Highlights

Key advantages at a glance
  • 5.1-System zum Anschluss an AV-Receiver
  • Vier rasant gestylte Hochglanzsäulen aus Aluminium
  • Kalotten-Hochtöner mit Waveguide für breite Hörzone
  • Subwoofer spielt linear bis 30 Hz
  • Geeignet für Räume bis 35 m²

Das Columa 700 ist ein Heimkino-Set für Kunden, die inspirierte, moderne, mutige Produktgestaltung zu schätzen wissen. Die gehobene Ansprüche an ihr Wohnambiente haben und nicht einsehen, bei der Wahl des Lautsprechers diesbezüglich Abstriche zu machen.

Dieses offensiv gestaltete 5.1-Lautsprecher-System erfüllt mit seinen rasant geschwungenen Gestaltungselementen diesen formalen Anspruch ohne mit der Wimper zu zucken. Vor allem aber ohne klangliche Kompromisse. Hier heißt es nicht: Design oder Sound. Sondern: Design und Sound.

Betrieben an einem handelsüblichen AV-Receiver sorgt das Columa 700 für den Spitzenklang, den Sie von einem Teufel-Set erwarten dürfen. Die in intensiven Arbeitssitzungen der Entwickler akribisch abgestimmten Säulenlautsprecher aus Aluminium-Guß realisieren eine absolut präzise, extrem transparente und sehr dynamische Wiedergabe. Durch den integrierten Waveguide des Hochtöners erfahren auch Personen außerhalb des optimalen Sitzplatzes uneingeschränktes Hörvergnügen - Ergebnis einer breiten und gleichmäßigen Abstrahlung.

Diese Technologie findet sich natürlich auch beim querliegenden Center wieder, da er über die gleichen Chassis in identischer Anordnung wie die Säulen verfügt - eine unerlässliche Grundlage für rundherum harmonischen Surroundklang.
   
Basstechnisch erfährt das Set kräftige Unterstützung durch einen formal und akustisch angepassten Subwoofer mit geschwungenen Seitenpassagen.

Ein abwärts strahlender, langhubiger 250 mm-Tieftöner erzeugt in Verbindung mit der 150 Watt Sinus-Endstufe (200 Watt Musikleistung) im Bassreflex-Gehäuse einen bemerkenswert straffen und tiefen Bass. 30 Hertz untere Grenzfrequenz sind in dieser Klasse eine beeindruckende Leistung.

Die mitgelieferte Fernbedienung gestattet die bequeme Einstellung des Pegels und der Übergangsfrequenz vom Hörplatz aus.

In Verbindung mit einem AV-Receiver stellt das Columa 700 in Räumen bis 35 Quadratmetern eine sehr ansprechende Heimkino-Lösung für Kunden dar, denen moderne Optik und Akustik gleichermaßen wichtig sind.

Der querformatige Center CL 70 C eignet sich perfekt zur Platzierung unter oder über einem (Flach-) Bildschirm.

Die Kombinationen aus zwei Mitteltönern und Hochtöner mit Waveguide sorgt für ein breites und konstantes Abstrahlverhalten, so dass auch auf weniger optimalen Hörplätzen ein sehr gutes Dialogverständnis gewährleistet ist.

Da die verwendeten Lautsprecherchassis denen der Säulen CL 70 FR entsprechen, ist ein rundherum harmonischer Surroundklang garantiert.

Der mitgelieferte Tischfuß sorgt für einen sicheren Stand in der Nähe des TV.

Diese rasant gestalteten Säulen stellen den ersten optischen Blickfang des Columa 700 dar. Ihre dynamische Anmutung spiegelt sich in der Art der akustischen Wiedergabe.

Ein spezieller Waveguide des Hochtöners garantiert eine extrem breite und gleichmäßige Abstrahlung, so dass auch Personen außerhalb des optimalen Sitzplatzes uneingeschränktes Hörvergnügen erfahren. Zwei breitbandig agierende Mitteltöner wurden direkt darunter angeordnet und ergänzen den Tweeter passgenau.

Das Gehäuse aus Aluminium-Guss ist mit seinem dreieckigen Fußelement akustisch und optisch ein wahrer Geniestreich und ermöglicht durch massive, vergoldete Klemmen den Anschluss von Kabeln bis 6 qmm Durchmesser.

Specifications

Subwoofer CL 700 SW
Subwoofer CL 700 SW
In the active/passive Columa 700 (without ‘R’ = without a receiver), the CL 700 SW is employed as an active subwoofer. A down-firing long-throw 250 mm bass driver is combined with a 150 watt RMS amplifier (200 watts of music power) in the bass reflex housing to produce remarkably tight bass frequencies right down to 30 Hertz. The subwoofer delivers sufficient bass power to fill rooms up to 35 m² in size.

The system ships with a remote control for setting the volume level and crossover frequency directly from the listening spot.

"An earth-shattering bass."
Wired 08/2009

The Columa's enormous subwoofer has no HDMI input, but does have an optical link. It's an intensely bassy system, coping well with low, rumbly sub-bass as well as punchy explosions.

"The Bentley Of Bluetooth Audio"
Bit Rebels 01/2013
"I know there are many others out there that provide the ability to dock your Apple iPod, connect to FM radio or even stream audio content using Bluetooth wireless technology.
But there’s no other product out there that comes anywhere near the superior sound quality of the iTeufel Magnum.
The iTeufel Magnum is the perfect example of how portability can marry with superb sound quality to create what can only be described as the ‘Bentley’ of audio systems."

"Powerful sounding multitalent"
MACLIFE 3/2012
"This sound system's goal is to be a combination of an AM/FM radio, Bluetooth audio provider and iPod dock with special emphasis on outstanding sound playback. The device (with its solid 5.1 kilo weight) provides bass that is out of the ordinary, thanks to the 13 cm bass reflex, Down-fire subwoofer. The rest of the frequency range is delivered by the two-way speakers. The sound build is solid and sounds good even in the high ranges - happily, the amplifier ably handles this."

Help regarding this product
Can I order the Teufel speakers in different colours than those offered?
To realise the very reasonable sales prices usual for Teufel, it is not possible to offer the speakers in a multitude of housing designs.

This circumstance would drive up the production and storage costs, which would result in a significantly more expensive sales price.

A paint shop in your vicinity will surely be able to repaint the speaker housing to your preferred colour without loss of warranty - after expiry of the eight-week right of return.
Which cables do I need to connect a Teufel speaker set to the AV Receiver?
A home cinema system needs speaker cables to connect the satellite speakers to the receivers, and an NF mono RCA cable to connect the active subwoofer to the sub out socket of the AV Receiver.
When can I use the rear speakers as direct speakers?
If you aren't able to position the speakers close to the wall as described above, you should use the them as direct speakers. For this purpose the rear switch should be tipped outwards. For use as direct speakers, the rear boxes should be set up to the left and right of the listening position - ideally at the same height, e.g. on a shelf or preferably on a base. If the speakers have to be set up so that they are much higher or lower, it may be advisable to align them to the listening point. For wall mounting it is best to use wall brackets that allow for vertical movement. When using the speakers in direct speaker mode, we recommend that the distance between the two rear speakers exceeds the listening position by 1m. But if you (have to) sit closer, please make sure that the front of the speaker is not pointing directly at you; instead, angle the speakers more into the room.
Do I also have a 6.1/7.1 playback for a 5.1 recording?
Usually, all 6.1/7.1 AV Receivers can generate a 6.1/7.1 playback from a 5.1 recording. The procedure is comparable with the Dolby Pro Logic Decoder, which generates a matrix circuit from the stereo signal of a centre channel.

The AV Receivers thus generate a rear centre channel from the rear R/L channels of a 5.1 recording through the matrix circuit. The stronger the rear R/L effects on the DVD, the stronger the signal from the rear centre.
Can I connect the LT 4 directly to a DVD player or PC?
No.

The LT 4 is a partially active system that requires AV receiver operation. It has a built-in amplifier that only supplies bass tones in the subwoofer housing That is why an "AV Receiver", i.e. a combination of radio receiver and multichannel amplifier, is essential for using the LT 4.

The subwoofer is connected from the Line In R input to the AV receiver's sub out jack using a mono RCA cable, while the three front satellites are connected to the three speaker outputs of the AV Receiver using the speaker cable and are supplied with power from there.

Connect signal-emitting source appliances such as DVD player or PC etc. directly to the corresponding input jacks on the AV Receiver.
When would it be worth upgrading my 5.1 system to 6.1/7.1 sound?
Naturally 5.1 channel systems that play back all of the sound tracks contained on the DVDs already offer an excellent home cinema experience.

For the new 6.1 or 7.1 sound formats, a rear centre channel is controlled in addition to these channels. This channel, coded in the stereo effect channels, enables the better positioning of effects and music signals directly behind where you are sitting.

If using two speakers for the rear centre channel, the optimal seating position is not tailored to an individually specified position, i.e. you don't have to be seated in the exact centre.

In the following cases we would recommend upgrading to a 6.1 or 7.1 system:

• Your sitting position is not always dead centre, or you often have several viewers

• You have had a 5.1 system for a very long time and would like an improvement

• Your AV amplifier/receiver is designed as a 6.1 or 7.1 receiver and offers the corresponding connection possibilities

• You can also set up one and/or two rear centres. If you are currently building/renovating your house or flat, we would recommend you lay the cables for the additional rear centre channels in any case.

• Modern BluRay players usually issue a true 7.1 surround sound signal at all digital outputs and are thus optimally suitable - presuming the relevant AV Receiver - as a signal transmitter for a 7.1 channel home cinema system.
How do I upgrade my system to a 6.1 or 7.1 sound format?
The choice of speaker(s) depends on the AV Receiver/amplifier. This has an additional power amplifier for one rear centre (6.1) or its two (7.1). You can easily see this by the wattage (e.g. 6 x 100 watt or 7 x 100 watt). To the existing (side) rear speakers for right/left (5.1 technology), one or two additional rear centres are utilised in addition (6.1 or 7.1 technology).

• My AV amplifier/receiver has six connections/power amplifiers (6.1):

In this case we recommend connecting the same centre at the rear that you also used in the front area.

• My AV amplifier/receiver has 7 connections/power amplifiers (7.1):

If you already use dipoles or direct emitters for your 5.1 system, then you have a choice of either supplementing two more dipoles or two direct emitters. For wall assembly and a short distance from the seating location to the rear wall (less than 1.00 metres), we would recommend dipoles. As soon as you want to set up the speakers on bases or on a shelf, then direct emitters would be the better choice.

Information:
Even if the AV Receiver/amplifier only has the connection and power amplifier performance for one rear centre, it is still possible to connect two instead of just one speaker through series connection.

Exception:
• The AV amplifier/receiver has seven connections/power amplifiers, but I can only set up one rear centre. As the 7.1 AV amplifiers/receiver also offer the option of operating just one of the two outputs (usually can be set in the speaker set-up!), you can also only connect just one rear centre.

Here we recommend connecting the same centre to the rear that you also used in the front area. For short distances to the listening location (less than 1.00 metres), a dipole would be the better choice - especially if you are also using dipoles at the sides.
Is it a problem if the speakers are at different distances to where you are sitting?
Since the distance and volume of every individual speaker can be adjusted for the digital home cinema receivers, asymmetrical set-ups can be easily compensated. 
How do I equalise my home cinema system with the help of a sound level meter?
Take the level meter with you to the listening position and point the measuring device directly towards the front centre speaker. Now start the sound generator of the receiver (or of the sound card or DVD player) and equalise all speakers in succession to the same level.

The position and alignment of the measuring device should not be changed during this procedure. For a Teufel sound level meter, proceed as detailed in the following:

1. Remove the protective tab from the battery.

2. Set the weighting to "A" - only the "A" position considers the full frequency range during measuring!

3. Set the response to Slow.

4. Set the Range to 70.

5. Start the test noise from your AV device.

6. Change the volume for every individual channel at the AV device so that the level meter shows 75 dB (meaning between +4 and +6).

7. Done!
What is the difference between the 5.1 and 7.1 configuration?
Compared with the 5.1 set, the 7.1 set has two extra speakers for the back rear centre channel.

The 5.1 channel set plays back all sound tracks on DVDs/Blu-rays and creates an excellent home cinema experience.

With the 7.1 sound format, a rear centre channel is also generated in addition to these channels and distributed to two further speakers (the "rear centre"). This channel, which is encoded in the stereo effects channels, allows better location of effects and music signals directly behind the sitting position.

If you use two speakers for the rear centre channel (i.e. installed 7.1 set), the optimum sitting position is not restricted to one specific place, so you don't have to be sitting exactly in the middle and several listeners can enjoy the best sound.
Where is the optimal place for the centre of my Lautsprecher Teufel Surround System in a 5.1/6.1/7.1 configuration?
Because the centre plays back spoken dialogue, this speaker must be positioned as centrally as possible under or over the TV/monitor or the screen.

If the centre is placed outside the area of 40 centimetres to 1.20 meter height, it should be slightly inclined or angled towards the listener.


My subwoofer is humming. What can I do?
This hum can be caused by the connected devices or disruptions in your electricity current. Please do a test to see which it is.

1. Remove the RCA cable from the input on the subwoofer. If the hum is no longer heard, go to point B. Otherwise, follow point A.

A. Attach the net cable of the subwoofer to another electricity outlet (i.e. Kitchen/Bathroom/Bedroom). If the subwoofer still hums, get in contact with our Support team.

Should the hum no longer be there, the disruption was a problem in your power supply, which can, for instance, be caused by dimmers or chargers. To find out where the disruption is, unplug all your devices and work back from there. As soon as the hum is heard, you now know your source of the disruption.

B. In your case, the "ground hum" is responsible for the disruption. Please proceed as follows to discover your source.

  • Disconnect the cable or satellite port from the TV Receiver and check if the hum disappears or not. If it does, you can use a sheath current filter for the cable outlet to prevent this. For example, the sheath current filter AC 9022 ED. If you have a satellite connection, connect the Satellite Receiver to the optical cable playback source - Teufel Optical Digital Cable

  • If this reason can be excluded, separate all devices from the AV Receiver one at a time until the hum stops. The last connected device is then your hum source and should be separated from the others using a galvanic separation filter (found in a retail shop)

  • If this doesn't work, get in contact with us once again so that we can give an individual, helpful response.
Do I need the same cable length for all speakers?
In our experience, there is no acoustical difference for different cable lengths for lengths up to 15 metres.
The RAMPA insert at the bottom of the speaker sometimes is turned out with the tamping screw. What can I do about that?
Unscrew the tamping screw from the Rampa insert and screw the Rampa insert back into the bottom of the speaker.
