Highlights

Key advantages at a glance
  • This is a high powered Home Cinema Speaker Set with partially-active Floor Speakers

  • 1 horizontal centre speaker with dual mid-range drivers
  • Harmonious Sound: 2 identically-configured rear loudspeakers
  • High Compatibility: Works with any AV receiver
  • Sound optimised for spaces of up to 35 sqm

The Theater 3 Hybrid is the newest addition to Teufel’s line of column speakers with integrated subwoofers. Similar to the extensively tested and proven Theater 4 Hybrid and Theater 5 Hybrid models, the newest member of Teufel’s speaker range is a 5.2 set with two active subwoofers integrated in the column speakers. It may seem like conventional surround sound at first, but given a closer look the Theater 3 Hybrid will blow you away!

Integrated side subwoofers
A pair of over waist high M 320 F column speakers form the heart of the new Theater 3 Hybrid. The thin and streamlined design of these speakers lies in stark contrast to the extremely powerful sound they are capable of delivering. The primary reason for this are the two subwoofers integrated in the sides of the columns. These subwoofers are not separated by a passive crossover as is typically the case, but are used to drive the 200 millimetre laterally positioned woofer chassis with their own 150 watt amplifiers.
 
Skip buying subwoofers
This method of active subwoofer integration has three main advantages. Number one: The receiver has less work to do. Number two: Space for a separate bass cube is no longer needed. Number three: The subwoofers do not cost anything extra because everything is already contained in the column speakers!
 
Twice the cone surface
The active subwoofers in the column speakers can be controlled through the sub-out output of the AV receiver using a Y adaptor or the speaker terminals of a stereo amplifier. This universal connection option means the column speakers can be used independently as high quality stereo speakers, which is why the two M 320 F speakers are also offered separately as a stereo speaker pair. The two subwoofer chassis of both hybrid columns provides you with twice the amount of cone surface that is standard for this class. More cone surface is still the most effective way of providing maximum airflow and hence maximum bass.
 
Fibreglass midbass driver
But bass isn't everything - other frequency ranges are also reproduced at a level of quality that is unrivalled in this price class. The optimally configured 25 mm cloth dome tweeter and 130 mm fibreglass midbass driver used in all of the speakers guarantee extremely harmonic surround sound reproduction!
 
Unobtrusive configuration
The horizontal M 320 C centre speaker can be placed below or above the TV screen while the compact M 320 R rear speakers can unobtrusively be positioned in the rear zone. Either wall-mounted or on stands.
 
Easy integration
This is the smallest set in the Hybrid speaker line, and with a comparable level of sound quality - but a somewhat lower volume range than the two larger sets - it is perfectly suitable for use in rooms up to 35 sqm. The set can easily be integrated into your home due to its smaller size.
 
Great bargain
Of course, the Theater 3 Hybrid also costs less than the Theater 4 Hybrid und Theater 5 Hybrid. For under 1000 euros, you get a top of the line column speaker surround sound set with two active subwoofers. Only from Teufel.

Space requirements, schmace requirements...not any more! Enjoy the best in easy flat placement and distinctive sound with the M 320 speaker set.

Space for extra
A three-stage volume selector switch assigns various weights to the subwoofer and tweeter/midrange ranges - so the speakers can be adjusted to various space requirements.

Distinctive sound
The speaker, with its integrated subwoofer, is capable of producing an incredibly powerful yet finely differentiated sound. The speaker's remarkable bass performance is made possible by a separate 150 watt amplifier which exclusively powers the subwoofer channel.

The rear channels in the Theater 3 Hybrid system are handled by the M 320 R speakers. This speaker – available as a classic bookshelf unit with a universally compatible impedance of 4 to 8 ohms – contributes to the rear of the sound field.

By using the same drivers as the three front speakers – 130 mm fibreglass woofer and 25 mm fabric dome tweeter – the surround sound of this system is highly balanced.

With a maximum power rating of 80 W, this system has sufficient reserve capacity to be operated in rooms of up to 35 m2.

This centre channel speaker is the ideal addition to the M 320 F front speakers.

This speaker – equipped with two 130 mm fibreglass woofers, a metal phase plug and one 25 mm neodymium tweeter – provides wide dispersion of dialogues and speech. This is an essential aspect for listeners not situated in the ideal ‘sweet spot’.

Theater 3 Hybrid "7.2-Set" review of What HiFi
Theater 3 Hybrid "7.2-Set" review of What HiFi
"A unique speaker system that has plenty going for it."
What HiFi 08/2009

This complete home cinema speaker package gives you more box for your buck (thanks to the full complement of surround speakers) but for less money. Admittedly, this is just a speaker system rather than an all-in-one, but it's still an impressively modest price tag for what you're getting.

Chunky fronts come packing subs
And this is no ordinary 5.1 system. The Teufel Theatre 3 Hybrid offers a centre channel and two rear speakers alongside two floorstanding front speakers that come packing integrated active subwoofers – making a 5.2 system of sorts.

If by some rather large oversight you had managed not to notice the make-up of this system, rest assured the penny will drop when you lift up the front speakers: standing 94cms tall, the Teufel M320F floorstanders weigh in at a very hefty 18.5kg, incorporating as they do a 150 Watt amplifier to drive that 20cm sub.

The rear and centre channels follow more traditional lines, and the system as a whole looks smart and nicely finished – as we've said, it's a lot of kit for the cash.

Detailed, fast and cohesive sound
Given a few days to run in, the Teufel produces a detailed, fast and cohesive sound. Watching the Blu-ray of Iron Man, special effects sound crisp and open, while the centre channel delivers clear dialogue. [...]

The Teufel Theatre 3 Hybrid is a substantial and stylish system with enough speed, cohesion and excitement to warrant consideration.

Pros:
• Speakers carry their bulk well
• Integrated sub design is neat
• Fast and cohesive
• Good insight

Theater 3 Hybrid "7.2-Set" review of Area DVD
Great for your ears... and your wallet!
Area DVD 06/2009

The Theater 3 almost completely overwhelms with a natural tone, room space, precise bass, punctilious high ranges and stability levels. Total overall score for sound in relation to the price class – perfect.

Overall conclusion
No one should wonder why Teufel has such a prominent position in the German loudspeaker market after listening to the Theater 3.5.2 Hybrid system. Such a natural tone, large and small, precise dynamics absolutely spot on, enormous stability levels and commanding sound…there's so little that's critical to say.

Your ear and your wallet can be thrilled, because for your money you get a complete full sound ensemble which doesn't shrink to render complex music playback – rather, it successfully lets it loose without difficulty. Thanks to a dynamic surround sound connection and the strong but never artificially overplayed bass tones, your film enjoyment is also an exceptional experience.

The practical equipment is a joy as well. Thanks to its compact size, then Theater 3 can also easily be situated and installed in smaller sitting rooms.

• Large as well as fine dynamics astounding for this price class
• Natural tonality
• Clear and astounding multi-faceted high ranges
• Assertive, sound and accurate bass playback
• Wonderful connections of the mid-range areas
• High stability levels
• Exceptionally affordable price


A first class 5.2 loudspeaker set with low space requirements!

"Price / Performance ratio 10 / 10 stars plus an extra star for outstanding quality at a very affordable price."

"The excellent craftsmanship of the Theater 3 Hybrid is just as impressive as its top-notch sound. It's difficult to imagine another system offering this much performance with a size this compact and a price tag this low.

"Convincing" – VIDEO Recommendation."
Video 04/2008

Conclusion:
The Theater 3 Hybrid is indisputably an impressive product launch from Teufel. In the 2.2 scenario, this technically sophisticated system makes music listening a thoroughly enjoyable experience. Add to that the centre and rear speakers and you get a fully cinematic home theatre system that can soar to the highest levels (neighbours permitting!) – without ever neglecting the quieter moments. Of course we don’t want to go overboard with our praise, but this certainly is a system that will provide ongoing listening pleasure. And it's available for a very fair price.
