1723 – Center2019-03-11T14:10:25+01:00

In developing the 1723 Series, part of the reason for using a waveguided tweeter was that it offered controlled dispersion, plus a lower crossover point than a traditional tweeter flat mounted on a baffle. Lowering the crossover point, removed concerns about turning the 1723 Monitor on it’s side for use in the horizontal format under a screen. As such, the 1723 Center and 1723 Center S is the same speaker as the 1723 Monitor/Monitor S but sold singly and with the grill badges moved for aesthetic purposes. Tonally, it is a perfect match for The 1723 Monitor/Monitor S and 1723 Tower/Tower S.

All our 1723 speakers are Certified by the very strict testing protocols of THX Ultra where each speaker must pass a set of 400 measurements. The THX Certification does not mean it is a dedicated home speaker, but rather a guarantee of tight consistency within well-established acoustic parameters. THX Certification is as much about music, as for movies.

The engineers at THX Labs utilize a proprietary scientific testing methodology to ensure the highest audio fidelity possible. All 1723 speakers passed the THX Ultra Certification without any change to the products, meaning our standards already exceed THX Ultra level out of the box!

DYNAMICS

Dynamics are king.

PREMIUM
BUILD QUALITY

Higher density and naturally better damped than MDF (Medium Density Fiberboard), using HDF (High Density Fiberboard) results in a sonically inert cabinet. We use no plastic parts.

WAVEGUIDE
TWEETER

The heart of all Arendal speakers, our Tweeter utilizes a 28mm synthetic soft dome with custom designed, matching waveguide.

MASSIVE &
CLEAN BASS

The 6.5” and 8” woofers in the 1723 series are built upon the same core fundamentals as the the 13.8” subwoofer, but with application specific details changed.

1723 Center THX: Jeg kjøpte denne siden jeg hadde ARENDAL SOUND 1723 TOWER THX i samme farge fra før og det var 10% rabatt på toppen, låter fint, var større en jeg hadde tenkt men det går fint. Anbefales

1723 Center THX: Kommer fra Ken Kreisel Q125C center. Den var betydelig mindre i størrelse, men med en herlig gjengivelse av stemmer med mer. Arendal Sound 1723 Center gir meg alt hva Ken Kreisel ga, bare mer av alt, stemmene til damer og menn kommer enda klarere frem, med mer dybde og “styrke” enn hva jeg hadde. Det er mer rom, mer dynamikk og det jeg hører, høres større ut, enda mektigere, mer som i det virkelige livet ut på en måte. Jeg er veldig fornøyd med denne oppgraderingen, selv om Ken Kreisel både var og er fortsatt en meget god høyttalerserie med mer WAF-faktor og lydmessig ville de aller, aller fleste vært meget fornøyd med et anlegg basert rundt disse. Jeg vil nå virkelig gjerne ha de gulvstående og surround høyttalerne også for å få en så lik lydsignatur som mulig i min hjemmekino. Veldig imponert over hva Arendal Sound har fått til her! Absolutt tommelen opp fra meg! Nå bruker jeg nesten litt for mye tid til å høre om igjen filmer, tvserier og å se litt vel mange timer hver dag på TV igjen 🙂 Tusen takk for super service fra Lsound, som tok i mot meg på en lørdag, utenom åpningstid. Det er virkelig sjelden å oppleve slik grad av service lenger, fikk en rask demo av de gulvstående når jeg var der. Tusen takk Lsound – dere raker et hode og mer over hva som er vanlig i forretningsverdenen der ute!
