"[W]hoever thinks that 5.1 loudspeakers aren’t for music lovers hasn’t yet heard Teufel’s System 4 – an impressive test winner."
Audio Video Foto Bild 11-12/2014
"Seven loudspeakers were in our test. Teufel’s System 4 THX sounded truly heavenly: The set equipped with dipole speakers positioned itself at the top of the sound systems.”

"[W]hoever thinks that 5.1 loudspeakers aren’t for music lovers hasn’t yet heard Teufel’s System 4 – an impressive test winner.“

"A control dial on the back of the subwoofer should be set to 80 Hz for nearly faultless surround sound. At this setting, voices as well as the bass are precisely emitted from the centre position. The dipole surround loudspeakers [...] have a detailed sound in the mid and high range and come across naturally. The System 4 performs equally well with stereo sound – only markedly larger floorstanding loudspeakers play music more homogenously.“

3 identical front speakers

The best things come in small packages. The compact yet high-performance, powerful satellites offer exteremely balanced playback for films and all music genres. We spent several months and went through countless prototypes to determine the final position of the set’s special flat membranes as well as the shape of the enclosure, baffle, and grilles. The result is an extraordinarily wide and uniform emission for an immersive surround sound that delivers an authentic THX experience.

Teufel System 4 THX

Design, installation, connection

The lacquered side panels provide additional stability and minimise cabinet resonance. The contrast finish is subtly supported by red plastic inlays in the shadow gaps. The speakers can be easily attached to the wall with the integrated keyhole holder. With the AC 7500 SM wall mount bracket, the speakers can also be swivelled horizontally. Thanks to its efficient speakers, the System 4 also plays superior quality sound even with inexpensive AV receivers (a THX license is not necessary).

4 THX S 400 FCR Lautsprecher null Weiss

Bringing cinema sound to your living room

The System 4 offers all the advantages of THX tested and certified acoustics, but is small enough to be easily integrated into any living space. The ability to reproduce not only movie soundtracks but all kinds of music at the highest Hi-Fi level makes the System 4 an excellent and very versatile 5.1 home cinema set.

THX centre for the best speech intelligibility

With 2 mid-range drivers, this centre offers powerful, distortion-free sound and high speech intelligibility for films and gaming - even at low volume. The sound is tuned to the System 4 satellites. Thanks to its shallow depth, the device can be easily mounted on the wall) or on a shelf.

THX dipole speaker for the ultimate cinema atmosphere

The THX dipoles ’ omnidirectional lateral dispersion greatly contributes to the realistic sound reproduction of the rear speakers. Two midrange drivers and two tweeters produce enough power to reproduce even very dynamic soundtracks with a high degree of realism. A cinematic soundstage, whereby individual surround channels are reproduced by multiple loudspeakers, is convincingly simulated by dipole speakers.

System 4 THX Teufel Dipol Lautsprecher S 400 D

Subwoofer S 4000 SW

The S 4000 SW offers ultra-low bass up to 35 Hz with extremely slim dimensions. It has three 130 mm bass drivers with an enormous lifting capacity of 8 mm. This movement can generate as much sound pressure as is generated by a considerably larger design.

The drivers of the subwoofer are the real sensation: a strong magnet, tightest tolerances in the air gap and the coil carrier as well as high-strength bonding thanks to innovative manufacturing processes enable extraordinary loads and thus the lowest, cleanest frequencies. The proven Teufel-DPU technology ensures the suppression of ny possible ambient noise in the reflex channel. For this purpose, there is an automatic switch-on and switch-off as well as extensive setting options and a protective circuit.

    "At the present time, THX doesn’t get any smaller or better.”
    video 04/2014
    Testbericht - Video - System 4 Kauftipp
    Testbericht - Video - System 4 sehr gut
    "Teufel was one of the first speaker  companies to receive the exacting THX seal of approval. The Berliners have now even managed to create the smallest THX set in the world [...]”

    "[T]hese loudspeakers [...] designed for living room use [should] lead to more acceptance for five speaker systems in living rooms. [The] three identical front speakers in the System 4 set have barely 7.5 liters of volume. [...] THX dipole transducers take care of the sound in the back of the room. [...] A 2-way driver arrangement radiates towards the front, another towards the back. All five speakers have so-called keyhole brackets for wall mounting [...] For power, a narrow, 50 centimeter high subwoofer comes into play. [...] "

    Setting the tone for its price class

    "In 2.1 mode, the sealed, broadly dispersed playback will win you over: No frequency range pushed its way to the fore. Voices were clearly rendered without overly emphasizing the “S” sounds. The 5.1 mode presents a similarly cohesive picture: Everything comes together. The homogeneity and tonality were first class in the front thanks to three identical speakers, the surround image was inconspicuous and effective thanks to the dipoles. This means: In the back, only the atmosphere for the given scene is produced – this is how it should be.”

    Conclusion

    "The System 4 plays masterfully for its size. The subwoofer nearly achieves the 30 Hertz mark and effortlessly renders action scenes. In addition, there is a nearly faultless tonality from the three identical front loudspeakers. A loudspeaker set for 1,000 Euros that allows one to enjoy a home cinema feeling in the living room and brings along its own hi-fi credentials. At the present time, THX doesn’t get any smaller or better.”

    "Compact, sleek, with lively playback, level stability, and enormous dimensionality that is even well suited to 2.1 use."
    Area DVD 10/2013
    Testbericht - Area DVD - Preisklassen-Referenz
    TEST: Teufel’s System 4 with THX Compact Speaker System Certification

    "THX and Teufel are two names that go together, and for a long time now. [...] The latest incarnation of the System 4 THX [...] is the world’s first loudspeaker system with THX Compact Speaker System certification. Teufel primarily designed [...] the System 4 for use in smaller to mid-size rooms. [...] Tonal balance over the entire transmission range and two dipole speakers typically used by Teufel for surround sound in its home cinema systems are additional features.“

    "100 watts continuous power handling capacity and 130 watts of transient maximum power handling capacity for such small loudspeakers speaks for itself. […] The compact THX loudspeakers […] create a maximum sound pressure level of 102dB/1m – pretty impressive.“
     
    "The S 4000 SW active subwoofer is equipped with three 130 mm bass drivers made from coated cellulose designed according to the principle of a large combined membrane surface area for an advantage shared by each of the three 130 mm drivers: The small bass chassis are fast and thereby capable of a sound reproduction with a high degree of impulse fidelity with even smaller bass effects. Frequencies from 35 to 200 Hz are reproduced […] To prevent any disturbance from wind noise, the S 4000 SW uses Teufel’s proprietary DPU reflex technology for the cleanest possible bass sound and the effective prevention of wind noise.

    Conclusion


    "Under new management, Teufel has been returning to its roots and thereby to its old strengths – at least this has been our impression. […] Those newly in charge of Teufel  have brought accolades to themselves with the System 4. It doesn’t matter that the product responsible for this truly great deed isn’t an expensive show model, but rather a loudspeaker constructed with razor sharp precision for the needs of modern home cinema fans: Compact, sleek, with lively playback, level stability, and enormous dimensionality that is even well suited to 2.1 use.

    "It is seldom the case that a compact 5.1 set is able to imitate the sound of larger loudspeakers as well as Teufel’s new System 4 THX Compact."
    audiovision 09/2013
    audiovision_highlight
    Testbericht - audiovision - Stromsparer '13
    “For many years now, compact sub/sat systems have been all the rage. If they carry the THX logo like the [...] Teufel System 7 THX Select 2 or the System 5 THX Select 2, one can even expect a high level of dynamism and rich bass. The new System 4 THX Compact from the Berlin direct sales company is even smaller. It therefore carries the THX Compact certification, has an attractive look, and still manages to sound incredibly good.“

    "The THX Compact Speaker System certification introduced in 2012 sets the bar somewhat lower demanding 105 decibels of sound pressure in small rooms up to  [...] approximately 12 square meters. These guidelines are met by the word’s first THX certified Compact Speaker System from Teufel making it especially suitable for apartments with thinner or walls or less space. The use of three identically constructed front speakers proved its practical value by producing a very homogenous sound. The flat bass/midrange drivers and tweeter form a compact triangle on the S 400 FCR speakers’  22 centimetre wide baffle allowing for a very broad dispersion.”

    “With a depth of just 13 centimetres, the front satellites lie flat against the wall for a very inconspicuous look. Teufel freshened up a standard square design with slanted white sides and red decorative trim. [...]  The same design complements the S 400 D dipoles with anti-phase tweeters and the S 4000 SW subwoofer in this 5.1 set. A 200 watt amplifier powers a compact 15 mm high excursion bass driver allowing for an enclosure width of just 24 centimetres.”

    "Along with their broad dispersion, the front satellites score points with a very balanced frequency response. In spite of just four litres of enclosure volume, they  [...] only start going flat under 140 Hz. The even more compactly built dipoles don’t offer the same wide dispersion angle and display a certain bathtub characteristic in frequency response, but they still manage to hold their own all the way down to the bass frequencies. [...] Level matching with pink noise underscores the pleasantly rounded-out and warm character of the front satellites that, even when placed in a free-standing arrangement, emit a tone that’s more consistent with a much larger loudspeaker set. The Teufel ensemble delivered an excellent performance of the animated movie ‘Werner – Volles Rooäää’ (German): The dialogue from left to right as well as in every seated listening position was very clear, understandable, and accompanied by a full background sound. The precision and reproduction of moving sounds was surprising as were the steady levels, even at high volumes.  [...] The Dolby HD title ‚’They Can’t Take That Away From Me’ with Jane Monheit revealed other qualities, such as subtle nuances and timbres as well as consistently relaxed and refined listening enjoyment.”

    "Musicality and balance are the true strengths of the compact THX set from Teufel. Even long listening sessions don’t reveal any flaws that could disturb the fine impulse fidelity of the soundstage. The combination of subwoofer and mini satellites skilfully masters even the rich sound of Toscho Todorovics ‘Blues Company.’”

    Conclusion
    "It is seldom the case that a compact 5.1 set is able to imitate the sound of larger loudspeakers as well as Teufel’s new System 4 THX Compact. The fullness of the sound, balanced tone and homogenous surround sound were consistently impressive. In spite of a slightly limited low bass, the set is a real highlight.”

The loudspeakers are the best I have ever bought and I have never heard background noise (rain) so clearly. I also like the design in white and black very much. Especially the rear dipole speakers are the hammer. The subwoofer is also very good. The only point of criticism is that the suspension is no longer up-to-date when mounted on the wall. Here there is a simple solution: a tab that is jagged on the bottom. This gives a little more play, is more flexible with the screws and allows the speaker to be hung from above. But otherwise a clear recommendation to buy.

System 4
Since Teufel is taking the THX program off the market, I bought them at the offer price. Before that I had an 11 year old compact system from LG, which was really not bad. But when I connected the speakers to my new Marantz amplifier, and watched the first movie, I was more than surprised, the sound is unlike my old one, a difference, like day and night. Glass clear sound, even a sound format with only DD5.1 sounds bombastic. The subwoofer is awesome. Pure cinema,perfect! The speakers look great&the workmanship is superb. I have no regrets about buying them. Unfortunately Teufel couldn't sell me any additional dipole speakers, because I wanted to have 7.1. Thanks to Teufel for the fast and perfect delivery.

Small, compact and strong
After some drivers of my really good but over 20 years old THX surround speakers became porous and cracked, I was now faced with the choice of a new purchase or repair. But now I also wanted to meet my wife and decided on this compact set, which also fitted perfectly into the living room with the white side panels. The white panels give the speakers a very noble and modern look. Since I was extremely spoiled by my old speakers, especially by my 2 subwoofers, I had already considered a little that this small system would rather be a compromise. But far from it, the subwoofer is powerful, very clean and beyond any doubt, unbelievable in the size of the drivers. The resolution and presentation of the speakers is grandiose. Clear purchase recommendation for this living room friendly set. (But I will definitely repair my old speakers on occasion and use them elsewhere)

Good box set
I had before this set, a composite 5.1 system from different manufacturers. You can tell the difference. But as soon as 5.1 is switched to stereo, I lack some volume. So a point deduction. But if you bought the set mainly for movie playback, like me, you can confidently award full points. Because I bought the set directly from Teufel for a great offer, I get full points for price/performance. To sum up: A good THX set from the Teufel, with slight improvement possibilities. Hence 4.5 points.

Good price, good performance
I became attentive by an acquaintance to this plant and got it then also finally to me. The construction was simple and went quickly. In combination with the Denon AVR-X2500H I have everything I need. The bass is precise and fills the whole room - be it for movies or music. The heights are present, but not too intrusive or disturbing. All in all, I have exactly the sound image that I have in my head. In short: I am definitely satisfied.

The best I've ever had
Recently I bought the 4THX system and I am really impressed! Strong sound, crunchy bass and the look are also right - no comparison to my previous system. It has always been a bit more expensive to have a Teufel at home, but she was in my offer when I bought her and for 200 euros less, I liked to let the dark power in to the door. Absolute buy recommendation from me!
crystal clear sound
I am completely satisfied so far. one can only recommend it even if it is the "older generation" of the THX series.
