The top seller from Berlin
For years, the ULTIMA series has been a byword for excellent price to performance ratio. You won't get this much sound for this little money anywhere else. Featuring superior audio technologies, the ULTIMA series delivers perfectly balanced playback to increase your enjoyment of all genres of music, as well as gaming and of course films. We hear just that all the time from enthusiastic industry journalists and customers. The new ULTIMAs can be easily recognized by the label over the tweeter.
At Teufel, all our bundles are designed for finely-tuned high-fidelity playback. As a result, you can experience immersive soundscapes for movies, enjoy rousing concert atmosphere on Blu-ray, and hear exactly where those footsteps are coming from in video games.
Developed in Berlin
Product development for the ULTIMA series, like all our other speaker series, is completed start to finish here in our Berlin labs and anechoic chambers. After years of cross-team refinement and optimization including a healthy dose of customer feedback, the ULTIMA 40 is a true marvel of engineering.
Tweeter with phase plug and waveguide
Two features that are nearly unheard of at this price point are the tweeter's built in phase plug and waveguide, providing for extreme precision in the high-frequency range.
Mitigates phase interference near the tweeter by directing waves outward toward the listener, enhancing response at high-frequency bandpasses.
Exactingly guides each individual sound, keeping all instruments and voices crisp, clear, and distinct.
All around unbeatable
Whether serving as a standalone bookshelf speaker or rear speaker in a surround set, the ULTIMA 20 does not compromise. It fits on a bookshelf, can be placed on a stand, or mounted on a wall. Both visually and sonically, it's the perfect match for its big sister.
Pristinely finished. Made from sturdy MDF with internal struts, Teufel speakers feature long-lasting timeless design.
T 10 Subwoofer
For the first time Teufel offers a subwoofer that can be configured in either front- or down-firing modes. Don't let the 150-Watts fool you. The new Class-D amplifier's high efficiency and extremely low noise mean it can go toe-to-toe with any 300-Watt amplifier.

Design and materials

"...this is a pair of sublime tower speakers, up there with [many] popular consumer audio brands."Outer Audio 05/2019"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."Read more at: https://www.outeraudio.com/teufel-ultima-40-review/More...
