Totem Bison Twin Tower
Over the years, we haven’t altered our engineering on how a speaker is developed and produced. Our expertise has nonetheless evolved and is therefore incorporated in this most stunning Bison Twin Tower. No shortcuts here, as practicality is thrown out the window and symbiotic /synergistic/ extremely musical relationships are composed and interwoven by virtue of carefully selected components and inter-articulated parts.
By means of our own computational tables, unique driver development, evolved and superb revolutionary hard-wired crossover assemblies, beautiful Canadian cabinetry with resultant cutting edge, subtle aesthetics ; the birth of the Bison Twin Tower is formulated. Both high performance woofers working in the same frequency domain provide a lush, thick, midrange and important bass fullness that is unique in the category. This same principle is highlighted in our own flagship Metal V2 and in the Bison TT is equally privileged by the tremendous advantages of this carefully construed assemblage.
If one wants to Feel, Hear and truly Sense the VISTA , HEIGHT and SCALE possible through a speaker system, the Bison TT must be felt, heard and experienced. Comfortable with a large array of diverse electronics , it can provide for a top-class GIANT sound experience for the most discerning tastes.
Prepare to feel the stampede and force of the Bison Twin Tower!
Powerful Yet Graceful
This made-in-Canada flagship Bison Twin Tower is a stunning result of our continued evolution of expertise in loudspeaker engineering. Designed to allow listeners to truly experience the full-scale of musical vistas, this speaker is so immersive that you will get completely lost in the music. It pairs well with a broad array of electronics and when used with a well-designed amplifier, it will provide a world-class sonic experience that will satisfy the most discerning tastes.
The Bison Twin Tower combines two high-performance woofers that operate in the same frequency domain, allowing them to provide a lush, thick midrange and the ever-important bass fullness, which is unique in the floorstanding speaker category. Thanks to carefully selected components, custom driver development and evolved hard-wired crossovers, this tower manages to achieve symbiotic, synergistic and remarkably musical relationships between all of its interconnected parts.
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 be 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
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.
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.
Exclusive Delrin Decoupling Claw
The success of Totem’s acoustic decoupling Claw on other towers made it appealing to include but the associated costs were prohibitive for the price point.
A new version featuring a high-density Delrin machined composite achieved the cost target and succeeds in breaking up standing waves and controlling surface resonance, tightening bass, and heightening the soundstage. These Delrin Claws are fitted with ¼ 20 thread inserts to accommodate optional spikes (not included).
NOT REQUIRED: Bison Towers have been voiced with the claw as is, no spikes, needed nor recommended.
It has been integrated should the rare need for a spike arise, as on a thick carpet to add stability.
