Testbericht Video Stereo-Lautsprecher Ultima 40 sehr gut
"...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.

      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.

          "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."

        smaller price
        these loudspeakers are simply very good for the small price, no matter if you listen to them in stereo or in connection with the 5.1 system. they cause goose bumps. many thanks to you technicians and loudspeaker builders from Teufel what you have achieved. best regards from dortmund h. rischenau
        Excellente Suprise
        After much hesitation, I decided to acquire these speakers to replace tired JBLs. The result is excellent. Smoothness with a striking ability to rise in power, in a 70m2 room. The result is really surprising: No saturation, no heaviness or drag for classic as well as for POP. Moreover, the ability to go down to the bass (without a subwoofer) is quite surprising for floorstanding speakers (the Pink-floyd or Genesis bass pedals are not very good...): I can only recommend it in view of the price/quality ratio.
        Top stuff
        Best speakers I have ever had! Buy those things!
