Customized Drivers

Bespoke Acoustic Engineering

Every single driver is completely unique to Totem and proprietary in design, engineered by Totem and then manufactured to the strictest standards to meet our parameters by the finest raw driver suppliers in the world. In some cases, where the technology is beyond the capabilities of suppliers or is wished to kept secret, Totem can and will build our own drivers. Every driver exhibits phase linearity, speed, emotion, off axis natural presentation, and spatial articulation.

Uniquely Designed Amplifiers

Specifically conceived for one job

Each Totem subwoofer amplifier is designed with a specific set of parameters for a single goal; to power the particular drivers within its given enclosure, all designed in tandem.  Simply put, each Totem subwoofer amplifier is unique.  As unique as every Totem driver.  They are designed in tandem so they work harmoniously and with ultimate efficiency, attaining the maximum from each other.  Throughout the design process the amplifier is tweaked and modified until it perfectly combines power and musicality.

Bass Reflex Enclosure  

Slot Port

The slot port is methodically designed to tune the enclosure to the lowest possible frequency, while maintaining impact, musicality, and depth.  It tunes the cabinet in the same manner a port tunes a speaker, and allows the subwoofer to produce size defying bass.

Ultra Low-Profile Anti-Resonance Feet

Eliminate unwanted vibrations  

These feet help acoustically isolate the cabinet from the floor, preventing resonances, vibrations, and other unwanted effects that can have negative effects on the performance. It is strongly recommended that they be used so the subwoofer can perform at its full potential.
