"...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.

Berlin's bestseller

For years, the Ultima series has stood for a very good price to performance ratio. You won't get so much sound for such a good price anywhere else. Featuring superior audio technologies, the Ultima speakers deliver a perfectly balanced playback and are suitable for rock, pop, electro, classical and jazz music, as well as gaming and of course films. The new Ultima speakers are recognisable by the logo above the tweeter. They are the successor to the Ultima Mk2 series.

Compatible with all AV receivers

Thanks to their high efficiency, the Ultima speakers work together with any AV receiver. If you want to provide sound for rooms over 20 m², we recommend AV receivers from around the 400 € mark.

Developed in Berlin

The complete development of the Ultima series, as well as all other speaker series, takes place here in Berlin in our laboratories and special anechoic audio rooms. Optimisation and refinement has been carried out over the years in close cooperation with our design team. Of course, customer feedback continues to act as a crucial factor in the further development of all our products.

Building the first prototype

    Tweeter with phase plug and waveguide

    The phase plug and waveguide built into the tweeter are unusual features for a product in this price range. They create even crisper sound precision in the high-frequency range.

    Phase plug
    Phase plug for avoidance of phase shift cancellations resulting in improved transparency and directional behaviour of higher frequencies.
    Teufel Stereo-Lautsprecher Ultima 40 Mk3
    Waveguide
    Waveguide for a very precise location of individual sound sources and precise stage imaging of all instruments and voices.

    Kevlar mid-range driver with phase plug

    The mid-range driver is not only particularly large, but also has a phase plug. The result is very good speech intelligibility and a particularly warm, natural mid-range. This also expands the listening area in which listeners enjoy optimum sound.

    Teufel Stereo-Lautsprecher Ultima 40 Mk3

    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.

    Design and materials

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

    Modern, timeless design

    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.

      Two large bass reflex tubes with a trumpet tube attachment minimise any current noise - no other manufacturer makes this much effort.

          "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."

          "If you’re looking for something different, then the Teufel Ultima 40 is certainly one to check out. I put these on par with the Klipsch R-24F. However, I would say the R-24F has a more controlled bass response than the Ultima 40. If you’re looking for a stereo pair, then you should definitely consider the Ultima 40 Active over the passive model. You’ll get better value for money by not having to spend extra on an amplifier and cabling as well as a more efficient speaker with factory fitted and tested amplification. If you’re looking for a full surround sound system, you have the option of the 5.1 Ultima Series which is an absolute gem of a system and also very affordable for the size and quality you get."

        the best decision in years!
        Initially I approached the decision to order speakers that I hadn't heard before very cautiously. However, your offer to take back the product in case of dissatisfaction convinced me. Order and delivery rehearsals and reliable. Price performance top. That this had been the right decision can only be evaluated as the right decision by the clear improvement of the sound experience, which I received as equivalent. I am completely satisfied and have celebrated my decision more than once (loudly). Recommendation guaranteed. MfG
        Ultima 40
        Absolutely top!
        (automatisch übersetzt *)
        Excellent
        Have them as rear surround speakers as an addition. Super sound, first wanted the definion but these are perfectly rich. Good workmanship and fast delivery. Thank you. I'll take care of it.

        Teufel Ultima 40 mk3...
        04-12-2018 Teufel Ultima 40 mk3 ordered. Friday 07-12-2018 they were already playing in our living room. We had heard our NAD C388 amplifier play on DALI speakers in the shop. When we connected the Teufel Ultima 40 mk3 to the NAD C388 amplifier at home, we said to each other... "We haven't heard this sound before in the shop." In one word, the sound is Top!
        Great sound!!!!!
        The delivery went perfectly. The speakers look very nice. Connection problem-free . I operate the speakers with a D Class ICEpower 125ASX2. Perfect sound!! Everything went super... Thanks to the team "Teufelish"...:):)
        Sensational sound for real money
        One thing can be said directly: you have to hear them yourself to judge the sound. However, it also requires a top AMP to achieve the appropriate performance. But if you have the right AMP, then you have the joy of a sound that literally knocks you down. With the right Zuspilgerät offers here an experience that is impossible in this price class. One feels good all around, already with the first tone. Qualitatively, the Teufel is far ahead without it. The workmanship leaves little room for complaining. I enjoyed it from the first second from unpacking to plugging in and finally listening. After a long search I finally found a really good floorstanding loudspeaker and it also looks mega. I do not have to give a buy recommendation, they are simply a must.
        Super sound
        Since I listen to a lot of music, I decided to sell my 5.1 system. I've been looking for hifi loudspeakers from other manufacturers for some time now. Since I have been a satisfied Teufel customer for a long time, I ordered this Ultima 40 for a trial. The Ultima connected to the amplifier NR1509 by Marantz, very good settings made and already the Ultima and the amplifier show best performance. Whether music or film sound, I'm totally thrilled and won't give away the Ultima anymore. Many thanks to Teufel and Marantz
        I'm just thrilled
        I am more than satisfied with the quality and the sound, I drive the two speakers with a Yamaha htr 3067 With 100 watts per channel. No matter if TV/movies about Dolby or music about stereo operation, there is always a crystal clear sound and rich bass. My living room of approx. 32 m2 will also be sounded at half the amplifier power so far that I could separate from my active subwoofer! I can only advise anyone who is thinking of buying it to do so, you will not regret it! Many thanks to the Teufel team, keep up the good work.
        Entry into the HIFI world
        Got the Teufels UL 40 MK 3 since 1 day, my first impression: Very valuable and heavy. Noble and simple. The most important thing is the sound. In my opinion, a revelation. for every Musick lover. Of course, the lighting must fit (with me preamplifier Rotel/RC-990BX and power amplifier Rotel/RB-990BX and CD player Rotel/RCD-971,pure stereo operation) A clear recommendation to buy from me.
