Professional reviews

“The speakers produce a large sound stage, great dispersion for anyone listening outside of the sweet spot. Speakers filled my room with sound that was full with great detail in the high-end and surprising amount of bass instruments…”


With a crystal-clear, detailed, dynamic, and amazingly deep sound, the slim Norwegians are definitely an exciting proposition – especially at their more than fair price.


"My home theater has never sounded this good. Budget-friendly, high-quality, for those who are limited in space."

Hatoraid Cowboy Cinema

"As long as your room’s not huge, and you can pair that thing with a good subwoofer, it’s going to sound incredible."

Nemo Propaganda

"I am impressed now. Really impressed. To this veteran’s ears and eyes, the Arendal 1961 Towers are truly special, really way above the norm. Over the years, I’ve seen ‘em all and I’ve heard ‘em all. Arendal should be arrested for offering speakers of this quality for $1799/pair."

Frequency response

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 response

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.

Impedance response

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).
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. It is closely linked with the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Directive (WEEE) 2002/96/EC which sets collection, recycling and recovery targets for electrical goods and is part of a legislative initiative to solve the problem of huge amounts of toxic electronic waste.
