked logo.

  • The Arendal 1723 THX surround system is an unqualified success from almost every standpoint I can imagine. Incredible value and highly recommended!

  • I would rate this first Arendal Sound surround set as a big entrance. Essentially conceived for the sound reproduction in home cinemas, this set delivers more than enough arguments to stand up to a fierce competition

  • With the 1723 system, Arendal has delivered a real highlight for home-cinema fans. The extreme dynamics, the effortless precision and the flawless finish make the Arendal system a real recommendation for ambitious movie fans.

  • Listening to this system brought a smile to our face and reminded us of how good a 5.1 system can sound when done correctly.

  • Extremely dynamic and detailed in a way that makes the experience even more intense, it will surely give Arendal many fans, especially people who come from car stereo or live audio.

  • There are a lot of speakers made and some are better than others for use in a home theater. It’s the case with Arendal Sound that it is very good on music and totally amazing at home theater.

  • It’s not often we hear so insanely tough home cinema like this. Arendal Sound takes the soundstage and just thrusts it into the room. The subwoofer especially hammers and shakes the whole body loose, without even trying.
