Following on from the launch earlier this week of their 1723 subwoofers, Norweigian brand, Arendal Sound are launching the 1961 series of loudspeakers.

Arendal has trickled down as much of the1723 technology as possible into the 1961 series.

Waveguide Technology

All Arendal Sound speakers are built around our Arendal Sound’s waveguide technology, the 1961 series offers a new customized waveguide. It’s not a horn, it’s a waveguide with a sleek design. They say that “the waveguide delivers the best possible experience not only at your sweet spot but at the surrounding seating positions as well”. Arendal has designed a new matching 28mm tweeter based on the 1723 tweeter.
