Developed in Berlin

The Theater 500 is the perfect partner for the music of all genres, film sound and games. Short-term impressions due to unnatural bass emphasis or sharp highs are alien to the speakers.

Time Alignment
A system for correcting time alignment enables a better, more precise positioning of vocals and instruments within the stereo panorama.

Constant Directivity Concept
A newly designed waveguide and phase plug ensure broad and even sound dispersion.

A sound-damping chamber specially designed according to the Helmholtz Resonance principle ensures a clean sound. This effectively eliminates the formation of standing waves and unwanted resonances within the enclosure.

Down firing Bassreflexsystem
A bass reflex system prevents unwanted chuffing noise. Cleverly positioned on the bottom of the speaker enclosures, it makes it possible to position the speakers anywhere in the room without altering their sound.

3-way system

A real luxury in this price range: the sophisticated 3-way system. Two woofers with light but stable Kevlar cones produce deep bass even without a subwoofer. The midrange and tweeter reproduce voices and instruments in particular detail for an almost tangible representation of the sound event. The modern Klippel measuring method makes the theatres perfect: because the finest inaccuracies in the diaphragm's vibration curve are detected and eliminated by laser.

Teufel Time Alignment Technology

The phase shift of the specifically positioned tweeter corrects the running time and ensures clear reproduction of the musical events. Voices and instruments, but also sound effects, are presented in detail and can be better located in the stereo panorama. Hear exactly where something is happening.

Constant Directivity Concept

A newly designed wave guide and phase plug gives the system a broad and even sound dispersion. This makes it possible for everyone in the room to enjoy the same well-blended sound with excellent speech intelligibility and localisation.

Innovative damping chamber

Inside the Theater 500, a specially designed damping chamber employs the concept of Helmholtz Resonance to minimize standing waves within the enclosure. This does away with the need to damp the bass reflex vent, allowing the low end to go deeper and work more efficiently. The result is an especially balance soundstage across all volume levels.

Downward-facing bass reflex system

The Theater 500 uses a downward-facing bass reflex system for anywhere room placement. A special oversized vent prevents the creation of wind noise at high volume levels.

the power of
Now I know that the purchase of these columns was a bull's eye. The equipment was assembled by an audiophile friend and was very impressed. After a week he came with "his" music to spend 3 hours enjoying, as he said, souls and ears. Something wonderful!!! If I can add something, I think you should highlight your company name even more through a thin red envelope the whole name of Teufel, or alternatively highlight one of the letters in red. It's not a shame, but the columns ( and more ) have Teufelish power!
Completely new hearing sensation
Switching to the Teufel speakers has definitely paid off! Every day I discover new subtleties when listening, which I never noticed with my old speakers.

Pure quality
From the unpacking to the connection to the sound, everything is very high quality and has a top sound. A good investment!

Floorstanding Loudspeaker Theatre 500
I had speakers from another brand for many years, but their sound never really convinced me. It always sounded powerless. The T 500 floor-standing speakers are much better in terms of sound and quality. As a receiver, I use an Onkyo TX-NR686. For someone who usually only watches TV / films during the week and listens to music (metal, rock...) at the weekend, this is perfectly adequate. In a condominium, you can only turn it up when the neighbours are out. I have also tested this. The sound quality of the speakers is convincing even at high volumes. The sound is sufficient for me and I consider it to be of very good quality. There's always room for improvement, no question. In any case, Teufel has more than convinced me and I give them a clear recommendation.
Theater 500
First of all - the delivery went without a hitch and the speakers meet my expectations. Visually, they enhance my Marantz system extremely. The sound exceeds my expectations. It was really worthwhile to trust the reviews about the speakers.I can only recommend the Theater 500...
Super tight sound !
My Ultima 40 mk2's already sound very good, but this Theater 500 does a lot more, very tight bass and beautiful sound and the mid and high, I control them with a Denon X-4500H, the Theater 500 sounds very nice for stereo sound to play, can even play a little louder than the Ultima 40 mk2, without distortion, the bass is also much less woolly, sound really super ! My setup is now 5.4.1, super quality for an affordable price.
Top class floorstanding loudspeaker
I used to have Teufel T500 MK2 floorstanding loudspeakers which have a very good sound volume, but the Theater 500 floorstanding loudspeakers add to that with a rich sound over the whole frequency band. They can also be easily used in larger rooms. You can recommend them.
completely satisfied
wanted once again "classic" with 2 speakers of stereo sound. It was really worth it. Together with my Yamaha-amplifier really great sound. Everything comes across clearly, every instrument is clear and easy to hear, not only the rich basses, but also the small cymbals etc., finally a complete drumming experience again and not just a standard mash. That's what makes it fun. Also the delivery was on time and to the house, not just outside the door. I would buy again immediately, and at that price. The dreary Corona holidays are saved!
Searched, found.
For years, my old, very cheap teenage bedroom monsters served me well until I suddenly came into contact with high-end speakers. To close the resulting need, but not to spend 7000 € on loudspeakers, was the wish ever since. Since I already own mobile as well as stationary headphones from Teufel and can work well with the character of the brand, I now wanted to approach loudspeakers. So I read and looked, read and looked. In the end I preferred the Theater 500 to the Ultima 40 and the decision was right. Sure: I can't say anything about the Ultima 40, because I didn't run it in comparison, but I'm more than happy with my decision: The Theater 500 runs here with a Sony amplifier in bi-amp mode and has to reproduce metal, punk, but also folk, jazz and classical music well. An official task, which the speakers master with flying colours. The lows are rich and round, the mids to the point and the highs are pleasant, never too shrill but always present. The downfire system makes them easy to handle and the workmanship is impeccable. The decision to install all speakers of the same size in the chassis is very much in line with my aesthetic perception, especially with the covers that are included. The loudspeakers look simple, are discreet and take away one of my biggest concerns when placing them. Because in the pictures, I thought to myself, they look very brute. Of course they are allowed to show what they have to offer. My personal conclusion: All in all I would be in favour of a sixth star. If you want to have very good speakers that do justice to the term "boxing" and don't apply too much of it, I would recommend these chic things. But if you don't care about the outward appearance and appreciate the inner values instead, you can only recommend these great speakers. In this price range there is probably not much that can seriously compete with these speakers - great work, Teufel! Chapeau!
No subwoofer necessary
Before that, I had the Ultima 40, I thought they were good, but the Theater 500 speakers are a blast, good bass and treble. The price-performance ratio is simply amazing, I got it for 589 € incl. postage, a bargain :-))))) I enjoy the speakers.
