Help regarding this product
In the manual of my Teufel Impaq 8000 receiver it says that I should use speaker cables with at least 1.5 mm² width. However, cables with 1.0 mm² are included with the product. What is the correct size to use?
There is an error in the operating instructions. We apologise for this. You can use cables from 1.0 mm² width to connect the Impaq receiver to your speakers in this system.
I would like to make my Impaq 8000 receiver WiFi enabled using the WiFi Link USB Adapter from Teufel. How does this work?
The WiFi Link USB Adapter from Teufel is compatible with the Impaq 8000. Here’s how it works:
  1. Adjust the antenna on the adapter so that it’s in a 90° position
  2. Insert the adapter into the USB port on the back of the Impaq
  3. Follow the following path in the Impaq menu: “Network” > “Connection type” > “WiFi settings” (The WiFi menu will only be available if “WiFi” has been selected under “Connection type”)
  4. After opening the menu, a warning appears that the existing network connection will be disconnected. Select “yes” and press the OK button.
  5. The next menu offers three setup options:
    • Search – Displays all existing access points
    • Manual – Manual connection procedure, for instance with access points that are not automatically recognized
    • Automatic – Connection via Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS)

Select the desired option by using the navigation buttons ▲▼◀▶ and then select “continue.” Confirm by using the “OK” button.
The notification "No disc“ appears on the display on my Impaq 8000 receiver even though a CD/DVD/BD was inserted. What could be the reason for this?
Try inserting another disc. If this is recognized, it could be that the original disc was damaged, dirty, incompatible or incorrectly inserted.
My Impaq 8000 receiver no longer starts. The display doesn’t light up. What should I do?
Check the power connection. You may want to try using a different power outlet. It’s also possible that a fuse has blown. Try changing the fuse. You’ll find the compartment for the fuse on back of the device where the power cord connects.
I would like to adjust the sound signature. How should I proceed?
It’s possible to adjust the treble and the bass in the sound signature. In addition, the Impaq receiver offer sound effects. You’ll find more information in the user manual.
The display is illuminated but I can’t hear any sound. What could be the reason for this?
The following checklist should be referred to whenever no sound is heard after starting playback on a device that has been switched on:
  • Check that the proper source has been selected.
  • Is the device on mute? Press the mute button on your remote control.
  • Turn the volume dial in case the volume has been set too low.
  • Check to ensure that the speaker cables have been properly connected.
My Bluetooth speaker produces a lesser quality sound with my Windows PC or laptop.
It could be that the speaker is connected as a device with speakerphone function. Please go to: settings menu > devices and printer > BOOMSTER (or other Bluetooth device). Right click on the device and remove the check mark next to the “speakerphone” option.
How must I set the impedance selector switch of my receiver for Teufel speakers?
Here is more detailed information from the AUDIOVISION trade magazine (Issue 4/03) on the subject of impedance settings of the AV Receiver:

Actually, it should be quite simple: Connect the speaker cable to the amplifier and speakers with the correct polarity and you're done. Unfortunately, many manufacturers of home cinema receivers put stumbling blocks out for the users in the form of specifications on the rear of the device and/or in the operating instructions. These usually look like the following (translations): Minimum connection impedance six ohm! Or, speaker impedance six to eight ohm. And what is the problem? There are hardly any six ohm and only a few eight ohm speakers available in Germany. Most of the speakers sold in Germany have a nominal impedance of four ohm. So theoretically, you shouldn't connect them to most of the receivers and amplifiers.

To explain why it is possible after all, we would like to briefly explain the electrical engineering principles: The impedance of a speaker is nothing other than its electrical resistance which it puts up against the flow of current.

• Low resistance = high current
• High resistance = low current

Important to know for operation with an amplifier is that the impedance is not the same for all frequencies but can, for example, change between 50 and 200 hertz by 50 percent. So it isn't entirely correct to speak of impedance for a speaker per se, rather one must always consider the behaviour across the entire range between 20 and 20,000 hertz. To still achieve a reasonable connection value for amplifiers (which, by the way, says nothing about the output impedance of the amplifier itself but rather only which impedances may be connected to it), the creators of the DIN Standard have applied the following stratagem: Only the minimum value of the impedance in the audible range is decisive for the nominal impedance value. This is where the most current flows and the amplifier is subjected to the highest load. Speakers with eight ohm nominal impedance may only exhibit a minimum of 6.4 ohm, and those with four ohm nominal impedance 3.2 ohm. Six ohm are not defined in the DIN (which is applied internationally), but one could use the above values to interpolate that they may exhibit a minimum of 4.8 ohm.

From the definition it is apparent that the nominal impedance is only a rough benchmark, because it says nothing about how the entire course of the impedance looks. No matter whether it only reaches less than 6.4 ohm at one point and is otherwise beyond that, or if the impedance moves close to 3.2 ohm across the entire range, but does not drop below that. The last speaker is surely much more stressful for the amplifier, but has just a nominal impedance of four ohm as the other higher ohm one.

Conventional speakers usually exhibit one to two minima in the bass range, and there is one frequently in the treble range. These minimum values are usually not especially broadband. Aside from the minima, the impedance is usually far higher than the nominal impedance. The amplifiers are really stressed in the bass range because firstly, this is where the most energy is for music and especially the home cinema sound, and secondly, they have to let the most current flow through the impedance minima here.

And lastly, the main reason why many manufacturers don't want four ohm speakers to be connected: In extreme cases - for deep frequencies of consistently 3.2 ohm - the amplifiers in multichannel operation become very hot. A lot of current also means a lot of power loss and thus at lot of waste heat. However, much has to come together before that happens - namely high performance for a longer period of time and setting up the device without sufficient ventilation.

But this extreme case is seldom met in practice. As mentioned above, most of the speakers are not as critical by far, and it is extremely rare to listen to an exorbitant volume for a longer period of time. That is why it is not a problem from a technical point of view to connect speakers with four ohm nominal impedance to all modern home cinema amplifiers and receivers.

However, there is one small catch: The question of warranty. Should a defect occur to the device - which doesn't even have to do anything with the speakers - and the manufacturer notices that four ohm speakers were connected despite the specifications to the contrary, he could refuse repairs due to improper use. As discussions with manufacturers and distributors have shown, this is highly unlikely because they are also aware of the problems.

And for purely legal reasons, Lautsprecher Teufel may not give you a warranty either that your amplifier or receiver will tolerate four ohm speakers. We can only pass along one experience: For several years, the listening tests of the trade magazines are done exclusively with four ohm speakers, and not a single defect has occurred as yet even though the devices are driven to their limits. Also, the performance of each device is usually measured at four and eight ohm irrespective of the specifications of the manufacturers, and the load here is also considerable. It has been a long time since measurement laboratories have seen failures due to to low load impedance.

There are still some special cases, which should be briefly mentioned: Amplifiers/receivers with impedance switches give cautious natures the possibility to stay on the safe side under all possible conditions, even with the warranty. The four ohm setting of the corresponding switch reduces the supply voltage of the power amplifiers so much that excessive heat cannot occur even under unfavourable circumstances. However, the maximum power is then reduced somewhat.

During the listening tests of the trade magazine, these devices are always switched to the "eight ohm" setting to tease out the maximum performance reserves. A defect here has yet to occur. When choosing devices, take a close look because there are devices that only permit speakers with a minimum of six ohm despite the impedance selector switch, like the Pioneer VSX-D2011, for example. This is remarkable in another respect: It possesses a THXSelect license. This license is only issued if certain measured values are complied with that are determined at four ohm for at least the front and centre speakers.

If the THX laboratory had proceeded according to manufacturer's specifications, the VSX-D2011 would never have received a licence, as it would not have been permitted to perform the necessary measurements. By the way: this is also the case for other THX Select devices. But you needn't worry here: The THX logo not only offers additional security, but also a good lever should a manufacturer once refuse a warranty.

The AUDIOVISION TIP

Overheating is the main problem that can occur through the combination of four ohm speakers with power amplifiers that are not released for this.
Therefore, in case of doubt:

• Always set up the AV Receiver or amplifier in well ventilated places and never in a closed housing or close to the heater.

• Occasionally check the temperature of the device.

• Reroute the bass elements via set-up at the subwoofer, if possible.
I would like to connect the appliance to a record player, is that possible?
In principle, yes.

However, for a record player an additional phono preamplifier is required - these are available from specialist retailers for around €50.
What are the technical requirements for an AV receiver to function with RearStation 4?
The AV receiver must be able to send signals to the rear channels via a pair of cinch terminals. Generally these terminals will be identified as Side, Rear, or Left/Right. It is often also possible to "activate" channels on specific terminals by means of the AV receiver menu.
