At first glance, the Theater 4 Hybrid looks like any other conventional home cinema set with two column speakers and no subwoofers. But don’t be fooled - the newest generation of the Theater 4 offers much more. This addition to the Teufel product line is a 5.2 set with two active subwoofers integrated into two column speakers for a combined bass power of 350 watts!

Smaller model, big idea
Based on the success of the large Theater 5 Hybrid, we offer the Theater 4 Hybrid as a somewhat smaller model designed according to same principle of active/passive hybrid technology.   Easily integrated
Given a comparable level of sound quality, this model naturally has a lower volume range than its bigger brother, yet it is still perfectly suitable for rooms up to 50 sqm. Its smaller dimensions mean it’s easier for you to integrate the set into your home and at a significantly lower price!
 
Integrated active subwoofers
With the Theater 4 Hybrid we offer a column speaker surround sound set with two active subwoofers at a price that can only be found at Teufel.
 
Lean design, massive sound
The new Theater 4 Hybrid is available in an elegant completely black finish and centres around the two M 420 F column speakers that can deliver massive sound despite their lean design.   Uniquely engineered
The primary reason for this are the two subwoofers integrated in the sides of the columns. These subwoofers are not separated by a passive crossover as is typically the case, but are used to drive the 250 millimetre laterally positioned woofer chassis with their own 175 watt amplifiers.
 
Plenty of advantages
Advantage number one: the receiver has less work to do and can provide its output power exclusively for the satellite speakers – which dramatically improves the ease of the sound.   Advantage number two: Space for a separate bass cube is no longer needed. Advantage number three: The subwoofer does not cost anything extra because everything is already contained in the column speakers!
 
Fantastic stereo, incredible bass
The active subwoofers in the column speakers can be controlled through the sub-out output of the AV receiver using a Y adaptor or the speaker terminals of a stereo amplifier. This universal connectivity means that the M 420 F speakers, which are also available separately in pairs, can be used as a fantastic stereo column system with incredible bass potential.

Twice the cone surface
The two subwoofer chassis of both hybrid columns provides you with twice the amount of cone surface that is standard for this class. More cone surface is still the most effective way of providing maximum airflow and hence maximum bass.
D’Appolito configuration
In addition to stunning bass, all five speakers used in the Theater 4 Hybrid also include an optimally fitted 25 mm dome tweeter and two 130 mm fibreglass midbass drivers in a D’Appolito configuration. Identical chassis configuration is still the best guarantee for harmonic surround sound reproduction!

Unobtrusive setup
The centre speaker can be placed below/above the TV screen while the M 320 R rear speakers can unobtrusively be positioned in the rear zone. Either wall-mounted or on speaker stands.

Emotional sound
The five speakers used in the Theater 4 Hybrid work in unison to give you an incredible surround sound experience that will even affect you on an emotional level. Only Teufel can offer you a home cinema system with more depth of sound, more bass range, more dynamic impulse for such a low price. ?

Specifications

Hybrid Speaker M 420 F
Hybrid Speaker M 420 F
The M 420 F column speaker is much more than a conventional column speaker. The special hybrid construction of this speaker allows it to simultaneously function as a passive stereo speaker and an active subwoofer.

Two 130 mm carbon fibre woofers and a 25 mm neodymium tweeter have been implemented in each speaker using the tried-and-tested D’Appollito configuration. Flanked by a 250 mm side-firing subwoofer, the M 420 F has a full-bodied response with incredible bass – and all in an ultra thin design!

The remarkable bass performance of this speaker is made possible by a separate 175 W amplifier which is solely responsible for the subwoofer channel. The tweeter/mid-range driver is located above, and is passively decoupled to handle frequencies from 90 Hz upwards. This driver can easily be seen from the front and is acoustically isolated within the column.

The universal design of the integrated active subwoofer allows it to be connected to the ‘Sub Out’ of your AV receiver or the speaker terminals of your stereo amplifier. In any case, this relieves your amplifier/receiver from bass duties and frees it up to concentrate more on the other frequency ranges.

With a pair of M 420 F speakers, you will dramatically improve the quality of the bass response in your stereo system. When used in a surround sound system, these two column speakers essentially add two subwoofers to your system.

A three-stage volume selector switch allows you to select how much bass is split between the subwoofer and tweeter/mid-range drivers and thus match the system to your listening environment.

This active/passive design delivers bass all the way down to 35 Hz and can generate sound pressure levels as high as 103 dB/m!

"The sound quality is fantastic"
WhatLaptop 06/2011
"The wireless speaker system is designed for large rooms, and you`ll certainly need plenty of space for the enormous subwoofer. Plug the sub-woofer into the mains and attach the included antenna, then you simply have to insert the transmission stick into a free USB port on your laptop. The stick will work automatically with Windows or Mac OS laptops.
With the sub-woofer turned on, your music can be wirelessly transmitted up to 20m. Two tiny speakers are also included, but you`ll need your own two-core speaker cables to connect them. Sound quality is fantastic, with adjustable bass levels that shook our test room, and you also get a remote control."

Theater 4 Hybrid "5.2-Set" review of hdworld-mag.de
"High-class listening."
hdworld-mag.de

The Theater 4 Hybrid surprises with a neutral, vivid and fresh sound. There were a few moments of absolute astonishment, particularly when playing Celine Dion’s "A New Day". The way the small satellites handled the impressive voice of the singer within the box volume is, for this price level, excellent. With film playback, the loudspeakers manage a spatial density in the free hearing atmosphere with clear definition in the high-, mid- and bass tone ranges.

"Iron Man" had us convinced with its very good depths as well as the vivid detail in the high ranges, while the mighty explosions lacked neither power or force in the bass area. The tiniest, most exact details weren’t lost either, with the music score incorporated within the acoustic distribution. The two relatively small shelf loudspeakers (M 420 R) generated a realistic surround sound; also by their quickness and clarity they stood out from the rest.

Conclusion:
The Theater 4 Hybrid delivers the evidence that high-class listening is also possible for around € 1.100,-. The accurate worksmanship and the complete total package are factors that are usually only combined when clearly higher sums are paid. The set is also perfect for elegant living situations, thanks to the the great visuals.

"Teufel has achieved the golden mean between frequency range, SPL-handling capability and transient response."
AV Magazin.de

The positioning of sounds in the surround field is also superb. A total of five identical midrange drivers – distributed between the left and right front, centre and surround speakers – ensure a balanced spatial distribution of sound.

Thanks to the uniform drivers, film soundtrack effects emerge very homogeneously from the quintet of satellite speakers. With the explosion of a pod racer, pieces of metal seemed to fly directly through the AV-Magazin listening room. That's what the surround sound listening experience is all about; moving the listener into the midst of the action instead of remaining seated on the sidelines.

"This Teufel system really kicks up the dust."
Audio

Summary
Even without an external subwoofer, the Theater 4 Hybrid offers a compelling bass response – and it doesn't need huge amplifiers either. When purchasing a home theatre system, however, it is important to consider the various possible configurations. When set up close to a wall or in a small-sized room, the enormous bass reserves of the subwoofers can be overpowering when listening to music. Only correctly-positioned subwoofers will give you an accurate sub-bass response. Film fans need not worry about this at all, since this Teufel system will provide all the bass ever needed.

Help regarding this product
Why is the Theater Hybrid a 5.2 set?
The number after the dot refers to the number of subwoofers used.

A 5.1 set uses one subwoofer, the Theater set has two active subwoofers, so it's a 5.2 set. The 5.2 set reproduces all of the 5.1 sound tracks on all DVDs, only the LFE ("low frequency effects") channel is played over not just one, but two subwoofers.
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!
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.
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.
How do I correctly equalise the two subwoofers?
We recommend turning up the volume level controls all the way on both subwoofers. Listen to a piece of music you are familiar with that has intensive basses.

Alternatively, you can also use the test sound of the receiver/amplifier. Now ask a second person to lower and raise the volume of the one subwoofer and then that of the other subwoofer. As a small aid, you can disconnect the normal speakers so that only the subwoofers are running. Both subwoofers are correctly adjusted when you have the feeling that both are equally loud.
What are the advantages of connecting a second subwoofer?
An additional subwoofer provides the following advantages:

1. The second membrane surface distinctly increases the sound pressure.

2. When using an additional identical subwoofer, the following also applies:

From a purely technical view the performance is doubled, yet the level only increases metrologically by roughly 6 dB which corresponds to a doubling but which the human ear cannot truly perceive. The sound is louder, but is not perceived as twice as loud.

3. In some rooms, the room acoustics can be significantly improved by a second subwoofer. Every room has a room resonance frequency that is additionally amplified by the room due to the frequency emitted by the speaker - the result is often droning or reverberant basses. A second subwoofer can accurately counteract this frequency; the result is a dryer bass.
What are the volume switches for?
The sound of the speaker always depends on the room where it is located.

The volume of the active subwoofer can be controlled so that you can adapt the relationship between the active bass and treble / mid tones to suit the room.

Use your own senses to judge which settings sound best in your room. This switch is especially useful in stereo mode. On the other hand, multichannel amplifiers often have technologies that adjust the subwoofer volume - so when using a multichannel amplifier the controller should first be set at 0dB.
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.
