Highlights
Description
Floor Speaker UL 800
In our 30th year, Teufel presents the Ultima 800, a system that showcases our combined years of loudspeaker experience bundled into one product. The Ultima 800 is uncompromisingly high-end – but still so practical as only a Teufel product can be.

Materials + Knowledge
The Ultima 800 impresses as a HiFi stereo standing loudspeaker, that has no peer when combined with its fantastic materials and constructive finesse.

The tweeter
A disproportionately large (33 mm!), cloth tweeter with neodymium magnet and extra long hub provides an absolutely compression free and low-fatigue playback at the highest frequencies.

The mid range drivers
A 10 cm wide mid-range driver with a pure titanium membrane and neodymium magnet guarantees a wide beam behaviour and excellent stability over the entire assigned frequency range with its concave form.

The woofer
You have a total of six woofers in the Ultima 800. Two active and four passive Rohacell carbon sandwich woofers (each a fantastic 170 mm) achieve the best playback through a double-layered material mix and klippel optimisation.

The frequency crossover
The sustain control circuitry is one of the highlights of the Ultima 800 – and here only the most elite of components are used: durable film capacitors and distortion-free air coils that avoid the microphonic effects. This highly-bred frequency crossover significantly assists the linearity by +- 1 dB over the entire frequency range.

The housing
This still-moderately sized speaker (43 liters) surprises through its high weight of over 31 kilos – caused also in part by an extremely massive housing that comes in high-gloss black or walnut. The tapered form of the sound wall eliminates the run-time differences between the high and midrange tones for optimal playback. A secure stand is achieved through the steel construction of four spikes. You’ll usually only find a speaker with a refined appearance of this sort in the five-digit price range…

The Extras
The Ultima 800 has four passive woofers cast in the lower frequency range instead of a traditional bass reflex opening. The benefits of this well thought-out solution for you are: higher level strengths, no unwanted mid-range frequencies from the reflex tube and the option of individual settings.

Bass-Alignment
Through the four-stage adaption of the rear passive membranes, these precious pieces of loudspeaker treasure can be customised to different spaces and amplifiers (damping factor!) These crucial influences are then much easier to handle. The Ultima 800 owner has room to experiment.

High end
With the Ultima 800 Teufel presents a high end loudspeaker that doesn’t just sound better but also significantly raises the bar in terms of affordable high-end stereo transducers. Through this, the bass alignment is also guaranteed so that the boxes always play optimally.

"The Ultima 800 goes loud, does dynamics and stereo imagery in a convincing and meaningful way and yet at low volume levels it still sings with considerable subtlety and poise. And being able to return them within the first eight weeks for a full refund is a real confidence booster, as well as helping negate the disadvantage of not being able to audition them at your local hi-fi store."

"In the flesh, the Ultima 800 is an absolute, unqualified knockout. Relatively compact and not excessively tall, given its flagship status and price, it is nevertheless heavy and solidly built as the rap knuckle test quickly confirms.

The internal structure includes a separate sub-enclosure for the midrange dome and the main cabinet has an internal shelf brace about half-way up. Finally, the external presentation of the enclosure (walnut veneer on all visible surfaces, other than the front-facing baffles which are black), is first-rate, not least thanks to the high-grade, deep-gloss finish."

"What is not in doubt is the Ultima 800's musical integrity. It goes loud, does dynamics and stereo imagery in a convincing and meaningful way and yet at low volume levels it still sings with considerable subtlety and poise.

And being able to return them within the first eight weeks for a full refund is a real confidence booster, as well as helping negate the disadvantage of not being able to audition them at your local hi-fi store."

Overall: 5 out of 5 stars!

"Teufel's Ultima 800 makes a big statement. It is compact, attractive, very well constructed and acoustically complete. Its dry, genuine bass is perfectly highlighted by cleanly differentiated mid- and high-range tones. And you won't have to stop your fun short thanks to enormous power and distortion resistance. The Ultima 800 manages to produce exhaustion-free at high volumes for hours."

Measurement technician's comment
"The Ultima 800 performs well in front of the measurement microphone – it has an excellent linear frequency response along with very even round spray properties. Its mid-range sensitivity of 87 dB to 2.83 V is excellent for such a compact box, and its lower frequency border under 50 Hz is persuasive. Its impedance conforms to the norm of 4 Ohm (a minimum of 3.6 Ohm at 45 Hz), and its decay behaviour and THD are exemplary for their cleanliness, especially from the midrange upwards."

Conclusion:
"This is the first speaker I have experienced in this size range – let alone in this price class – which both dissolves sound so intricately and possesses such capabilities when it comes to coarse dynamics. A tip of my hat to Teufel!"

"With rapt attention but no posturing, this new design plays the most demanding classical recordings with captivating tonal and rhythmic accuracy. Many models from leading brands costing twice as much are hardly any better in this regard. In all genuineness, there is no loss of enjoyment. First released in 1975 and now remastered for DVD audio, the Queen album "A Night At The Opera" allowed the Teufel system to demonstrate its pedigree in impressive style. The power rockers have seldom sounded so tantalisingly sleek yet haunting. And if they do, we’re usually talking about much more expensive speakers."

"Standing speaker set with high-quality sound and feel, titanium mid-range drivers and versatile passive membranes. Highly neutral and sensitive sound. Allows you to listen for a long time without stress or fatigue."
