DEVELOPED IN BERLIN

The Theater 500 was designed for highly transparent playback, making it the perfect companion for movie sound, gaming and music. Unlike systems engineered to quickly impress and just as quickly fatigue the ears, the Theater 500 produces no unnaturally elevated bass, no sharp and shrill treble. The following features elevate the Theater 500 above standard stereo 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.

Damping chamber
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.

Downfiring bass reflex system
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

The Theater 500 uses an authentic 3-way driver system. The amply equipped system employs a total of 2 bass woofers with lightweight but rigid Kevlar membranes to produce deep, resonant bass without an additional subwoofer. The midrange drivers and tweeters delineate voices and instruments with incredible precision, resulting in an almost tangible soundscape.

Advanced Klippel measurements are used to make an already excellent system even better. This technology uses lasers to detect tiny imperfections along the driver membranes, allowing them to be corrected for an improved frequency response.

Teufel Time Alignment Technology

The Theater 500’s recessed tweeter corrects differences in propagation time for a well-structured sound. Vocals, instruments and sound effects are rendered clearly and with great naturalness. Just like a live event, you’ll be able to distinguish the relative positions of the instruments and vocalists to each other.

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.

Very satisfied
The floorstanding loudspeakers were chosen because the dimensions are not quite as lavish as comparable speakers and my space in the living room is not as luxuriant in this location. Actually I wanted to have speakers with 20 cm woofers for the bass, but they are too big for my living room, so I chose the Theater 500 with two 16 cm woofers. The result was very surprising for me, because they produce a crystal clear, powerful bass even at lower volumes. The mids and highs also completely convince me. The day after next after the order was placed, the carrier delivered the speakers on a one-way pallet. From my point of view I can warmly recommend these loudspeakers, the price has even been reduced again at the moment.
Full-bodied loudspeaker
Much has been written about this loudspeaker. I would like to share my experiences here as briefly as possible in comparison with my predecessor loudspeaker Jamo S628:My Jamo had a pronounced high frequency character. It was almost like using headphones, details were reproduced very accurately and the dynamics were also fantastic. The bass was - despite the 25 woofer on the side - deep but restrained. The Teufel Theater 500 is almost a mirror image of the Jamo. In the high frequency range the Teufel is tuned more reserved, silkier, possibly warmer. It reproduces everything, but does not present all details on a silver platter like the Jamo. On the other hand, the Teufel is more full-bodied in the low frequency range. The Theater 500 reproduces bass impulses in the music that had previously remained hidden from me. While I have rediscovered details in the high frequency range of the music with the Jamo, thanks to the precise and distinctive high tone preparation, I experience the same with the Teufel in the low frequency range. There are so many unknown low frequency passages in various songs that I had simply never heard before. The living room is completely filled by the low frequency range. This makes music really fun. The Teufels play a little less dynamic, but also less exhausting. In order to dissect music in the middle and high frequency range I now use my headphones: The processing is precise and clean. The connections are also suitable for 4mm2 cables, but the included bridges are unfortunately sharp-edged and look cheap. This calls for using the Bi-Wi function. The covers of the speakers can be easily removed and reattached. A complete package that is quite convincing. In any case I am very satisfied.
upright speakers
good sound as far as tuning in to the other purchases (teufel) looks good, where are the little circles in the plastic bag that come with more of julliespeakers? no coasters for these speakers!! no reference or image seen on the instructions for use.
Outstanding sound experience
The speakers give an excellent sound image at all different types of music and volumes. We are thrilled! Order and delivery have worked as expected.

Good trade-off
We have exchanged the Theater 500 for our over 35 years old Sony speakers. Result: a totally new sound experience. Highs and lows are very clearly audible. We are thrilled and give a clear recommendation to buy. However, we will continue to use the existing subwoofer.
Great sound
Finally enjoying my old records from the 80s again with great sound and lots of bass. I had been looking forward to this for a long time. Keep on rockin'
