Overview of our technologies

THX Certified
Downfire
Flat diaphragm

Optimised for wall mounting, the S 800 FCR front speakers boast contemporary flat diaphragm drivers in the bass and mid-range. The advantages of this include reduced distortion, minimised diffraction effects and ultra-low, mid-range and treble fade, all combined with the minimal interference of the virtually reflection-free grid. It may be 40% smaller than its predecessor but it boasts improved sound quality thanks to state-of-the-art driver technology, computer-aided Klippel optimisation techniques and intensive tuning work by our engineers.

Dipoles

These three-way speakers have a wall-side mounted 130 mm woofer for the ground element alongside a 100 mm midrange driver and 25 mm tweeter on each side makes sure you have equal sound from the front and back. This particular setup ensures that only sound from the back is perceived. Real THX sound has never been so realistic.

System 8 Teufel
Subwoofer sensationwith DSP

The most striking advance is the improvement of the subwoofer. Despite a two-thirds reduction in the size of its enclosure, the System 8's sub is the only subwoofer in the world to meet the exacting THX Ultra 2 standards with just one high-performance bass driver. A lengthy development process resulted in the extra long-throw woofer with magnetic shielding which is primarily responsible for the incredible performance of the S 8000 SW. The extremely efficient design allows 500 watts to produce very high levels free from distortion (e.g. 114 dB). Sophisiticated Digital Signal Processing (DSP) fine tunes the sound.

System 8 THX Ultra 2 "5.1-Set Connect" review of ExpertReviews.co.uk
"Compact"
ExpertReviews.co.uk 02-2011
“German speaker manufacturer Teufel is, in its own way, playing its part in making THX Ultra more affordable. By selling direct (and probably cutting out around a 30 per cent retail margin) it sells sets of THX speakers at prices that until recently you would only find on avforums or ebay. We may be committing home cinema heresy here but we think this direct approach is way overdue… We would far prefer to pocket the saving and have a better set of speakers in a cinema room. On top of this, Teufel offers a full returns service within 8 weeks of invoicing (note, not delivery)… the System 8s are neither small nor cheap but they put THX Ultra 2 within touching distance of the well-heeled enthusiast with a 50m³ or larger listening space.”

"Licence to Thrill"
Heimkino 03-2010
"Teufel delivered a true masterpiece with the Theater 8, which now enjoys a cult status. It's hard to imagine this performance could be topped, but Teufel's engineers have done just that with System 8. This THX-certified home cinema system outdoes its legendary predecessor in a number of ways. Not only is it more fascinating, harmonious and agile, but it can also be incredibly fun through either its corporeal or more subtle qualities. At the same time its new compactness makes it suitable for integration in a range of living spaces. Anyone seriously thinking about setting up a home cinema or even building a larger installation in a basement or attic shouldn't miss out on a chance to listen to this system."

"An acoustic top performance like this in combination with living room compatibility and an attractive price is worthy of our most coveted rating.”
Area DVD 01|2011
"With comparatively compact living room friendly components, the System 8 creates a surround sound environment without equal. A multi-faceted wealth of detail in all frequency ranges and a clear transparency in the sound image with a well-defined, dense atmosphere and finely delineated structure in the deeper frequencies produce a home cinema experience without compromise. The subwoofer warrants special notice as the relatively compact 80 liter enclosure bombards the room with a monstrous bass deluge, extremely good depth, and astonishing fine dynamics that only larger devices are usually able to achieve. The higher frequencies seamlessly contribute to the overall effect, characterized by dynamism in the vocals with a broadly differentiated gradation and a clearly differentiated high end that remains very pleasant even at high levels. An acoustic top performance like this in combination with living room compatibility and an attractive price is worthy of our most coveted rating.”

Help regarding this product
My subwoofer is humming. What can I do?
This hum can be caused by the connected devices or disruptions in your electricity current. Please do a test to see which it is.

1. Remove the RCA cable from the input on the subwoofer. If the hum is no longer heard, go to point B. Otherwise, follow point A.

A. Attach the net cable of the subwoofer to another electricity outlet (i.e. Kitchen/Bathroom/Bedroom). If the subwoofer still hums, get in contact with our Support team.

Should the hum no longer be there, the disruption was a problem in your power supply, which can, for instance, be caused by dimmers or chargers. To find out where the disruption is, unplug all your devices and work back from there. As soon as the hum is heard, you now know your source of the disruption.

B. In your case, the "ground hum" is responsible for the disruption. Please proceed as follows to discover your source.

  • Disconnect the cable or satellite port from the TV Receiver and check if the hum disappears or not. If it does, you can use a sheath current filter for the cable outlet to prevent this. For example, the sheath current filter AC 9022 ED. If you have a satellite connection, connect the Satellite Receiver to the optical cable playback source - Teufel Optical Digital Cable

  • If this reason can be excluded, separate all devices from the AV Receiver one at a time until the hum stops. The last connected device is then your hum source and should be separated from the others using a galvanic separation filter (found in a retail shop)

  • If this doesn't work, get in contact with us once again so that we can give an individual, helpful response.
Der Subwoofer spielt nicht – was kann ich tun?
1. Falls die Power-Diode nicht leuchtet:
Tauschen Sie die neben dem Netzschalter befindliche Sicherung aus. Falls die Power-Diode danach nicht leuchtet, wenden Sie sich bitte an unseren Service. Falls die Power-Diode danach leuchtet, aber kein Ton zu vernehmen ist, verfahren Sie bitte wie unter Punkt 2. beschrieben.

2. Falls die Power-Diode leuchtet:
Drehen Sie den Pegelregler Level am Subwoofer auf »Minimum«, ziehen das Subwoofer-Cinchkabel am Verstärker ab, drehen Level vorsichtig hoch und berühren den Cinch-Heißleiter des Cinch-Kabels (innen) mit dem Finger. Ist nun ein Brummen oder Knacken zu hören, liegt der Fehler beim Receiver oder seinen Einstellungen. Bleibt der Subwoofer stumm, wenden Sie sich bitte an unseren Service.
