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.
    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.

    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.

        Differentiated and clear sound
        The old speakers I built myself 32 years ago with ribbon tweeter and 10 cm midrange were wider and lower because of the 30 cm woofer. Compared to the Ultima, they were, well, more noisy. How will we keep them as party speakers.The Ultima 40s are a clear statement, even from the outside. They stand in a four-metre-high room with an open roof pitch. Many corners and edges, fir wood and cork provide damping and good acoustics. It starts with Laura Jurd: To the Earth. The first impression: Wow! What a clean and differentiated sound! We continue with jazz: Duke Ellington, Yumi Ito, Garbarek. Then classical music. A cello concerto by Elgar, the piano bagatelles by Beethoven. A selection of opera music is also convincing. But Reihnahrd Mey, Martin Garrix, AC DC, Cash and Gallagher also come across well. Our Marantz amplifier is actually a size too small for the Ultima 40, but it is not intended to test the limits of the technology. The volume is always (or mostly) in the moderate range. The sound of the speakers is powerful, but not obtrusive. It is not necessary to "turn it up", music and speech are clearly and recognisably placed in the room. Of course, at 65 years of age, we no longer have the hearing of a young person, but it's still pleasingly good. The Ultima 40 convinced us. A great pair of speakers in this price range!

        Very good overall impression
        Superb sound in highs and lows, visually very appealing, do not seem oppressive despite their impressive size.

        Perfect
        Great sound, super design. We are very satisfied

        Sound
        The sound is good and pure. only comment is that the bass sound could be a bit wider so that the visit also has the beautiful sound, because the speakers certainly have that

        Stereo/home theatre floor-standing speakers
        The only thing that could be improved is the front cover because it is not easy to remove, perhaps replacing the current plastic frame with magnets as other manufacturers do, The only thing that could be improved is the front cover because it is not easy to remove, perhaps replacing the current hooks with magnets as other manufacturers do, and then I would change the plastic frame of the cover and eliminate all that plastic cobweb that suffocates the sound of the speakers, I would propose a rectangle with two central reinforcements so as to leave free the area where the speakers, the two woofers and the midrange with the tweeter, are housed. Anyway, they are excellent floorstanding speakers and I recommend them to all my friends,
        😍
        We're just dancing at home now! We love the sound - especially the bass is perfect!

        Purchase ULTIMA 40 Loudspeaker
        The playback quality from all sources (Blu-ray, tuner, record player, TV) connected via my amplifier is impressive; my wife also praises the good sound quality, the price-performance ratio for the speakers is good.
        Perfect
        The speakers have a very good price-performance ratio. The appearance (also very important for me) and the sound leave nothing to be desired. At low and higher volumes, the speakers show a very balanced performance - very clear highs and (if desired) voluminous, melodious bass. I use the speakers with a DENON M41-DAB. I preferred the speakers to a soundbar because of the better stereo effect.
        Alles Top
        Super fast delivery. The speakers were safely packed and arrived undamaged. I don't have a direct comparison and I'm not a HIFI expert, but I think the reproduction quality is very good and the price-performance ratio is top.
