Discover the new TOTEM KIN
Discover the new TOTEM KIN for a total In-Wall and In-Ceiling experience.
In store: January 2013
Totem is proud to introduce the new KIN SERIES. The runaway success of the TRIBE In-Wall and In-Ceiling proved beyond any doubt that emotional and musical sound could be achieved from enclosed architectural speakers. With the KIN, our challenge was to create an even more compact and affordable version that would keep on revolutionizing architectural sound applications.
To accomplish this high level scenario, advanced radical material and construction techniques were systematically tested, developed and further employed to achieve this lofty ambition. Using revolutionary materials that minimize crossover parts while maximizing the overall integrity and quality, the KIN is a true alternative for In-Wall/In-Ceiling solutions.
Made with interrelated proprietary woofers and tweeters, like the high-performance MHEX cone woofers and the hyper extending dome tweeters, the KIN offers accurate sound staging phase correctness.
In conjunction with the TRIBE In Wall/In Room Subwoofers The KIN is capable of outperforming pricy freestanding speakers. Fit for any musical genre, the KIN’s sound precision and full spectrum projection, allows for a deeper emotional connection with the music. Designed to expand the musical experience, the new KIN is truly an authentic TOTEM speaker .
