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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

        More than just speakers!
        5 stars quality! 5 star design! In the white colour, simply top.5 star sound! There is nothing to criticise. Music dynamically balanced and also with many other settings all around successful. I think the sound is more than fair for the price.
        Just right!
        Let me start by saying that I do not consider myself an audiophile. I love music like everyone else. I can enjoy a CD every now and then, or even play a record. If a nice piece of music doesn't cost you your head, it's win-win for me.For a while I was looking around for speakers. I saw a lot of reviews on youtube of different brands. I also came across the Teufels ultima 40. But like everyone says, you have to listen with your own ears in your own environment. I still have an older pioneer amplifier in the attic, so I could listen. You go to a shop, but most of them don't like that "borrowing" at all. You can listen there in their own made room. To me, that is not at all representative of how it sounds at home. Bringing your own amplifier is also not so obvious. I understand, they prefer to sell an amplifier as well. So I searched the internet for speakers to try at home. And I ended up at Teufel again. I immediately ordered a set, and a week later they were in my house. I ordered a set straight away, and a week later they were in my house. What a nice piece of music comes out of it. On my budget Pioneer amplifier from 2014. Why Teufel? If one is willing to let you test the speakers for 8 weeks then one has confidence in one's own product. In addition, there is also a 12-year warranty. If they have confidence in their own product, I think that's a good thing. If they sell crap and of the 10 sets 10 come back, they will not last long. In short, I am exceptionally satisfied with Teufel. And my next purchase will be again in the Teufel line. Preferably a teufel amplifier with the blu-ray. Subwoofer probably not. There is so much bass in the Ultima 40. I do not miss my old subwoofer from the 5.1 set at all! In fact, there is so much power from the speakers that I have much more room-filling sound than my old 5.1 set.Design:Furthermore, the speakers just look very good. We have the white variant. They stand solidly on the floor. Against all audiophile laws, they are close to the wall. Straight to the front. On a laminate floor. With a table in front of it. With us, the room is lived in. Kids walk around with friends. I can't put the speakers in the middle of the room, but when I'm alone, I move them away from the wall, turn them towards me and enjoy. The bass is tighter than when they're right up against the wall. 95% of the time they are just against the wall.They are quite heavy. So they don't just fall over. We sometimes have a cat on top of the speaker, nice and high! If it jumps off, almost nothing happens, you just see the speaker move a bit. In short, for 400 euros. 8 weeks home trial, 12 years warranty. Such a great sound! Tip of the day: Buy banana plugs right away. Because screwing the speakers with the cable is not a success if you regularly move the speaker from its place. Floepen out.
        Evaluation
        Rich sound, very good workmanship, easy to connect, and well packaged and delivered quickly. Their price is definitely justified.

        Powerful and super price/performance
        These speakers are very well made and not lightweight - at 23 kg they weigh quite a bit. Not a clunker, but an all-round successful speaker with a sound that fills my living room of almost 30m². My impression is good all round and I am thrilled with the reproduction over the entire range. I miss a "separating layer" between the stand and the floor. It looks very plastic-like at this point and makes weals in the wooden floor when you try to move the speakers. Felt glides would not be bad. I don't know if this has any influence on the sound.
        👍
        I use the speakers with a Denon PMA-800NE in a 25 m² living room. I find the sound very clear even when listening to loud music.When watching films, the speech is very clear and understandable, background noises come across very well, and action-packed scenes sound bombastic.These are my first Teufel speakers and I hope they will accompany me for many years to come.
        A lot of sound for the money
        The speakers are higher than I expected. Nevertheless, I don't find them clunky. But I'm glad I ordered the white ones, they look less monolithic. I'm satisfied with the sound, especially in this price range. The bass has a lot of punch, so I have to turn down the bass a bit. The treble sounds transparent to my ear, the upper mids sometimes a bit sharp. Overall, I find the sound impression somehow "rough", I don't know how else to describe it. The speakers don't gloss over anything in the audio signal. But they don't swallow anything either.The packaging was okay, two big speakers, just on the edge of their stability. I felt sorry for the DHL messenger. Difficult to lift the heavy speakers out of the comparatively light cartons when unpacking, especially as they are encased in slippery plastic. Once they have been brought to a standstill, nothing can knock them over again so easily.perfect for the intended use as everyday speakers in the family living room. I also like to put my armchair in the optimal zone, lean back and enjoy with my eyes closed.
        Good product
        Satisfied, good sound, good price quality, well finished structure.

        First class speakers
        I have had these speakers on my wish list for a while, now I have them and I am thrilled.

        Perfect
        From ordering to delivery to enjoying the good sound, everything was perfect. The workmanship and the sound of the speakers are very good. If you only want to hear the bass and not feel it, you will be satisfied. For the rest, you just need a sub to go with it. Conclusion: I give it a very clear buy recommendation.
