Showcased at ISE 2016 this week in Amsterdam, it’s the first sealed speaker cabinet from the company, which has been making ported versions for years. Flex can be placed almost anywhere: mounted vertically, horizontally, atop a shelf or stand, on a wall, even a ceiling ….
The cabinet is slightly tilted in the front, so if it is wall-mounted it can be aimed upward to reflect off the ceiling or pointed downwards for optimal diffraction.
At CEDIA Expo last October, the speakers were used as Atmos channels.
“The placement doesn’t affect sound,” says Lucy Lentini, VP sales and marketing for Totem.
A universal bracket that comes with the speaker accommodates universal placement, allowing dealers to direct the sound wherever optimal.
Lentini says the Flex, which pairs with Totem KIN Min Subs, is Totem’s answer to the ubiquitous soundbar, which the company so far has refused to make.
“We just couldn’t do it,” Lentini says. “It goes against everything we stand for.”
