Can do it all, with passion and excitement
Perhaps no speaker truly epitomizes Totem Architectural like the Tribe IW. It is a wonderous example of unparalleled resourcefulness and startling capability, excelling in a wide array of applications while delivering Totem’s extraordinary experience.
TRIBE IW is thoroughly equipped with interrelated proprietary Totem technology. Shockingly powerful, lighting fast bass is presented by Neodymium Actuated Enriched MHEX woofers. Oversized Silk Dome tweeters emit a fluid and impeccably airy presence. This level of engineering allows TRIBE IW to present perfect sound staging and phase correctness for an emotion-filled musicality.
Let the Tribe IW do it all. It can be dynamic main channels, deliver authentic vocals and main action as a center, or supply pinpoint, omnipresent surround effects. TRIBE IW shines at all positions and consistently delivers passion and excitement to all musical genres and video mediums.
- Excels as a main, center, or surround speaker
- Robust steel buttressed framework handles the toughest installations
- Screw cutouts in the framework for flush-to-stud installations where clamps cannot deploy
- Dozens of magnets securely grip the grill preventing resonance and gaps
- Rear-wire management channels
- Integrated wood back box ensures reliable and superior performance
- Shallow design and slim proportions easily fit the majority of wall cavities
- 1 1/8” proprietary Oversized Silk Dome
- Twin 4”/10.16cm Neodymium Actuated Enriched MHEX woofers in oversized die-cast basket
- High-torque angled wall clamps for an even structural tension
Integrated Wood Back Box
Consistency, protection, and sound isolation
Integrated back boxes ensure optimum performance regardless of the wall cavity size or content. Wherever they are installed, they react as if the wall was custom made for them. Metal, plastic, or aluminum enclosures have inherent distortion issues that wood does not. Back boxes also provide substantial sound isolation and protect against materials in the wall that can damage the drivers.
Sound everywhere you want it
TRIBE Architectural diffuse sound in an enormously wide, expansive manner comparable to a flood light and illuminate a room with Totem’s holographic sound. Most others function like a focused, narrow spotlight, creating small acoustic “hot spots”. The dispersion is almost twice that of competitive speakers, so it takes fewer Totem speakers to thoroughly fill a room, and listeners enjoy the same sound whether seated or standing.
Neodymium Actuated Enriched MHEX woofers
Unique driver for an exceptional series
Multiple layers of phenolic honeycomb and woven synthetics are extremely rigid, have sensational transient capabilities, and a pure, flat response in the critical 100Hz to 2.5kHz range. These cones are enriched with a proprietary copolymer that improves strength without adding weight. An inverted dust cap smooths the higher range for a perfect blend to the tweeter. Outsized cast frames resonances allow the largest components tot be implemented for improved force and control. The result is tremendous power handling and incredible bass.
Oversized Silk Dome
The 1 1/8” proprietary dome was designed specifically to mate with Neodymium Actuated Enriched MHEX woofers. It possesses excellent dynamic response, high stability, and can be crossover extremely low for improved dispersion. It is particularly effective in the D’Appolito arrangement of all Tribe models. A remarkable low resonant frequency and Ferro fluid of high liquidity create an effortless brilliance.
Bi-Wire / Bi Amp Gold Plated Banana Plugs
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.
