Custom built 2.5 way lineup of bass drivers
Based on 98 reviews
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.

Fast delivery. Best product i have ever tested. Good customer service!
Heads & shoulders above any other audio buying experience in my 53 years of living!
…these speakers are of the highest quality build and provide excellent performance…
Speakers sound amazing and the build quality is top notch. Couldn’t be happier.
What made my experience great; that the level of customer service was outstanding.
My highest recommendation even for those who can afford much more expensive gear!
Above and beyond! They really stand by their products.
Even my wife was like, those speakers are great!
Value is incredible. Sound is huge. Super pleased with purchase.
…quality build very impressive and sound for home the best alI have had…
Rhodium-plated copper terminals. The aluminum backplate is precisely recessed for a perfect fit in the HDF cabinet.
High-quality steel bars and premium spikes. Washers are also included to protect your wooden floor.
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.
Massive bass. Massive ports. Tune your bass to your liking. Three (3) ports make four (4) different variations including sealed for optimized dynamics.
Enclosure tilt at 2.5 degrees for the best soundstage in the listening position. It looks cool too.
We took a look at what spikes actually do and then applied straight-forward, uncompromising engineering to deliver an effective, attractive solution that doesn’t cost the earth.
Vented vs. Sealed – Whatever floats your boat!
Crossover design is a culmination of model, measure, listen, remodel, remeasure, re-listen, all while refining performance in increasingly small steps.
We are especially proud of our new exclusive and fully custom made grills. For all Arendal Sound speakers we have made a free flowing, perforated metal grill which does not affect sound quality.
The 8” woofers in the 1723 THX series are built upon the same core fundamentals as the the 13.8” subwoofer, but with application specific details changed.
The heart of all Arendal speakers, our Tweeter utilizes a 28mm synthetic soft dome with custom designed, matching waveguide.
Chosen for its excellent conductivity, corrosion resistance and hardness; all serve to protect the copper material and music signal carried within.
We have customized a new slick puck-design mounted with M6 bolts. They create extreme stability against the floor. Branded with the Arendal Sound logo.

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.
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).
RoHS is an abbreviation for “Restriction of (the use of certain) Hazardous Substances in electrical and electronic Equipment”. This directive restricts the use of ten hazardous materials in the manufacture of various types of electronic and electrical equipment.

If you are looking for a fantastic all-round speaker, it’s going to be exceptional for movies, and it is going to be exceptional for music. They’ve just done a really good job of making an exceptional all-rounder here.
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.
They are that good and it is just that simple. It seems that all the praises about Arendals are well deserved.
This speaker is truly a high end speaker in every regard possible and is none like other affordable products I have reviewed on this channel.
They may be some of the best looking speakers I’ve seen in a while
If you’re looking for a pair of speakers that show remarkable agility both in music and movies, 1723 Tower THX is a brilliant choice.
We found out that the Norwegian loudspeakers are really exciting. The Arendal 1723 display a big and mighty appearance and then show a really superior sound, capable of handling any situation.
With a big and mighty visual appearance, the Arendal 1723 Tower displays a superior musical performance that can cope with any listening situation.
One of the most compelling speakers in this price range. Especially for the one who wants to mix SPL and finesse.
Arendal has with the 1723 created a glorious masterpiece, a very good all-rounder, which is easy to control, easy to operate, easy to live with.
you want high-end, reference floor-standing Tower speaker, for Stereo and Home Cinema applications
you have a big room above 30m²
you want full-range sound without a subwoofer
1723 Tower is physically too big, or do you have a small room? The 1723 Tower S is the perfect alternative. If you need even higher output with lower extension, then we recommend adding a subwoofer like our 1723 Subwoofer 1S or 1723 Subwoofer 1V. The stand-mount alternative is our 1723 Monitor with an added subwoofer.
