Downward-facing bass reflex system

The Theater 500S 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.

Teufel Time Alignment Technology

The Theater 500S’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 give 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.

2-way system

Our engineers constructed the Theater 500S with a crossover frequency outside of the human vocal range. This gives voices and instruments an incredibly natural sound.

Simply great sound

The system’s crossover was kept simple in order to compensate for any phase shifts. The result is an especially balanced soundstage. At the same time, the midbass driver is capable of enormous levels and powerful bass thanks to its high power handling abilities. When it comes to bass, the Theater 500S is one of the most powerful bookshelf speakers out there.

Top speakers and top support
The Theater 500S have replaced a 15 year old Logitech 2.1 system on my PC. Mainly for listening to music (metal, rock, pop) and gaming, now and then also a film or a series via a streaming service.I don't have to say much about the difference in sound compared to the old Logitech system with its 4cm full-range speaker and the small passive radiator "subwoofer" with its 8cm driver.It's a difference like night and day, and it would be bad if it wasn't. I believe or imagine that I hear things that I didn't perceive before, such as the sliding of the fingers over the bass or guitar strings.Without equalizer settings, the Theater 500S play very clearly and perhaps even a little flat in the bass range. But if you adjust the EQ accordingly, the speakers come out with a lot of bass. Unfortunately, you have to drive at levels that are not quite as neighbour-friendly. Sooner or later, I will add a subwoofer to have a little more bass even at "normal" volumes. I had planned to upgrade the system to 5.1 or possibly even 7.1 for gaming and movies anyway. However, I still have a small space problem and the right AV is missing. Currently, the two speakers are driven by a small 2-channel Class D. I ordered the speakers without listening to them beforehand, after reading about them on the Internet for several weeks and looking at various products. There is somehow no "in between". It seems you have to love them or hate them. Are there speakers that sound better? There certainly are, but I would argue that you have to pay a lot more for them and whether you can hear the difference yourself or whether it only "sounds" better on paper remains to be seen.I am more than satisfied with the price-performance ratio of the Theater 500S, but to be fair I have to say that I bought them in a sale with another free product (Teufel Move Pro), which makes the effective price a little different from the RRP.Finally, a big thumbs up to Teufel Support!
Teufel outdoes itself once again. The Theater 500 S is a listening pleasure in all areas from metal to classical music. Especially in metal, you can hear the scratching of the guitar strings' plectrum. As an old musician and audio freak, I definitely recommend the speakers. Keep up the good work.many thanks......Liebe Grüße der Sven
What a sound! Fantastic!
At first, I hesitated to order them: speakers that have to travel all the way via transport services? I did not trust that. But they were very well packaged. That turned out not to be a problem at all. And then the sound: fantastic! There is nothing more to say. 8-week exchange guarantee? That won't be necessary: you won't get them back!
Super good sound
The Theater 500S have a very pleasant sound. Like other Teufel speakers, they are a little more bass-heavy than competitors' speakers, but don't seem boomy.Visually, the (quite large) "shelf" speakers are a real eye-catcher, both without and with the magnetic grilles.The speakers are heavy and stand very securely, only the small foam rubber feet supplied leave something to be desired.I am very satisfied with my purchase and will definitely recommend the Theater 500S!
That's what I wanted
The speakers arrived within 48 hours of my order. Visually and sonically, they completely fulfil my expectations.

A quiet loudspeaker
I use the speakers on a vintage stereo system (Revox B750 Mk II amplifier) in the study. Having used a Teufel Cinebar 51 on the TV for years, I'm a little disappointed by the lack of liveliness I get from the Theater 500S. Perhaps I should have been warned by the description "English sound, strongest bass for a shelf speaker". However, the strong bass foundation suits background listening at low levels (study !). On the other hand, for the price of the pair, one should not expect any sensations.
Small power pack
I have been able to call the Theater 500 surround set my own for about 4 weeks now and because I unfortunately don't have the space for the floorstanding speakers, the Teufel support team recommended the 500s to me and I was not disappointed! The sound they produce is unbelievable. Only the interaction with the S6000 SW was a bit tricky, but with a bit of patience it works. I can only recommend them for those who don't have the space for floorstanding speakers. A little tip for the sound check, set the subwoofer in the avr menu to no, so the 500s are fired with the full frequency and you can hear what they can do! Thanks again to the support team for their patience with me 🙂😉
Absolutely recommendable
I'm thrilled 😆😆👍👍👍

Very convincing!
The speakers impress with crystal-clear sound across the entire frequency range. Rich bass, clear treble for mainstream pop as well as classical music. I have the speakers connected to a Yamaha A - S 201 and I am very enthusiastic.
