1723 – Tower2019-02-20T13:58:20+00:00

The 1723 Tower and 1723 Tower S 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.

“Arendal Sound has managed to shrink the loudspeaker a lot without losing dynamics, sound signature and the great soundstage. An impressive loudspeaker!”
Håvard Holmedal, Stereo+

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!

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 Tower THX: Jeg har nå hatt disse høyttalerne i hus i godt og vel en uke. De første dagene har de stått og spilt i hjemmekinoen 24 timer i døgnet for innspilling på relativt høyt volum. Har nå fått testet de litt, og dette er, uavhengig av pris, noe av det bedre jeg har hørt. Legger jeg prisen til grunn finnes der ikke konkurrenter til denne høyttaleren. Mine forrige høyttalere kostet 235.000,- for paret (Adam Audio Tensor Beta), og Arendal Sound 1723 Tower er faktisk ikke så langt unna disse i ren opplevd lydkvalitet. Jeg har et fantastisk godt rom, hvis eneste ulempe er at det er svært avslørende for dårlig lyd. Men disse høyttalerne er vanvittig oppløste, meget stramme i bassområdet og har en dynamikk i mellomtonen svært få andre høyttalere jeg har testet er i nærheten av. At du i tillegg kan spille ulidelig høyt er bare en bonus, men for min del ikke noe absolutt krav, siden jeg sjeldent spiller så høyt. Jeg er svært opptatt av delefilterkonstruksjon, for er ikke dette skikkelig gjort vil man miste mye av flerdimensjonaliteten i lyden, og stereoperspektivet blir flatt og simpelt. Med disse vil man få en ekstrem holografi, og jeg vil plassere disse høyttalerne på min topp 3 liste, kun forbigått av for eksempel TAD R1 (500.000,- paret) og Martin Logan Summit X (140.000,- paret). Mine gamle Adam gruses fullstendig av disse på dette punktet, noe som faktisk gjør meg litt irritert … Summa summarum, bedre enn de fleste andre høyttalere på faktorer som holografi, dynamikk, oppløsning, perspektiv, lydtrykk, lav forvrengning og ikke minst finish – de ser ut til å kunne koste minst 5 ganger så mye. Minst! At de er meget lette å drive er også en klar fordel, man driver de glatt med en grei receiver. Løp og kjøp!

1723 Tower THX: I an really impressed with my new towers 🙂
I tested these chris cornells Scream album: I used to think Why dont they mix the albums better, the music would be so much better.." when i played these songs on my old speakers, (definitive technology mythos st), now when I played the album I was amazed by how easy my new towers playes this songs. More details, more punch, and it sounds more like it was suppose to that way. This is by far the best speakers I have had. And heard!
