The power from the inside

Ultima 40 Active generates its own heavy sound. That is due to an integrated Class-D amplifier, that can generate up to 250 watts. So you don't need any extra extreme subwoofers.

Design and materials

No shortcuts were taken when it came to optimising our Ultima speakers. Here are the highlights of the new range:

  • Teufel Stereo-Lautsprecher Ultima 40 Mk3
    High-gloss tweeter and matte speaker cabinet
  • Teufel Stereo-Lautsprecher Ultima 40 Mk3
    Easy to clean finish with scratch-resistant surface
  • Teufel Stereo-Lautsprecher Ultima 40 Mk3
    High-quality fabric mesh with revolving bevel - the frequency response is only minimally affected
  • Teufel Stereo-Lautsprecher Ultima 40 Mk3
    Modern, timeless design
  • Teufel Stereo-Lautsprecher Ultima 40 Mk3
    The solid, gently curved MDF housing is the result of more than 30 years of Teufel experience and modern speaker technology.
3-way system
The foundation for good sound lies in the design of the 3-way system, which has been further developed and improved over many years. The drivers work together in harmony across all frequency ranges, resulting in an extremely smooth and clear sound reproduction.
  • Teufel Stereo-Lautsprecher Ultima 40 Mk3
    Close-fitting driver for a vivid, balanced sound reproduction
  • Teufel Stereo-Lautsprecher Ultima 40 Mk3
    Two large bass reflex tubes with a trumpet tube attachment minimise any current noise - no other manufacturer makes this much effort.
  • Teufel Stereo-Lautsprecher Ultima 40 Mk3
    All drivers were measured with a laser using Klippel measurement technology in order to detect the smallest tolerances.
Double bass – a real Teufel in every respect

Especially if you're looking for full bass without a subwoofer, this full-range speaker is the right choice. Two large 165 mm fibreglass woofers provide a particularly precise low-frequency reproduction. The long stroke ensures distortion-free playback even at high levels. You don't need an additional subwoofer.

Teufel Stereo-Lautsprecher Ultima 40
Wireless surround sound
Surround sound is the key to creating an authentic cinema experience at home. Hear opponents stalking each other from behind, race cars overtaking each other or the audience cheering when the headliner act enters the stage.

The elaborate 2-way system, the wide dispersion characteristics and the long-throw bass mid-range driver of the Effekt speakers ensure a solid and full sound from behind.

The signal from your Teufel speakers/soundbar is transmitted to the Effekt speakers wirelessly. You only have to plug in one mains cable per speaker. The distance can be up to 15 metres. The speakers switch on and off automatically and feature an integrated wall bracket.

Ultima 40 Active Surround "4.0-Set" review of Stereoplay
"...young and lively..."
Stereoplay 01/2019
"It's a rare deal to get a standing loudspeaker for 500 Euros. However, the final product is no less than the products that cost double so much. The sound distribution is excellent, the tone is young and lively, but fundamentally good." (Translated from German).

"[...] The Ultima set created a full atmosphere and gave the impression of a large concert arena. […]"

"Voice reproduction in music and speech intelligibility in film were at the level of many sets, which cost twice as much. The Berliners also managed the spatial representation and expansion of the imaginary space extremely well."

"The new Ultima 5.1 set proves to be a special offer with an elegant, lively playing style, a really great spatial image and a wide soundstage. [...]"

"played dynamically and created a lively sound image"
Audio 11/2018
"An Ultima sounds like an Ultima, that's what we expected. It played dynamically and created a lively sound image. Even though the reproduction sometimes seems too closed and Marla Glen's voice showed a hint of too much colour, the loudspeaker was pleasantly striking compared to the 2016 model with a somewhat airier high-frequency reproduction. This gave the sound a little more three-dimensionality."

"...enjoy every style of listening to music..."
www.lowbeats.de 24.11.2018
"The Ultima 40 is a bargain when it comes to third generation and is a winner the best sense. Not one thing out of place, sonically perfectly balanced sound. Not quite a miracle, but a loudspeaker with which you can enjoy listening to any kind of music. I don't know of a better alternative for all people who only want to spend a little money and still want to enjoy a louder sound. This is also in part, as the Ultima 40 has been developed to work practically with smaller amplifiers and installation in smaller rooms." (Translated from German)

Ultima 40 Active Surround "4.0-Set" review of Outer Audio
"If you’re looking for a full surround sound system, you have the option of the 5.1 Ultima Series which is an absolute gem of a system"
Outer Audio 05/2019
"If you’re looking for something different, then the Teufel Ultima 40 is certainly one to check out. I put these on par with the Klipsch R-24F. However, I would say the R-24F has a more controlled bass response than the Ultima 40. If you’re looking for a stereo pair, then you should definitely consider the Ultima 40 Active over the passive model. You’ll get better value for money by not having to spend extra on an amplifier and cabling as well as a more efficient speaker with factory fitted and tested amplification. If you’re looking for a full surround sound system, you have the option of the 5.1 Ultima Series which is an absolute gem of a system and also very affordable for the size and quality you get."

Help regarding this product
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.
When can I use the rear speakers as direct speakers?
If you aren't able to position the speakers close to the wall as described above, you should use the them as direct speakers. For this purpose the rear switch should be tipped outwards. For use as direct speakers, the rear boxes should be set up to the left and right of the listening position - ideally at the same height, e.g. on a shelf or preferably on a base. If the speakers have to be set up so that they are much higher or lower, it may be advisable to align them to the listening point. For wall mounting it is best to use wall brackets that allow for vertical movement. When using the speakers in direct speaker mode, we recommend that the distance between the two rear speakers exceeds the listening position by 1m. But if you (have to) sit closer, please make sure that the front of the speaker is not pointing directly at you; instead, angle the speakers more into the room.
My Bluetooth speaker produces a lesser quality sound with my Windows PC or laptop.
It could be that the speaker is connected as a device with speakerphone function. Please go to: settings menu > devices and printer > BOOMSTER (or other Bluetooth device). Right click on the device and remove the check mark next to the “speakerphone” option.
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.
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.
What is the advantage of bi-amping/bi-wiring?
Bi-amping means that the speaker can be operated by two amplifiers at the same time, or by a bi-amping-capable AV receiver. This enables the different chassis (for the treble mid-tone and bass range) to be individually supplied with one signal. Among other things, this could increase the sound performance of a speaker.

Bi-wiring states that the corresponding speaker can be controlled at the same time with two different speaker cables, meaning via separated input sockets for the treble and mid-tone range on one hand, and for the bass range of the frequency switch on the other. This could improve the sound even more. Bi-wiring is the prerequisite for bi-amping.
Sind die Effekt Speaker kabellos?
Die Effekt Speaker benötigen nur einen Stromanschluss. Das Stromkabel ist am Speaker angebracht und 4 m lang. Die Signalübertragung erfolgt per Funk.
Welche Reichweite hat die kabellose Verbindung?
Es werden Reichweiten von bis zu 15 m erreicht.
Erfolgt die Übertragung verlust- und verzögerungsfrei?
Das Signal wird komprimiert, die Verluste sind aber nicht hörbar. Die Verzögerung beträgt nur wenige Millisekunden und ist auch nicht hörbar.
Muss ich die Effekt Speaker bei jedem Gebrauch extra einschalten und koppeln?
Nein. Die Effekt Speaker merken sich die Verbindung und schalten sich automatisch ein und aus. Die Standby-Leistungsaufnahme liegt bei unter 0,5 Watt.
Welche Wandhalter passen?
Der Wandhalter ist im Speaker integriert.
Welcher Standfuß passt?
Der AC 1001 SP.
