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
  • Subwoofer M 4500 SW

System 4 "Concert 5.1" review of HiFi Test
"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"

System 4 "Concert 5.1" review of Area DVD
System 4 "Concert 5.1" review of Area DVD
"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."

• 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
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 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.
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.
