The Sttaf is Totem’s answer to customer requests for an affordable floorstanding model.
The 36-inch-tall mahogany Sttafs are rectangular prisms. The driver complement includes 5-inch polypropylene woofers and 1-inch soft dome tweeters. The speakers rest freely upon black wooden bases that accept carpet-piercing spikes. Each Sttaf has two holes on its veneered back panel. The upper hole is a port. The lower hole is an access for sand-filling the bottom portion of the cabinet. Once the speakers have been optimally placed, they can be secured to their bases with wads of putty included with the speakers. I set up the Totems away from room boundaries with various degrees of toe-in.
