The Theater 100 series is among Teufel’s best-loved speaker systems. Why? Its compact loudspeakers with wooden enclosures offer simply amazing sound reproduction with music and movies at a price that is one of the best examples of a typically Teufel price/performance ratio.

Surround yourself with premium sound at minimal cost

The latest version of the Theater 100 features even more balanced tuning and precise highs. Tweeters from the T series make the set sound much more expensive than it actually is.

But excellent sound is more than just quality components. How they're put together is equally important. To this end, we use the Klippel system of measurement to optimize all of the drivers in the Theater 100 Mk3. In practical terms, this means that even threshold frequencies can be reproduced without distortion. It also means that you’ll experience a seamless transition between frequency ranges without gaps.

It’s difficult to achieve a real cinema atmosphere without dipoles. Two drivers on the front and back sides give the T 130 D a diffuse, cinema sound – essential for creating the kind of thrilling, immersive sound that can deliver the full emotional depth of the best movies and shows. Teufel is the only manufacturer to offer this elaborate, but very effective technique in this price class. With the simple flip of a switch, the Theater 100’s dipoles can be converted into direct sound transducers for gaming or multichannel music.

The tuning and construction of the front loudspeakers ensure optimal sound reproduction for music with a one very special feature: A very linear frequency response and comparatively deep crossover to the subwoofer. This creates playback with a full and rich sound, especially with musical instruments.

The rectangular shape of the speakers is mirrored in the centre, which also shares the same driver construction. A high degree of acoustic symmetry is the result. Powerful midrange drivers ensure excellent speech intelligibility during even the most action-packed movies.

Bass all the way down to 33 Hz is no problem for the Theater 100 Mk3 thanks to a subwoofer with a 250 watt amplifier and 250 mm driver. A rigorous system of Klippel measurement results in a booming yet distortion-free and precise 104 dB/1m.

The Theater 100 Mk3 has changed, yet stayed true to itself. This is a set for demanding but price-conscious home cinema and hifi fans. The previous Theater 100 already garnered accolades from customers and the hifi press alike. Its successor is even better.

Dipole Speaker T 130 D (right)
Dipole Speaker T 130 D (right)
Two tweeters and two midrange drivers are integrated into this dipole speaker for both front and back channel operation. These speakers are perfect for the ultimate in sound effects and a realistic room spatiality and sound. These speakers emit not only in one direction, but both. This is a very diffuse type of sound and thanks to the reflections on the walls it's very difficult to locate the sound source.

The rear two-way speaker approach can be switched off if required. This setting is useful when the speaker is placed in the room or on a stand, versus the wall diffusion.

The speaker has magnetically removable front covers. The rings on the front of the bare speaker in a gunmetal finish are especially nice.

Stable gold-plated screw terminals can handle cable with a cross-section area of up to 4 mm².

Theater 100 Mk3 "5.1-Set Cinema" review of AreaDVD
Theater 100 Mk3 "5.1-Set Cinema" review of AreaDVD
"Beim Theater 100 Mk3 ist man gerade bei der Filmtonwiedergabe stets mittendrin"
AreaDVD 01-2013
 “Compact, high-performance dipoles (for the rear) called T 130 Ds with a frequency range of 100 to 21,000 Hz are identical to those used in the Theater 200 Mk2. With a peak power capacity of 140 watts and average of 90 watts, the dipoles are equipped with a 25 mm fabric dome tweeter and 130 mm bass driver on either side.

Especially compact T 130 F satellites are used for the left and right channels with 12 mm MDF enclosures. An average power capacity of 60 and peak of 80 watts makes this system ideal for small to medium sized rooms. [...] The speakers have sealed, 2-way constructions. [...] The T 130 centre speaker is used for the front. It contains the same components as the bookshelf speakers, but the tweeter is completely removed from the centre where it ‘presides’ over the enclosure. A curved metal piece in anthracite that extends from the enclosure over the tweeter provides a cosmetic accent. [...]

The subwoofer T 1300 SW included with the set is, as one would expect, more compact that the T 2300 SW that accompanies the Theater 200 Mk3. However, with 250 watts, the integrated class D digital amplifier delivers a commendable low range. A full maximum sound pressure of 107 dB from the 25.4 kilo active bass likewise offers a satisfying tone. The robust MDF enclosure on the direct sound transducers has a bass reflex port. Teufel’s DPU bass reflex technology ensures a high level of performance without any distracting wind noise.

Overall, this set is ideal for those looking for good level stability, thrilling cinema sound, and compact dimensions at an affordable price."

“The Theater 100 has a somewhat different configuration than the Teufel 5.1 set we recently tested, the Theater 200. The Theater 100 sounds somewhat more aggressive and intense in the listening range, which can be attributed to different front speakers  [...]. The dipoles are identical on both sets. Especially with movies, one notices a larger degree of metallic harshness during exchanges of gun fire. With musical selections, it also becomes apparent, especially with electric guitars, that the Theater 100 Mk3 places less emphasis on harmony and more on homogeneity. The little system does an excellent job with broad dynamics, underscoring a character that is more challenging than the Theater 200 Mk3. Listeners who enjoy enormous dynamics and like a certain kick in the upper ranges should be happy with this set."

“Teufel’s Theater 100 Mk3 definitely differentiates itself acoustically from its ‘big brother,’ the Theater 200 Mk3. It has a snappier sound in the upper ranges and puts more emphasis on brilliance which might be too much of a good thing for sensitive natures, whereas others will love the dynamic. The Theater 100 Mk3 is always in the middle of the action when it comes to movie sound. The T 1300 SW really pushes from the back and makes use of an exceptional low range. A ‘real’ Teufel system all around: Affordable and powerful with stable levels."  

Conclusion
"‘Typically Teufel‘ – The Berliners show compact strength this time around. The Theater 100 Mk3 knows how to put mid-sized rooms under maximum pressure.“

"a great bargain that can be absolutely recommended”
SFT 2/2013
 “It’s unusual, especially in this price class, to find dipoles being used as rear speakers: they radiate sound from the sides. This ensures a more diffuse, relaxed cinema panorama. Those [...] who prefer direct sound transducers can convert the loudspeakers with a simple flip of a switch. Although the centre looks different than the satellites thanks to a superimposed tweeter and ‘handle,’ it blends in with the rest acoustically. [...] The subwoofer, on the other hand, really makes its presence felt with extraordinary depth and a good amount of power [...]

High-end connections, solid enclosures, and integrated wall mounts don’t always come standard for 700 Euros. [F]or the price, the set [...] is a great bargain that can be absolutely recommended.”

Help regarding this product
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.


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.
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.
