Totem Hawk Floorstanding Speakers - Deep Mahogany Finish
479 South Broad Street
Glen Rock NJ 07452
Offered in a gorgeous mahogany finish, working perfectly with very light signs of use.
Sounding perfect and incredibly "huge" for their size. No wonder these are so popular!
Plus they offer features normally seen in pricier speakers, such as monocoque cross-braced cabinet design with ultra-expensive borosilicate damping.
These speakers come complete with the optional aluminum feet and fabric grills. Both speakers will also ship in their original Totem boxes with the manual for safe transport.

Bespoke Acoustic Engineering
Every single driver is completely unique to Totem and proprietary in design, engineered by Totem and then manufactured to the strictest standards to meet our parameters by the finest raw driver suppliers in the world. In some cases, where the technology is beyond the capabilities of suppliers or is wished to kept secret, Totem can and will build our own drivers. Every driver exhibits phase linearity, speed, emotion, off axis natural presentation, and spatial articulation.
With Point-to-Point Connections
Totem crossovers don’t require many parts because of the synergy between our customized drivers, but the components are the world’s best. Our crossovers aren’t built on PCB’s because the laminated conductive tracks are weak and inconsistent. Instead they are secured to a thin piece of fiberboard or insulated polymers and components are mechanically crimped together because it simply sounds better. When we must solder, we choose WBT Silver Solder, the purest in the industry.
Artisanal Cabinet Construction
Master Craftsman Woodwork
Meticulously hand crafted for peak performance that lasts decades. Lock-Miter assembly is an intricate woodworking procedure where edges physically interlock together. The resulting cabinet is up to 5 times stronger than conventional V Groove cabinets. Internal and external veneering resists warping, structurally fortifies, and ensures consistent peak performance. Industry unique Borosilicate damping manages dissipation, keeps the cabinet musically alive, and never deteriorates. Popular materials like poly fillers eventually decay, dramatically affecting the performance. Variable Density Fiberboard is denser at the extremities than the interior to reduce repetitive nodes and resonances.
WBT Bi-Wire / Bi-Amp
Premium WBT connectors are the preferred choice by all audiophiles. WBT connectors lets the signal through without interfering or affecting it. Superior connectors like WBT connectors will prevent any signal loss and get the most out of the entire system.
Machined from solid aluminum, the unique geometric shape breaks up surface standing waves and controls surface resonance as it acoustically decouples the speaker. Can be used with or without ball bearing, depending on surface. It provides improved bass response and imaging.

The SkyFi Testing Process for Speakers:
Our speaker evaluation process starts with a visual inspection of all drivers. We are looking for damaged or deteriorating woofer surrounds, dented tweeter domes, and cone damage. We also inspect the speaker connection points for loose or broken connectors.
After the initial visual inspection we connect the speakers to a reference amplifier with our preferred test tracks. With the speakers placed with proper distance we listen to each driver to make sure that they are producing the intended frequencies with no signs of distortion or rattle. During listening tests with test tracks we check for proper stereo imaging and bass response at various listening levels. If there are any audible signs of issues, the speakers are taken to the bench where we perform a frequency sweep to isolate the issue so that it can be resolved by component repair or replacement.
