Features in Detail
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.
Totem crossovers don’t require many parts because of the synergy between our customized drivers, but the components are the world’s best. Our crossovers aren’t built on PCB’s because the laminated conductive tracks are weak and inconsistent. Instead they are secured to a thin piece of fiberboard or insulated polymers and components are mechanically crimped together because it simply sounds better. When we must solder, we choose WBT Silver Solder, the purest in the industry.
Artisanal Cabinet Construction
Tribe enclosures are not built with the mass production method of the competition but with the artisanal attention of a master furniture craftsman. The slim enclosures are composed of Variable Density Fiberboard, which is denser at the extremities than the interior to reduce repetitive nodes and resonances. Each is meticulously hand assembled for peak performance that lasts decades.
Gold Plated Bi-wire/Bi-Amp connectors
Two sets of high conductivity gold plated connectors efficiently capture the incoming signal for superior speaker performance and allow traditional, bi-wire, or even bi-amplification options. They accommodate a variety of connection options such as bare wire, banana plugs, and spades.
Flush Mount Wall bracket
The included bracket installs easily, firmly holds the speaker flush to the wall, and allows for both vertical and horizontal orientation.
