Aktiv-Subwoofer M 4500 SW

The System 4 is the ideal choice for home cinema or home concert fans who want an extremely compact design but no lack of sound quality in smaller rooms.

Absolute sound performance
The System 4 delivers incredibly powerful performance that sets new standards in its class.

Concert or cinema versions
The two additional speaker units (concert version) or the Dipoles (cinema version) are used to deliver sound to the rear zone.

Incredibly compact

The System 4 by Teufel is essentially a condensed version of the legendary System 5 THX Select. The design of the System 4 is the same as the System 5 THX Select save for its smaller size, use of different chassis and lower maximum volume. The System 4 is thus the ideal choice for home cinema fans who want an extremely compact design but do not want to sacrifice any sound quality in rooms up to 35 sqm.

The System 4 delivers incredibly powerful performance that is setting new standards in its class. The reason for its high performance can be found in the three identical M 450 FCR front speakers whose neodym chassis in THX compatible D'Appollito configuration ensures consistent high sound resolution. All with the smallest dimensions: The front side of an M 450 FCR is not much larger than a DIN A5 sheet of paper!

Included components

  • Satellite Speaker M 450 FCR
  • Dipole Speaker M 450 D
  • Dipole Speaker M 450 D
  • Subwoofer M 4500 SW

The extremely compact M 450 FCR satellite speakers are perfectly suited for all of the channels in a home cinema: Front, centre or rear – these solid, miniature speakers are perfect for each of these roles.

The D’Apollito configuration has been ‘borrowed’ from the THX standard and provides a wide listening range with extremely fine detailing. This is very important for ensuring the intelligibility of speech!

The miniaturised horizontal version of these same speakers is available in a tastefully discreet design with a classy cherry wood finish. The compact cabinet dimensions and understated appearance ensures that these speakers are never obtrusive – much to the contrary, they have been designed to allow for your own specific living requirements.

"Good"
toblip.com 04/2011
"All in all this I have to say that the Aureol Groove in-ear headphones are very good. The quality is very good, the sound is, if you like it bass heavy, absolutely big and with the 3 different ear adapters everyone should find one for the perfect fit."

"Chic little numbers"
T3 12/2010
"Teufel has only recently started making headphones, but it's been making high-end hi-fi for the last 30 years, so it's not exactly a fish out of water. These chic little numbers give clear highs, punchy midrange and a lot more bass than you might expect for the size and price. Three sizes of ear bud mean they'll stay snug in your ears."

"The clincher: Teufel only sells direct, bringing down the price."

"In the end one has to say the Teufel Aureol Groove headphones are worth their money... although headphones with the same qualifications are available, one has to add Teufel's quality into the equation. Because of their exterior quality, we give Teufel's Aureol Groove the ATi-Forum.de Gold Award."

"Amazing detail"
SFT 10/2010
 "With the Aureol Groove Teufel enters new territory. From a recommended price of about 70€ the first impressions of the Berlin Box-experts are 'out of the ordinary' speakers, especially compared to expensive competitors. Cheap to buy. Sound wise Aureol Grooves doesn't need to hide from their more expensive rivals either. The detail is simply outstanding. They are massive, especially on the bass and treble."

"Bullseye!"
Allround-PC 09/2010
"The Aureol Groove earbud headphones do more than hold their own when it comes to sound quality. Bass is solid and clear... compared with the Wavemaster Pure earbuds, which are basically in the same price category, it's noticeably more transparent. Their noise-isolating effects work well even in loud environments... thanks to their in-ear technology, exterior sound is hardly noticeable."

Conclusion
"Teufel has hit a bullseye with its first in-ear headphones. Years of experience in acoustics are paying off through the Aureol Groove earbuds. The headphones are convincing across the board..."

"Premium quality headphones with a powerful, clear and detailed sound"
Area DVD 09/2010
"Teufel made a huge gamble with Aureol Groove, and it panned out. Elegant and of very high quality, Aureol Groove sets a standard when it comes to excellent sound. It offers what some competing products costing more than 100 euros can't. Its virtues include impressive distortion resistance along with powerful and tonal, but surprisingly neutral and dynamic, playback. Teufel has made an across-the-board success of its entry into this segment of headphones. We congratulate them!"

"Major recommendation to purchase"

"Unbeatable home theatre sound from such compact speakers – test winner!"
HiFi Test 04/2008

The HiFi Test Magazin tested the Teufel System 4 against five other competing systems of the same price class in the July/August issue. This test victory made us so excited, we had to include a short excerpt out of the total test here for you:

"In the end, there can only be one winner and the winner this time is the Berlin-based direct seller Teufel. It's amazing what the designers were able to put together for a total price of € 800,-. The most powerful subwoofer in this test is able to lay a solid bass foundation beneath the balanced sound of the satellites even in large home theatre setups."

Overall rating: A / "very good"

"Exceptional acoustic performance with elegant design."
Area DVD 03/2008

"The homogenous, highly dynamic sound and detailed response of this system are very unusual in this price category. On top of this, the System 4 offers outstanding transparency in the high frequency range. Voices are always clear and highly intelligible. The very powerful active subwoofer blends harmoniously with the other speakers and has sufficient reserves to handle even the most thunderous special effects. At the same time, it is also sophisticated enough to handle demanding musical material smoothly. The two very compact dipole speakers are responsible for the lively, dense surround sound experience."

Pros:
• Surprisingly detailed response
• Very clear separation of voices and instruments
• Full, atmospheric rear channel sound
• Outstanding SPL-handling capacity
• Active subwoofer with amazing depth
• Very good performance in stereo mode

Price/performance ratio: 10 / 10 stars

Help regarding this product
Will the System 4 harmonise with my receiver?
The System 4 can be successfully combined with a wide range of AV Receivers providing that they have output performance of at least 5 x 40 watt sinus.
Which speaker cables does Teufel recommend?
For smaller sets up to Theater 1, we recommend using the 2.5 mm² Teufel speaker cable for optimal sound quality if the required length does not exceed 15 metres.

For Theater 2 and larger systems, we recommend the Teufel cable with 4 mm² cross-section for the front/centre speakers, and the 2.5 mm² cable up to a length of 15 metres for the effect speakers.

Choose a higher cross-section for even greater lengths.
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.
Is it possible to combine speaker cables with different cross-sections?
To supplement missing cable lengths you can use speaker cables of differing thicknesses without acoustical differences - provided there are no extreme differences in the cross-sections.
Should I rather choose a fully active or a partially active speaker set?
It is compulsory to connect partially active systems to an AV Receiver. This supplies the five to seven satellite speakers with the necessary power. Only the subwoofer works additionally with its own amplifier. The investment in a new system is higher because of the AV Receiver, but the solution is also much more flexible. After all, you can connect several signal sources, such as a TV, satellite receiver, PC, game console and MP3 player to an AV Receiver at the same time.

Fully active set do not necessarily need an AV Receiver. The five to seven satellite speakers here are supplied with power by the amplifiers which are installed in the subwoofer in addition to the subwoofer power amplifier. This saves you the costs of a receiver, but it is usually only possible to connect one source to our fully active subwoofer.

Exceptions here are the Concept E2, the Concept E Magnum Digital, the Motiv 5 Digital, the Concept F, the LT2+R and the Concept S+R.

Naturally you can also equip the fully active systems with an AV Receiver at a later point. The connection is then equal to the partially active sets.
Can I set up the set in a different way to that described?
The recommended set-up information below represents the best possible arrangement for perfect multichannel playback in your home. Your available space, your partner or your furniture may not always allow you to arrange the speakers in the ideal manner. Try to meet as many of the requirements as possible.

Modern AV Receivers offer numerous options for compensating electronically for any compromises in the set up. Generally speaking, the following rule always applies: you can always use our recommendations as a basis for experimenting with what works best for you, acoustically and optically. Let your ears (and eyes) decide!
Kann das System 4 meine HiFi-Boxen ersetzen?
Auf jeden Fall. Das System 4 ist ein vollwertiger Ersatz für Stereo-Standlautsprecher und für Musikwiedergabe wie Heimkinoton geeignet. Lautsprecher Teufel ist Pionier auf dem Gebiet hochwertiger Satelliten-Subwoofer-Kombinationen. Wir garantieren Ihnen mit einer sorgfältigen Entwicklung der Satelliten M 400 FCR einen Stereoklang vergleichbar mit deutlich teureren (und vor allem größeren) Standboxen. Ein Standard-Lautsprecher müsste schon etwa die Größe eines Kühlschranks haben, um einen tiefen Bass wiederzugeben, der mit einem separaten Subwoofer wie dem M 4000 SW vergleichbar ist. Mehr Informationen zu diesem Thema finden Sie hier: HiFi im Heimkino?
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.
