Overview of our technologies

Music, home cinema and gaming sound without compromise

The systems' two premium tower speakers deliver gorgeous stereo playback with music. The same high-end sound accompanies home cinema and gaming with the addition of a centre, surround speakers and powerful subwoofer. All components are perfectly aligned and share the same driver technology for a harmonious listening experience.

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.

Centre with two midrange drivers

The compact T 500 C 16 centre speaker offers impressively powerful playback. Use the integrated keyhole brackets to wall mount the speaker directly under your TV and enjoy incredible speech intelligibility.

The T 500 C 16 also fits easily on a shelf. The included base can be removed for wall placement.
Acoustically, the centre offers an exceptional performance thanks to:

  • A linear frequency response
  • Two midrange drivers for excellent speech intelligibility
  • High performance drivers for minimal distortion at high levels

Dipole speakers for an authentic cinema atmosphere

Dipole speakers are specially designed for use as rear speakers in a surround system. Instead of radiating sound directly towards the listener, dipoles disperse phase-shifted sound in two directions. The listener perceives a diffuse atmosphere that fills the room, the same effect large cinemas achieve with a large number of speakers arranged behind the viewers.
For gamers, the Theater 500 Surround’s dipoles can be switched off for better localisation of objects and opponents. Each T 500 DR 16 dipole comes with integrated keyhole brackets for easy wall mounting.

The new subwoofer

The S 6000 SW is Teufel’s premium universal subwoofer model designed and developed in Berlin. The active sub is powered by an extremely low-noise amplifier with plenty of setting options including volume, phase switch, auto level switch and high pass filter. A recessed amplifier makes it possible to place the subwoofer directly against the wall.
The S 6000 SW employs a 300 mm woofer to push the low end all the way down to 28 Hz. Teufel’s proprietary Air Stream Bass technology uses a specially constructed air vent to minimized wind noise at high levels.

"For a total price of 1.700 Euros Teufel presents a exciting and fair step up in the world of sound for upmarket home cinema. Above all, lovers of real home cinema sound with all its shades and full dynamics will love the Theater 500 from Teufel. The powerful stand speaker set brings the cinema-typical diffuse sound into the home four walls very well. The surround sound set is consists of a potential centre speaker, with a active subwoofer and two Dipol rear-speakers. And matched with the more discreet design thet set can easily fit in to any room. With this Teufel presents its third generation, and imporved version on the market."

Theater 500 Surround "5.1-Set" review of www.av-magazin.de
"with higher sounds and grand sound for music and films - equally impressive"
www.av-magazin.de 19.12.2016
"The Theater 500 Surround Set sounds incredibly broadband and agile. The film music is distributed very nicely in the room, so that one has the feeling of being directly involved in the cinematic events. The subwoofer accompanies the acoustic stage with abysmally deep but nevertheless clean bass, while the highs come along with crystal-clear and resolving melt. Thanks to the delay-corrected arrangement of the drivers, the spatial staggering of film music and sound effects is perfect.

"The Teufel set shines with a first-class locating sharpness that lets the laser cannons wander through our listening room. The explosions are transmitted by the huge active bass. The subwoofer is extremely powerful and level-resistant, which does not lose its expressiveness even at high volumes.

"The film dialogues are also brilliantly transformed by the centre. Thanks to the high chassis quality and the tonal-neutral overall tuning, voices sound particularly natural - even outside the sweet spot. The 5.1 set of Cece Winans' Gospel-Jazz is a brilliant example of this. The velvety soul voice sounds with such vivid authenticity that you inevitably get goose bumps."

"this is what home cinema should be"
Heimkino Magazin 12|01-2017
"The Teufel set reproduced our test film "X-Men: Apocalypse“ in top form: Punchy and dynamic with incredibly thrilling sound effects thrown into the listening room. Lively sparkling ice crystals are wonderfully separated from the rich, low frequency rumbling in the fight scene during the opening sequence. The dialogue between the main characters can also be clearly heard in spite of the complex sound effects. The Teufel set plays from all channels as from a single mould, but still allows special effects to be clearly distinguished and the action to be distinctly localised in the room. There are no unpleasant spikes in the sound, no noticeable colouration or compression artefacts, even in the treble range, and the subwoofer clearly enjoys playing with the set – this is what home cinema should be. All-in-all, the new set hasn’t lost any of the git and dynamics of its predecessor, but rather gained in terms of subtly and precision.”

Conclusion:
"The new Theater 500 Surround can be recommended to those who love home cinema sound with full dynamics and all gradations of sound. The clever tower speaker set paired with a potent centre, two rear dipoles for a immersivley diffuse sound typical of cinemas and powerful active subwoofer transforms every living room into a true home cinema. The Theater 500’s workmanship is more than adequate and the 5.1 set’s discrete design can be easily integrated into any interior.”
