Redline has announced that it is now the official distributor for Custom Install loudspeaker range Canadian manufacturer Totem Acoustic. The brand, which came to prominence in 1989 with the Totem Acoustic Model One, has expanded its traditional Hi-Fi range with a wide range of custom install specific models.

The company is now working jointly with Joenit, a distribution outfit based in Belgium, which has been the Totem distributor into the UK and Benelux regions since the late 1990s.

Joenit will continue handling the hi-fi products and have access to the Custom Install range, however, the main thrust for the integrated speakers will come through Redline, but with access to the hi-fi range on request.

“The whole team is really excited to be able to offer this new opportunity to our customers. The Totem Custom Install range delivers that very rare animal: integrated speakers with genuine character, soul and a real feel for music,” says Martin Morecroft, Redline Sales Director and company founder. “Choosing the integrated option is no longer a compromise on the sound, it really is the very best of both worlds.”

The Totem Custom Install family comprises Kin architectural in-ceiling speakers, Kin in-wall/in-ceiling speakers, Kin surface mount speakers and in-room subwoofers, Tribe in-wall subs and full range speakers, Tribe on-wall speakers and matching on-wall subs.
Each speaker follows the design ethos and musicalility of company founder Vince Bruzzese, with all the drivers built in-house.

The install method is conventional on all the in-wall and architectural speakers. Speakers have high torque nylon dog legs that can cope with double layer board.

The Architectural speakers sport stainless steel grilles, optional back cans for noise reduction and a pre-construction kit that helps line-up speakers off joists.

“Specifying this range into modern interiors with more hard surfaces than traditional homes is never a problem. The speakers still sound sweet and clean without being bright or harsh,” says the distributor. “All the speakers have an amazing ability to spread sound with a unique spatial soundscape. All the speakers sound much bigger than you would expect given the dimensions.”

“In a world of me-too products, it’s great to be able to offer something that installers can use to genuinely add value and character. Totem will never be a global power-house of a brand, they don’t want to be, and that is where the relationship with the install community can really flourish, offering customers something they simply cannot get elsewhere.

Totem is a brand with a glorious heritage, and they have been successful at transposing all of their abilities into the Custom InstalI line. For us, it’s an absolute pleasure dealing with Vince and his team. Get in touch and join us on this wonderful journey into better sounding homes.”
