Evolution in sound design

The new Element woofers used in this series are not only built in-house by Totem 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.

Other major technical innovations were developed internally at Totem. The stainless steel and thick aluminium -based voice coils are not only under-hung within the magnets but also fully immersed in a super strong yet completely localised magnetic field. This specialised 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 utilised in the Tribe V, this stunning tweeter features a 3/8’’ inch thick aluminium faceplate, and a finned aluminium 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 “centre 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 surround setups.
