1723 Subwoofer 2S review- Audioholics

The build quality is terrific for the class, and the 1723 Subwoofer 2S is built like a brick.

…I am still excited to get my hands on this sub since I think it may be the sweet spot among Arendal’s subwoofer offerings….

The reason why I think the 2S could be their finest sub is the performance density per liter that it could provide. To put it another way, it could possibly pack more punch for its size than any other sub from Arendal.

The 1723 Subwoofer 2S is a real corker among sealed subs. These numbers corroborate my listening experience that this sub has a tremendous punch. 

This measurement set earns the 2S our Bassaholics ‘Large’ Room Rating, meaning it should be sufficient for a 3,000 to 5,000 cubic foot area.

….as always, I will start with the weaknesses. The problem with this is that, much like other Arendal products I have dealt with, the 1723 Subwoofer 2S just doesn’t have any real weaknesses

…those who want to blast their tunes with near-perfect fidelity have a superlative choice in the 2S…

So then let’s talk about its strengths, the foremost of which is its performance, especially for its size.

The amount of punch it packs for the size is a major advantage.

As we said before, the 1723 Subwoofer 2S is not a tiny sub, but it is not a huge mini-fridge either. An advantage to this is that it can fit in many spaces where a giant sub would not.

The feature set of the 1723 Subwoofer 2S is great in its class.

It’s a nice-looking subwoofer, as subs go, and wouldn’t be out of place even in higher-end interiors. And it feels as solid as it looks.

The build quality is terrific for the class, and the 1723 Subwoofer 2S is built like a brick.

What also inspires confidence in its build quality is the 5-year warranty on the electronics: well above the industry average.

In the end, I found that there was a lot to like about the 1723 Subwoofer 2S and nothing to dislike.

I will be sad to return my review unit, but my evaluation of this one is finished, so it’s time to look at the next sub. I wish all subwoofers that pass through my examination were as good.
