Craftsmanship is a dying virtue in the electronics world I’m afraid to say.  Equipment that was once hand-crafted by skilled tradesman and artisans has given way to mass produced commodities from off-shore factories. Totem Acoustic speakers are the exception to that trend. Totem Acoustic is a small Montreal company that has been working tirelessly for the last 25 years building some of the world’s best speakers. Totem produces some of the finest speakers for your 2 channel and home theatre applications. From the stunning and best bang for your buck Dreamcatcher to the elegant Element series Totem has the right speaker for you.


Element Series

The new Totem Element Series expresses perfect balance between form, function, art and technology. Streamlined for any musical genre, it conveys conviction, honesty and ease while offering enormous scale and presence. Revolutionary in its conception, the Element Series is a true evolutionary step in sound design.

With Totem's huge success in providing world leading On-Wall performance with the Totem Torrent™ woofer-based Tribe III and Tribe V, our next logical step was to design In-Room assimilation of this innovative “no crossover” technology.

The Element Series presents powerful elemental combinations. In nature, five vital elements interact cyclically: wood, fire, earth, metal and water. Just as they form intriguing inter-relationships with one another, this new Totem Element Series sets the pace.

With its custom designed and machined aluminum terminal back plates, precision machined reflex ports and fabulous platinum W.B.T. connectors (bi-wireable), the Ember is burning hot. Available in gleaming, luxurious, 4-coat polyester finishes: Dusk/Black or Ice/White.

The Element Series is designed to integrate seamlessly with the Tribe Series, for stunning synergy in home theatre setups

The new Element woofers used in this series are not only built in-house but deviate substantially from any usual woofer manufacturing. Firstly, they have an extreme precision-machined chassis, rather than a molded or stamped one. Each driver actually requires 3 hours of machining and 4-hours plus of assembly and testing. This allows for precision usually associated with watch making, not standard woofer manufacturing.

Besides this, other major technical innovations were developed internally at Totem. The stainless steel and thick aluminum-based voice coils are not only under-hung within the magnets but also fully immersed in a super strong yet completely localized magnetic field. This specialized enclosure, like a cradle, retains multiple claw-shaped magnetic segments, allowing for a full one-inch throw of the driver. The 7-inch cone is fully rear-damped yet light and stiff. All Element drivers have free air resonances in the 16-17 Hz area.

The tweeter is an incredibly musical on- and off-axis performer. Already utilized in the Tribe V, this stunning tweeter features a 3/8’’ inch thick aluminum faceplate, and a finned aluminum alloy body for cooling and durability. Its great attributes are outstanding clarity, openness and true linearity at any volume setting, allowing it to match form and contribute fully and musically to the woofer's magical pace.

Magnetic grills are standard issue. The floor-standing models Earth and Metal also feature a variably adjustable “center front claw”. In addition, rear cabinet decoupling is provided on the columns via their individual “skid plates”.

The Element Series is designed to integrate seamlessly with the Tribe Series, for stunning synergy in home theatre setups.


 Wood

Crafted for extreme performance, the Element Wood is a center channel specifically designed for the Element Series. Equipped with two micro-machined and hand assembled Torrent™ 6-inch woofers, it is designed for extreme performance. Offering real soundscape integration, the Element Wood is the perfect complementary unit for a full surround application.
