Enormous Dispersion

KIN IC diffuse sound in an enormously wide, expansive manner comparable to a flood light and illuminate a room with Totem’s holographic sound whereas most others function like a focused, narrow spotlight, creating small acoustic “hot spots”.  The dispersion is almost twice that of competitive speakers, so it takes fewer Totem speakers to thoroughly fill a room, and listeners enjoy the same sound whether seated or standing.

Slim Profile

This series of 5 in-wall, in-ceiling, and angled in ceiling speakers have a mounting depth that is 25% shallower than comparable KIN IC models. The remarkable shallowness ensures KIN IC Slim can fit wherever sound is required.

Carbon Fiber Woofers

The pure polymer impregnated carbon weave is very stiff so it maintains its perfect shape through punishing bass output.  It is also incredibly light so it reacts instantaneously.   Coupled to a high compliance rubber suspension, the cone motion is controlled for the best possible transient response and clarity. The overall result is thunderous, fast, tight bass.

Ceramic Dome Tweeters in Pivoting Faceplate

An aluminum dome receives a ceramic coating to greatly improve the stiffness and damping characteristics over traditional metal domes.  This procedure moves the natural resonance out to 25kHz, well past our hearing ability, for the clearest, distortion-free sound.  The faceplate is pivotable to allow the directional high frequencies to be aimed at the listening area.
