Designed to transcend time
The Forest Signature is at once a celebration and culmination of the Forest evolution. From its inception, the Forest became an enduring favorite amongst true audiophiles. The new Forest Signature is a transcendent upgrade in every aspect, from its critical components to final acoustic performance. It offers unparalleled musicality and spatial imaging while faithfully rendering subtleness and attack/decay harmonics.
All Forest Signature woofers and tweeters are individually inspected, measured and tested using Totem’s own exceptional quality procedures. This ultra-performance columnar loudspeaker radiates superb musicality for both stereo and multi-channel listening.

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.
With Point-to-Point Connections
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
Master Craftsman Woodwork
Meticulously hand crafted for peak performance that lasts decades. Lock-Miter assembly is an intricate woodworking procedure where edges physically interlock together. The resulting cabinet is up to 5 times stronger than conventional V Groove cabinets. Internal and external veneering resists warping, structurally fortifies, and ensures consistent peak performance. Industry unique Borosilicate damping manages dissipation, keeps the cabinet musically alive, and never deteriorates. Popular materials like poly fillers eventually decay, dramatically affecting the performance. Variable Density Fiberboard is denser at the extremities than the interior to reduce repetitive nodes and resonances.
WBT Bi-Wire / Bi-Amp
Premium WBT connectors are the preferred choice by all audiophiles. WBT connectors lets the signal through without interfering or affecting it. Superior connectors like WBT connectors will prevent any signal loss and get the most out of the entire system.
Articulated Claw and Skid Plate
The ultimate in decoupling and honing Totem speakers. This unique claw can be adjusted to modify the angle of the cabinet for optimal bass loading, phase/space articulation, and fine tuning the relationship between the speaker and environment. An aluminum plate including two formed feet at the base of the speaker eliminates resonances between the floor and speaker enclosure, perfecting bass response and soundstage dimensions.
