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.

Dämpfungskammer
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.

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.

Great Theatre
I bought the Theater 500 (stereo) with a YAMAHA RN602 amplifier over a month ago.The goal was to finally be able to listen to music well again, as I have not had the opportunity to do so in a small flat in the city for over 10 years, which is now available in a house. My old system DENON 535 and JBL speakers had unfortunately not survived the long time and moves.My impressions after the first month:- I experience music completely new - More than positively surprised what you get for relatively little money for a quality in sound, spatiality, etc. - I discover every day with fun new as well as old familiar music,... I am also beginning to experience music- Everyone I have presented my new HIFI system to to date has been positively surprised by the sound quality - some of them musicians. As a (neither) newcomer to the HIFI world, I can't say more, except that I am happy to rediscover a few songs every day ;)
Good sound at a low price
With the Theater 500, you get a pair of speakers that not only cuts a fine figure as a 5.1 system. It also sounds very good when playing music in stereo mode. For this price, you have to search a long time to find something comparable. The speakers sound absolutely balanced, both loud and quiet, in this price range, no droning or anything else. I have them running as a 5. 1. 2 system. I have the Theater 500S in the rear and the Teufel Consons 35 MK3 as treble speakers. They are connected to a Yamaha A2A receiver and I think it's a great combination.
Very beautiful LS
Very satisfied...

Great
These speakers are a considerable improvement on their predecessors, which were exactly the same size. The warm sound and the clearly better bass reproduction is just very pleasant. Even if you turn up the volume a bit more, it sounds good, so no distortion or strange resonances. I have never bought speakers in this price range, but they are well worth their money. A small point of criticism is that the cover plates for the speakers are held in place by magnets. That is a nice solution as long as nobody walks close to your speakers. If that happens, it looks a bit strange, but it is easy to restore. The build quality and finish of these speakers is really great and certainly does "German" and solid.
What a sound!
To cut a long story short, my amplifier has been glowing ever since I received the beautiful Teufel Theater 500 speakers a few weeks ago. And whether I'm playing late piano sonatas by Beethoven with Levitt at the piano, have a hankering for the guitar duel on Friday Night in San Francisco or urgently need to hear Castles Made Of Sand by Hendrix, the sound is simply stunning. You can hear the individual instruments so clearly and finely tuned as I have never experienced before. In the truest sense of the word, philharmonic speakers! My wife and daughter are also blown away, so it's the first time I've had to negotiate what to play.Lastly, I have to mention that the delivery was impeccably punctual. And I spoke to incredibly nice and competent Teufel staff on two phone calls, who arranged everything as requested. So I can only award 12 out of 10 points and say thank you from the bottom of my heart. For the joy and the happy moments in these depressing pandemic times that you are giving us with the speakers.
Excellent
I wrestled with myself for a long time whether I really needed new ones, because the old ones were not broken. Now they are in the living room and what can I say, the sound is simply amazing. Rich bass and crystal clear highs, pure music enjoyment. The delivery, from the order to the shipping company, was a perfect 1.
Great speakers
Very clear, green sound..classical, pop, rock...fine!!!!!!
