For years, the Ultima series has stood for a very good price to performance ratio. You won't get so much sound for such a good price anywhere else. Featuring superior audio technologies, the Ultima speakers deliver a perfectly balanced playback and are suitable for rock, pop, electro, classical and jazz music, as well as gaming and of course films. The new Ultima speakers are recognisable by the logo above the tweeter. They are the successor to the Ultima Mk2 series.
The complete development of the Ultima series, as well as all other speaker series, takes place here in Berlin in our laboratories and special anechoic audio rooms. Optimisation and refinement has been carried out over the years in close cooperation with our design team. Of course, customer feedback continues to act as a crucial factor in the further development of all our products.
The phase plug and waveguide built into the tweeter are unusual features for a product in this price range. They create even crisper sound precision in the high-frequency range.
Phase plug for avoidance of phase shift cancellations resulting in improved transparency and directional behaviour of higher frequencies.
Waveguide for a very precise location of individual sound sources and precise stage imaging of all instruments and voices.
No shortcuts were taken when it came to optimising our Ultima speakers. Here are the highlights of the new range:
High-gloss tweeter and matte speaker cabinet
Easy to clean finish with scratch-resistant surface
High-quality fabric mesh with revolving bevel - the frequency response is only minimally affected
Modern, timeless design
The solid, gently curved MDF housing is the result of more than 30 years of Teufel experience and modern speaker technology.
Close-fitting driver for a vivid, balanced sound reproduction
Two large bass reflex tubes with a trumpet tube attachment minimise any current noise - no other manufacturer makes this much effort.
All drivers were measured with a laser using Klippel measurement technology in order to detect the smallest tolerances.
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.

"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. [...]"
NB: The Ultima 40 (2018) speaker pair was rated as part of a Ultima 40 Surround 5.1 test.

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.
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.
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!
• Television: A conventional TV set will suffice. Naturally, devices with a 16:9 format are recommended for playing back DVDs.
• AV surround Receiver: This multichannel amplifier with integrated radio and decoder for Dolby Digital/DTS replaces the stereo amplifier. As minimum equipment, the device should have power amplifiers with approx. 5 x 40 watt output.
• DVD player: This devices supplies the video and audio signals, plays back a number of digital formats, also plays music CDs and MP3 files and is connected to the receiver.
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.
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.
