Warranty

All Totem products are created with the utmost care and quality in mind. If you have any problem with a Totem Acoustic product, please consult the product manual, Speaker Know-how page and the Return & Refund and Repair & Replacement policies on this website. Totem will not be liable and will not replace any product that has been damaged due to ill-treatment or lack of proper care.

Totem Acoustic Inc. warrants to the original retail purchaser only that this Totem Acoustic product will be free from defects in materials and workmanship. Defective products must be shipped, along with proof of purchase, prepaid insured to Totem Acoustic, along with a return address slip from this website, which can be printed after completing the Return Order form. It is preferable to ship the product in its original shipping container to lessen the chance of transit damage. In any case, the risk of loss or damage in transit must be borne by the purchaser.

If, upon examination at the Totem Acoustic Factory, it is determined that the unit was defective in materials or workmanship at any time during this warranty period, Totem Acoustic will, at its discretion, repair or replace this product at no extra charge, except as set forth below. If the speaker cannot be repaired effectively, Totem Acoustic may, at its sole discretion, replace the unit. All replaced parts and products become the property of Totem Acoustic Inc.

Products replaced or repaired under this warranty will be returned — freight prepaid — to the original retail purchaser within a reasonable time. This warranty does not include service or parts for the purpose of repairing any damage caused by accident, disaster, misuse, abuse, negligence, inadequate packing or shipping procedures, commercial use, voltage inputs in excess of the rated maximum of the unit, or service, repairs or product modifications that have not been authorized or approved by Totem Acoustic. This warranty also excludes normal cosmetic deterioration caused by environmental conditions.

This warranty will be void if the serial number on the product has been removed, tampered with or defaced. This warranty is in lieu of all other expressed warranties.

Some U.S. states and Canadian provinces or territories do not allow the exclusion or limitation of consequential damages, so the above limitation and exclusion may not apply. All implied warranties on the product are limited to the duration of this expressed warranty. Some U.S. states and Canadian provinces or territories do not allow any limitations on the length of an implied Warranty. If the original retail purchaser resides in such a state, province or territory, this limitation does not apply.

Warning
Important technical note
Please read before operating speakers. The warranty on speakers is void if the voice coils are burned or damaged as a result of overpowering or clipping.

Overpowering
The volume control of most amplifiers and receivers is a logarithmic type, which means that full-rated power may be reached with the volume control at as little as the halfway point. In addition, operating the loudness feature or boosting the treble or bass controls increases power output well beyond rated levels. Due to these factors, a 30-watt amplifier can produce distorted output levels of over 100 watts and may damage your loudspeakers.

Clipping
Clipping refers to the power level at which an amplifier begins to distort a waveform by flattening its top and bottom into a square wave-shape. When fed to tweeters and/or midrange speakers, this may result in exceeding their maximum power handling capacity, causing damage to the speaker voice coil. Clipping can be identified by fuzz or distorted sound. If this is heard, lower the volume immediately to prevent any damage to your system. Continuous clipping will damage or burn out the speakers.
