Safety notes
Caution icons
You will find the following caution icons used in these
instructions:
Danger High risk!
Failure to observe the warning may result in
severe personal injury or death.
Attention Moderate risk!
Failure to observe the warning may result in
property damage.
Minor risk!
Points which should be observed when handling the unit.
Safety notes
Danger Danger to children!
Children can become trapped in the packing
film when playing and suffocate.
• Do not allow children to play with the unit or the packing film. Danger of suffocation.
• Ensure that children do not remove small parts from
the unit or take them off of the unit (e.g. control knobs
or plug adapters). They could swallow the parts and
choke. Never allow children to use electrical devices
without supervision.
Danger Danger of injury/damage!
Selecting an incorrect location may result in
damages.
• Never use the unit unmounted in vehicles, in unstable
locations, on wobbly tripods or furniture, on underdimensioned brackets etc. The speakers could tip or fall
down and cause injury to persons or be damaged.
• Arrange the speakers so that they cannot be knocked
over accidentally and make sure that the cables do not
pose a trip hazard.
• Ensure that any wall mounting is performed in a professional manner.
• Only use suitable wall brackets for mounting. Check
the carrying capacity of the walls.
• Do not use the speakers if the housing or the connector
cables are defective or if they exhibit any other visible
damages.
• Only use the speakers indoors.
• Do not use the speakers in moist areass and protect it
from water drops and splashes. Ensure that no vases
or other vessels filled with liquid are placed on or
near the speakers to prevent the housing from being
penetrated by liquid.
• Do not place the speakers near sources of heat (e.g.
heaters, ovens, other heat generating equipment such
as amplifiers etc.).
Danger Danger to hearing!
Loud noise may lead to hearing loss.
Particularly if a subwoofer on full volume in
»Standby/Auto On« mode is switched on by a bass beat,
sudden very high sound pressure may result. This may
cause physical and psychological damage. Children and
pets are at particular risk.
• Set your signal source unit volume control to a low
setting.
• When the volume is set high, always keep a certain
distance from the unit and never place your ear directly
on the speaker.
• To avoid damage to health, avoid extended listening at
high volume.

Unpacking and setup
Open the boxes carefully, take out the half shell EPE
packaging foam and carefully lift the speaker out of the
box without touching the diaphragms.
Connector cable
Due to differing customer requirements, the
Ultima 40 series is shipped without connector cables. You can find suitable cables in our webshop
(www.teufelaudio.com) in the “Accessories” area.
The speakers should be situated to the left and right of
the listener and if possible, form an equilateral triangle
with the listener – the so-called stereo triangle (distance
from the listener = distance between the speakers). The
speakers should project sound straight into the room or
be arranged slightly towards the listener.
Check to be sure
• Check that all items have been delivered and that nothing is damaged.
• If the delivery is incomplete or you find damage sustained in transit, do not operate the speakers, instead
contact our service department (see page 3).
Location tips
Right speaker
Left speaker
Stereo triangle
• Select a stable, level base.
• Make sure that the environment is clean and free from
dust.
• Avoid placing the unit close to sources of heat or in
direct sunlight.
• Arrange the connector cables so that they do not pose
a trip hazard.
• Do not place any heavy objects on the cables or the
speakers.
The following information concerns an “ideal listening
room”, where the listener sits in a central position at
an adequate distance in front of the speakers (see the
adjacent graphic) and there are no objects between the
listener and speakers (tables or the like). Unfortunately,
available space, furnishing or other circumstances may
not always allow for an optimum arrangement.
Modern amplifiers offer a variety of possibilities for
electronically compensating losses associated with the
arrangement. The following generally applies: You can
always experiment on what works best in your listening
room in terms of sound and appearance based on our
recommendations. Let your ears (and eyes) be the judge!
Removing the protective grids
You can remove the protective grids from the speakers by
carefully reaching behind the protective grid and slowly
pulling it off to the front.
When reattaching the grids, ensure that the installation
pins slide into the corresponding holes on the speaker.

Connecting
Connection variations
A connector terminal with four terminal clips is located on the back of
each speaker. You can connect the
speaker cables using pin plugs or
directly. We only describe the direct
connection here. The terminals are
each marked red (+) and black (-).
In addition to a standard connection, where every speaker column
is connected to the amplifier with a
cable, you can also choose the variants “Bi-Wiring” or
“Bi-Amping”.
Standard connection
With this connection, the Ultima 40 speakers are connected like conventional speakers with one 2-strands
speaker cable each. The contact bridges between the
connector terminals may not be removed in the process;
you can connect the cables accordingly to the top or bottom terminals.
Bi-Wiring
For this, the high and midrange speakers are connected
with one speaker cable and the two low range speakers
are connected with a second speaker cable.
Bi-Amping
For this, the high/midrange and low range speakers have
their own amplifiers.
You only have to remove the contact bridges when using Bi-Wiring
or Bi-Amping: Turn the connector terminals counterclockwise
until loose and then pull out the
contact bridges. The top terminals lead to the high range and
midrange speakers, the bottom
terminals lead to the low range
speakers.

Connecting the cables
Danger Danger of injury/damage!
Arrange the cables so that they do not pose a
trip hazard.
1. Turn off your amplifier.
2. Lay the speaker cable from your amplifier to each
of the speakers. This cable should be a high-quality
double-wire speaker cable with marked strands. The
cross-section should amount to at least 1,5 mm2.
Make sure the polarity is correct!
Connect the like coloured terminals of your
speakers and amplifier with one another. Otherwise the sound quality will suffer. The individual strips
of the speaker cables are marked with different colours or
shapes to facilitate this.
3. Split the singlewire down to
approx. 30
mm on both
ends and strip
off approx. 10
mm of insulation on each of
them. Twist the
stripped ends of the single-wire together so that no
strand is protruding.
4. Turn the connector terminals
counterclockwise until loose.
Run the stripped ends of the single-wire into the holes that are
now visible. Close the terminals
by turning them clockwise. The
cable has now been clamped
in place.
5. Connect the other end of the
speaker cables to your amplifier. The operating instructions
of the appliance should contain
notes on this.

Care and cleaning
The veneered surfaces of our speakers have a protective
surface coat, which eliminates the need for wood polish.
• You can best remove dust or small amounts of dirt with
a dry, smooth leather cloth.
• Rub off stubborn dirt with a damp cloth. Make sure
that no liquid penetrates the speakers.
• Then immediately wipe the surfaces dry using a soft
cloth and without applying pressure.
Attention Risk of damage!
Using the wrong cleaning materials may damage the delicate surface of the case.
• If possible use only plain, lukewarm water with no
cleaning products. In case of stubborn marks, a mild
soap solution may be used.
• In no circumstances should caustic cleaning products,
white spirit, thinners, petrol or similar be used for
cleaning.
Protecting the environment
Disposing of the unit
Used units must not be disposed of with household waste.
If the unit is no longer operational, every
consumer is required by law to dispose of
used devices separate from household waste,
e.g. at a collection point run by the communal author-
ity borough. In this way, used devices can be recycled
and waste materials disposed of in an environmentally
friendly manner.
For this reason, electrical equipment is labelled with the
displayed symbol.
