Ultima 40 Active generates its own heavy sound. That is due to an integrated Class-D amplifier, that can generate up to 250 watts. So you don't need any extra extreme subwoofers.

Design and materials

No shortcuts were taken when it came to optimising our Ultima speakers. Here are the highlights of the new range:

  • Teufel Stereo-Lautsprecher Ultima 40 Mk3

    The solid, gently curved MDF housing is the result of more than 30 years of Teufel experience and modern speaker technology.
3-way system
The foundation for good sound lies in the design of the 3-way system, which has been further developed and improved over many years. The drivers work together in harmony across all frequency ranges, resulting in an extremely smooth and clear sound reproduction.
  • Teufel Stereo-Lautsprecher Ultima 40 Mk3
    Close-fitting driver for a vivid, balanced sound reproduction
  • Teufel Stereo-Lautsprecher Ultima 40 Mk3
    Two large bass reflex tubes with a trumpet tube attachment minimise any current noise - no other manufacturer makes this much effort.

    All drivers were measured with a laser using Klippel measurement technology in order to detect the smallest tolerances.
Double bass – a real Teufel in every respect

Especially if you're looking for full bass without a subwoofer, this full-range speaker is the right choice. Two large 165 mm fibreglass woofers provide a particularly precise low-frequency reproduction. The long stroke ensures distortion-free playback even at high levels. You don't need an additional subwoofer.

Ultima 40 Active review of Stereoplay
"...young and lively..."
Stereoplay 01/2019
"It's a rare deal to get a standing loudspeaker for 500 Euros. However, the final product is no less than the products that cost double so much. The sound distribution is excellent, the tone is young and lively, but fundamentally good." (Translated from German).

"...created a full atmosphere and gave the impression of a large concert arena"
Video 11/2018
"[...] The Ultima set created a full atmosphere and gave the impression of a large concert arena. […]"

"Voice reproduction in music and speech intelligibility in film were at the level of many sets, which cost twice as much. The Berliners also managed the spatial representation and expansion of the imaginary space extremely well."

"The new Ultima 5.1 set proves to be a special offer with an elegant, lively playing style, a really great spatial image and a wide soundstage. [...]"

NB: The Ultima 40 (2018) speaker pair was rated as part of a Ultima 40 Surround 5.1 test.

"played dynamically and created a lively sound image"
Audio 11/2018
"An Ultima sounds like an Ultima, that's what we expected. It played dynamically and created a lively sound image. Even though the reproduction sometimes seems too closed and Marla Glen's voice showed a hint of too much colour, the loudspeaker was pleasantly striking compared to the 2016 model with a somewhat airier high-frequency reproduction. This gave the sound a little more three-dimensionality."

"...enjoy every style of listening to music..."
www.lowbeats.de 24.11.2018
"The Ultima 40 is a bargain when it comes to third generation and is a winner the best sense. Not one thing out of place, sonically perfectly balanced sound. Not quite a miracle, but a loudspeaker with which you can enjoy listening to any kind of music. I don't know of a better alternative for all people who only want to spend a little money and still want to enjoy a louder sound. This is also in part, as the Ultima 40 has been developed to work practically with smaller amplifiers and installation in smaller rooms." (Translated from German)

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.
My Bluetooth speaker produces a lesser quality sound with my Windows PC or laptop.
It could be that the speaker is connected as a device with speakerphone function. Please go to: settings menu > devices and printer > BOOMSTER (or other Bluetooth device). Right click on the device and remove the check mark next to the “speakerphone” option.
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.
