Highlights

Why we love this product
For smaller rooms up to 20 m², and tighter budgets, the Ultima 20 is the perfect choice. With the same sound technologies of its bigger sibling, the Ultima 40, these bookshelf speakers really prove themselves when it comes to sound - whether you place them on a shelf, stands or on the wall.

Berlin's bestseller

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.

Developed in Berlin

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.

Tweeter with phase plug and waveguide

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
Phase plug for avoidance of phase shift cancellations resulting in improved transparency and directional behaviour of higher frequencies.

Waveguide
Waveguide for a very precise location of individual sound sources and precise stage imaging of all instruments and voices.
Kevlar mid-range driver with phase plug
The mid-range driver is not only particularly large, but also has a phase plug. The result is very good speech intelligibility and a particularly warm, natural mid-range. This also expands the listening area in which listeners enjoy optimum sound.
Teufel Stereo-Lautsprecher Ultima 40 Mk3
Compatible with all AV receivers

Thanks to their high efficiency, the Ultima speakers work together with any AV receiver. If you want to provide sound for rooms over 20 m², we recommend AV receivers from around the 400 € mark.

Innovative technology

The smaller Ultima also produces a big sound, because it is full to the brim with the latest speaker technology.

Unmatched in every situation
The Ultima 20 is a high-quality bookshelf / rear speaker that makes no compromises. As an individual stereo pair or as part of a home cinema set surround set up, the Ultima 20 comes into its own. The appearance and acoustics fit perfectly with those of its big brother. The speakers can be positioned on a shelf, on speaker stands or wall mounted.

Ultima 20 review of www.dervinylist.com
"... wins you over with a strong price/performance ratio"
www.dervinylist.com 04.03.2019
„ The whole frequency band is very balanced, there are no unwanted behaviour, although we would have accepted that. [...] It also seems worth mentioning to us that we feel very well taken care of with the ULTIMA 20 even with 'high swinging' songs".

"Overall, the ULTIMA 20 represents a very good start and wins you over with a strong price/performance ratio. The sound is equally transparent, brilliant, lively, clean and with a presence to the front without losing its balance. Of course, larger and more expensive devices can do more, but for rooms up to 20 square meters, this speaker is a good choice. And when it gets bigger, the stereo system can be upgraded to a surround system." Translated with www.DeepL.com/Translator

Ultima 20 review of Stereoplay
"delivers very decent bass for its size"
Stereoplay 11/2018
"Once in position, the Berlin speakers allowed the music to be experienced as lively, full-bodied and balanced. The timbre of the Ultima 20 Mk3 was slightly on the bright side, but never tinny. The bass didn't hide away either, even with electronic beats [...]."

"[...] The Ultima 20 Mk3 offers a shaken sense of balance and also delivers very decent bass for its size [...]."

Help regarding this product
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!
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.
