Totem Acoustic has just launched its new range, the Bison loudspeakers. The range comprises three new models, which, according to the brand, will organically grow over time. The current new models include Bison Tower, Bison Monitor, and Bison Twin Tower.
All three Bison loudspeakers will employ a brand-new tweeter. This tweeter features a design that meets the specifications and guidelines of the Totem.
At its core, the tweeter is neodymium activated. It comes with 1.3 inches laser etched soft textile dome. It is specially modified for the Totem Towers.
The tweeter extends up to 30 kHz and is low enough to work across the midrange band. But the tweeter is not the only new thing to the series. The Totem Bison series comes with a thoughtfully designed cabinet.
This new cabinet comes with monocoque, lock-metered cabinetry and incorporates full cross bracing. According to Totem, the lock mitering can produce four times as rigid a cabinet as the V groove assembly.
The brand also further explains that lock mitering allows expansion and contraction over many decades. That, too, without any sonic degradation.
Furthermore, the Bison Monitor from Totem has a newly developed woofer. The brand went through four generations of development to get to this stage.
And it all seems worth it as the brand said that the Bison Monitor can offer a “Prairie wide soundstage.”
The Monitor also boasts a ported 2-way design, which comes with 1.3 inches laser etched, textile, soft dome tweeter. You will also find a 5-1/4 inches long-throw woofer and 3 inches voice coil.
Regarding technical specs, the Bison Monitor has a nominal impedance of 8 ohms at 1 watt. The sensitivity is 87 dB at 1 watt, while the crossover frequency is 2.5 kHz. Also, the frequency response of the Monitor is from 40 Hz to 29.5 kHz, and the recommended power is 30 to 150 watts.
Next, you have the Twin Tower and Bison Tower. These two integrate the soundstaging abilities of the Bison Monitor. The design of the Bison Tower includes the 1.3 inches etched textile soft dome tweeter and a 5-3/4 inches woofer with a copper-capped voice coil. Its recommended power is 30 to 150 watts.
On the other hand, the Totem Bison Twin Tower comes with dual 5-3/4 inches woofers that have a copper-capped voice coil. It also features a ported 2-way/3-driver design with 1.3 inches laser etched soft textile dome.
The Twin Tower has a mass-loadable cabinet, which effectively modifies interactions with the acoustics of the room.
And it does that without making any alterations to the placement of the cabinet. The speaker also comes with optional sound-isolating claws. Those will increase the height by 0.59 inches and width by 1.57 inches.
