Overview of our technologies

System 5

This 5.1 speaker set perfectly unifies uncompromising sound quality with ergonomic and economic factors. Given the balance Teufel has struck with System 5, it's hardly surprising this set is absolutely a top seller.

HiFi & Home Cinema
System 5 gives audio fans a chance to solve two common problems: they can deal with the intensive use of space multi-channel speaker sets require while also bridging the worlds of HiFi and home cinema. Although the front dimensions of these speakers are smaller than a piece of A4 paper in size, the sound they produce is phenomenal. They render the spoken word with extreme clarity, deliver a precise sense of spatiality and boast exorbitant volume capacity.

Gateway to peak quality
This System 5 version is a compressed variation of the System 5 THX Select 2. It combines THX Select 2-certified front loudspeakers with adapted S 50 D compact dipoles and an S 5000 SW THX Select 2 subwoofer.

Sounds like System 5 THX Select 2
From the perspective of tonal quality this System 5 version easily holds its own with its larger counterpart. The only major difference is its lower maximum volume, which is limited primarily by the system's single subwoofer.

Ideal up to 35 square metres
The System 5 is perfect for your needs if you want to fill a space up to 35 square metres in size with music and home cinema sound rendered at peak quality with extreme transparency and dynamism. If you want to fill a larger room we recommend you upgrade to System 5 THX Select 2 with its dual subwoofers.

Suitable for small or large A/V receivers
While this set is perfectly suitable for all THX receivers, it can also be effectively operated from any "normal" A/V receiver. Thanks to the high level of performance delivered by the set's satellite speakers, amazingly good quality is delivered at even low power input levels. Hook up a powerful amp to really put this system over the edge...

A solid choice
System 5 keeps with the tradition established by its series in offering above-average performance at an unbelievably low price. It embodies all the positive qualities of a Teufel set and stands to rival the extraordinary successes its predecessor enjoyed during testing.

Subwoofer S 5000 SW

Within the 55 litre enclosure, a 300 mm neodymium high-excursion down-firing woofer creates fulminating bass. Thanks to Teufel’s proprietary Air Stream Bass technology, no wind noise will disturb your enjoyment of movies, games and music.


Die Teufel-typischen Dipole S 50 D sorgen in ihrer ganz speziellen Konstruktionsweise für die atmosphärischen Geräusche, Effekte, Signale. Sie produzieren einen schwebenden Klangteppich, auf dem sich das richtige Kino-Feeling einstellt. Dank einer doppelten Auslegung der Tief-Mitteltöner und Hochtöner und entsprechend angepasster Weiche. Dafür ist aber eine Positionierung direkt an der Wand notwendig - Standmontage wird nicht empfohlen.

Flat-diaphragm front speakers

The main speakers have an indentical construction featuring integrated midrange drivers with flat membrane technology for the following advantages: zero phase shifting, reduced distortion, and no noise. Frequencies above 2000 Hz and taken up by the adjacent dome tweeters.

"The THX-factor"
Home Cinema Choice 01/2011
"The giant subwoofer is the strongest single component, flooding the room with an ocean of deep bass. It's a thrilling performance combined with the edgy satellites, and is arguably closer to the visceral experience you'll have in the cinema than the other systems."

"From a powerful bass as a voluminous foundation to precise and exactly positioned details: Everything here is just right."
www.lite-magazin.de 02.08.2015
"We initially noticed that the CUB 2 FCRs are very flexible: Whether on a shelf, on speaker stands or mounted to a wall – horizontally or vertically – the little speakers work everywhere.“

"With the Cubycon set, it quickly becomes apparent that the combo isn’t interested in specializing in any one thing. The Teufel team would much rather show an absolute all-round talent with strengths in all areas. From a powerful bass as a voluminous foundation to precise and exactly positioned details: Everything here is just right. It especially becomes clear with movies that even quiet scenes are accompanied by an expansive soundstage [...].“


"We’ll tell it like it is: The Teufel Cubycon 2 Complete is an all-in-one package of the highest calibre. The relatively easy installation makes a frustration-free setup possible for even home cinema beginners and technical laymen and offers an extremely spectacular sound as a reward at the end. By the time one considers the insanely good price/performance ratio, there’s nothing left to be done than to categorize the surround system as the elite of its kind.”

System 5 "5.1-Set Cinema" review of av-magazin.de
"...we were amazed by the fullness of the sound and dynamics in our test room.”
av-magazin.de 18.02.2015
"… A nearly ‘invisible' home theatre system that the whole family will love.”

“The Teufel System did well in our user test. Considering the “mini” size of the five loudspeakers, we were amazed by the fullness of the sound and dynamics in our test room.”

"One hears a very homogenous sound in all directions thanks to identical driver construction across all five channels. Even the finest details like the creaking of a ship’s beams in Master and Commander are skillfully reproduced in the listening room.”

“When Bond chases the villain with a bulldozer in the first minutes of Casino Royale, it not only rumbles through the living room, it can be felt. The three downward facing drivers [on the T-4000 subwoofer] really do a good job.”

"When it comes to daily use, the set’s suitability for daily use won us over. Once the system’s been setup, one doesn’t need to give it a second thought. The interplay with the TV in our case is [...] perfect. The basic settings on the CoreStation are straight-forward and the small system perfectly assimilates into the living room.”


“Those who don’t want to do without home cinema sound but who insist on an installation that can easily be accomplished will hit upon the right choice with the Teufel Cubycon 2 Complete. The A/V receiver can be hidden behind the television, the subwoofer under the sofa. Only five satellites remain in the field of site. The controls are simple, installation quickly accomplished. The subwoofer ensures a dynamic, deep and punchy bass. Thanks to an identical construction, the satellites deliver very detailed and homogenous home cinema sound. In short: A nearly ‘invisible’ home theatre system that the whole family will love.”

"Pleasant and extremely voluminous soundstage"
areaDVD 01/2015
“Cubycon 2 [...] now comes with its own amplifier and a chic as well as innovative subwoofer [...] which can also be controlled wirelessly. [...]
The extremely flat and extra-long dimensions give the subwoofer [...] a lot of flexibility in terms of setup options.”

“Even the receiver [...] has a very pleasant, compact size and can be placed in just about any room.”


“The system’s excellent spatiality [...] was most pronounced. Then it should be mentioned that the foremost sonic levels emanating from the three front speakers separate themselves well from each other and sound like they were cast from the same mold [...]. In our home theatre, there was an immediate concert atmosphere. [...] The T 4000 [subwoofer] does an amazing job without breaking a sweat.“


+ Great spatiality
+ Flat, wireless subwoofer with powerful bass
+ Very chic, innovative flat subwoofer
+ Extremely stable levels
+ Clean workmanship
+ Dynamic playback in the treble and midrange
+ Compact CoreStation
+ Pleasant and extremely voluminous soundstage

Help regarding this product
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!
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.
What is a ground hum?
The hum (50 Hz) comes from the 220 volt supply network and is caused by current power flows through the protective conductor. These so-called "ground hums" is caused when you connect two devices that are already grounded on the protective conductor (subwoofer) or the antennae cable (AV Receiver) to the subwoofer cable.

Separate the direct connection by a grounding filter for the antennae cable that is created for it - for instance, the Teufel modell sheath current filter AC 9022 ED. Alternatively, you can use a galvanic separation filter that is looped into the connection between the subwoofer and AV Receiver.

The hum disappears if the antennae cable is separated from the Receiver/Tuner/TV. First try the grounding filter, otherwise the galvanic separation filter.
Where is the optimal place for the subwoofer of my Lautsprecher Teufel Surround System in a 5.1/6.1/7.1 configuration?
The location of a subwoofer with a recommended cut-off frequency of under/equal to 120 Hz can be freely selected and does not affect the other speakers.

Placement within the straight line between both front satellites is ideal - but not precisely in the corner of the room because certain frequency components could be unpleasantly excessive when played back.
How do I determine the right phase setting of the subwoofer?
By setting the phase, you can affect the point at which the membrane of the subwoofer bass speaker moves to the front. This setting makes it possible to optimally adjust the subwoofer to the satellites.

The membranes of the satellites should move to the front at the same time as the membrane of the subwoofer bass speaker, because all speakers of the system must vibrate in phase for optimal playback. This means that (provided the connection has the correct polarity) all drivers must move in one direction when the three front speakers receive a pulse (towards the outside or towards the inside).

If the subwoofer is in line with the front speakers, its bass speaker should have the same direction of movement (phase) - the controller on the woofer is set to "0". If the subwoofer is not between the front speakers, but is to the side of or even behind the listening location, its phase length will not match that of the front speakers. That is why the phase of the subwoofer must be changed in such cases.

So much for the theory. In practice, this means: Listen to a loud piece of music with heavy basses and ask a second person to change the phase during playback. The correct setting of the phase switch depends on where the subwoofer is positioned in the room. The position where the bass playback (above all the upper bass range) sounds the fullest is the correct position. Have fun trying it out!
What's the deal with the so-called bass traps or bass absorbers?
These are usually cubic wood housings (same MDF material as the speakers) with a bass reflex opening that have no membranes and are tuned to a certain frequency (e.g. 40 Hz as for a subwoofer). The frequency to be co-ordinated can be changed by the length and diametre of the bass reflex channel. If, for example, a room has a room resonance frequency of 28.3 Hz and this frequency is also played back in addition by a speaker/subwoofer, the room will begin to resonate at this frequency. This particular frequency is played back amplified.

This can be imagined as droning or booming, which occurs during heavy bass movie scenes such as explosions or certain types of music (Jazz, pizzicato bass). The bass absorber is then tuned exactly to this frequency so that only the speakers/subwoofer play back this frequency. The resonance frequency from the room, which would amplify this frequency, is swallowed by the bass absorber.

If you would like to damp more than one frequency (a room usually has three different frequencies: ceilings and floors, front and back and left and right, and its multiple), you will have to set up three absorbers accordingly.
How is the wattage of a subwoofer with respect to the sine wave and pulse/music performance?
Mono subwoofer:

The wattage (e.g. "360 W") printed on the rear of the subwoofer near the mains plug designates the ability of the power amplifier "to pull" a maximum power rating in the specified range at the moment of switching on (those 360 watt stated as an example).

Consequently, the wattage must correspond to at least the sine wave output of the amplifier, as this sine wave output must be permanently available which the power pack must provide as well.

The pulse/music performance of the amplifier, on the other hand, can exceed the wattage, because the short pulses are buffered additionally by the capacitors in the power pack and are not achieved solely through the performance of the power pack.

Multi-channel subwoofer:

The wattage for a multi-channel subwoofer can also be below the sine wave output, as the specified sine wave output is not requested from every channel at the same time.

For a 5 x 100 watt sinus power amplifier, for example, each of the five channels is able to implement 100 watt sine. However, not all five channels at the same time! This is also unnecessary, as the same signal is never transmitted across all five channels at the same time, thus requesting the same high sine wave output per channel.

That is why the wattage may be, e.g. 300 watt, even if the sine wave output exhibits 5 x 100 watt (= 500 watt).
Which subwoofer cables does Teufel recommend?
Dans la mesure où dans un ensemble home cinéma les caissons de basses actifs sont connectés à la sortie Out du caisson de basses du récepteur AV, un câble supplémentaire pour la connexion des enceintes satellites est nécessaire. Pour les caissons de basses actifs nous proposons deux versions de câble mono RCA NF allant de 2,5m jusque 5m. Du reste, un adaptateur Y est également disponible dans nos accessoires. Le modèle „ 2 x mâles 1 x femelle“ permet un usage complet des entrées Line-In RCA droit et gauche au caisson de basses. Ainsi, la puissance du caisson de basses s’en voit augmentée. Le modèle „1 x mâle 2 x femelles“ permet la connexion de deux caissons de basses. Une sortie caisson de basses Pre-Out du récepteur se trouve en sommes doublée.
What is room resonance frequency?
Room resonance frequency (other terms: room modes, standing waves, resonance frequency) is the frequency at which the vibrations of a voice, a musical instrument or a signal played back over the hi-fi/home cinema system is amplified unnaturally, because the vibrations build up between the walls as well as the floor and ceiling.

It is calculated of the sound velocity divided by 2 and divided by the room length [ 340 m/s: 2 : 6 m = 28.3 Hz (=1/s) ] or, more simply: 170 divided by the room dimension (length, width or height). The greatest distance between two parallel walls is taken as first standard value. For a room of 4 x 6 metres, this would be 6 metres. Strictly speaking, you would have to calculate the room resonance frequency for further parallel walls (for the 4 metres and for the ceiling height).

Overlaying resonances are also possible if the room dimensions are very close to each other. (2.8 metres high, 3 metres wide and 5.6 metres long). The resonance at 2.8 metres is repeated as multiple (times 2) at 5.6 metres length, the resonance of the 3 metres width is close to the resonance of 2.8 metres. It would resonate strongly here at 30 Hz, 56 Hz, 60 Hz and 120/112 Hz.

Phenomena of resonance frequencies:

• For example, a man with a deep voice speaks in a very small room (2 by 2 metres, 85 Hz). The voice appears to have more emphasis than in another room or out of doors. As soon as a woman speaks, the voice will sound just the same as in another room.

• The voice of a woman or that of a small child will cause glass to shatter. The voice strikes exactly the tone that corresponds to the resonant frequency of the glass. The glass resonates so strongly that it shatters (refer to the movie "The Tin Drum").

• A group of soldiers march across a bridge in cadence. The equal movement causes the bridge to vibrate so much that it collapses. That is why no one marches across bridges in cadence.
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.

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.
