DEVELOPED IN BERLIN
The Theater 500 was designed for highly transparent playback, making it the perfect companion for movie sound, gaming and music. Unlike systems engineered to quickly impress and just as quickly fatigue the ears, the Theater 500 produces no unnaturally elevated bass, no sharp and shrill treble. The following features elevate the Theater 500 above standard stereo speakers:

Time Alignment
A system for correcting time alignment enables a better, more precise positioning of vocals and instruments within the stereo panorama.

Constant Directivity Concept
A newly designed waveguide and phase plug ensure broad and even sound dispersion.

Damping chamber
A sound-damping chamber specially designed according to the Helmholtz Resonance principle ensures a clean sound. This effectively eliminates the formation of standing waves and unwanted resonances within the enclosure.

Downfiring bass reflex system
A bass reflex system prevents unwanted chuffing noise. Cleverly positioned on the bottom of the speaker enclosures, it makes it possible to position the speakers anywhere in the room without altering their sound.

3-way system

The Theater 500 uses an authentic 3-way driver system. The amply equipped system employs a total of 2 bass woofers with lightweight but rigid Kevlar membranes to produce deep, resonant bass without an additional subwoofer. The midrange drivers and tweeters delineate voices and instruments with incredible precision, resulting in an almost tangible soundscape.

Advanced Klippel measurements are used to make an already excellent system even better. This technology uses lasers to detect tiny imperfections along the driver membranes, allowing them to be corrected for an improved frequency response.

Teufel Time Alignment Technology
The Theater 500’s recessed tweeter corrects differences in propagation time for a well-structured sound. Vocals, instruments and sound effects are rendered clearly and with great naturalness. Just like a live event, you’ll be able to distinguish the relative positions of the instruments and vocalists to each other.

Constant Directivity Concept

A newly designed wave guide and phase plug gives the system a broad and even sound dispersion. This makes it possible for everyone in the room to enjoy the same well-blended sound with excellent speech intelligibility and localisation.

Innovative damping chamber
Inside the Theater 500, a specially designed damping chamber employs the concept of Helmholtz Resonance to minimize standing waves within the enclosure. This does away with the need to damp the bass reflex vent, allowing the low end to go deeper and work more efficiently. The result is an especially balance soundstage across all volume levels.
Downward-facing bass reflex system
The Theater 500 uses a downward-facing bass reflex system for anywhere room placement. A special oversized vent prevents the creation of wind noise at high volume levels.

Help regarding this product
Which speakers do I need to expand my stereo system to a surround system?
For a home cinema system in a 5.1 format you will need, apart from both stereo speakers a centre speaker that must be set up directly on, under or next to the TV set, two effect speakers to be installed to the left and right of where you are sitting and an active subwoofer.

The following recommendations apply to centre speakers.

For existing shelf speakers or small satellite speakers:
• M 320 C
• M 420 C
• M 450 FCR

To supplement standing speakers, larger shelf speakers and voluminous two-way speakers:
• M 520 FCR
• M 550 FCR THX Select
• M 620 FCR

To supplement 3-/4-way standing speakers:
• M 800 FCR THX Ultra 2
• M 1000 FCR THX Ultra 2

The following recommendations apply to rear and/or effect speakers.

For placement on the wall - up to rooms of 35 m²:
• M 450 D full-range dipole

For placement on a stand - up to rooms of 35 m²:
• M 450 FCR direct emitters

For placement on the wall - up to rooms of 50 m²:
• M 550 D full-range dipole
• M 620 D

For placement on a stand - up to rooms of 50 m²:
• M 550 FCR direct emitters

The subwoofer plays a far more important role for a home cinema than a pure stereo system. Not only are the base pulses of a DVD soundtrack much more intense and dynamic, but the bass sound effects even have their own so-called LFE channel ("Low Frequency Effects").

Our recommendations:

up to a room size of 30 m² > click here

up to a room size of 35 m² > click here

up to a room size of 50 m² > click here

up to a room size of 150 m² > click here

The listed room size and thus the choice of subwoofer must be differentiated according to the following criteria:

• Own experience with bass playback (have I already had a subwoofer or very strong bass speakers?)

• Own preference (do I like intensive bass or listen to intensive bass music?)

• How large is the room to be filled with sound? Only the area between the couch and the TV/the projection plays an essential role here. Adjacent areas, such as the dining room or a hallway are not decisive.

• How sensitive are my neighbours? What's the use of the correct subwoofer for my room size if I can never use the subwoofer in its full performance because of my neighbours?
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.
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.
