New: Teufel LT 3 – a sound quality and volume level that you simply have to hear to believe

8. April 2009 0 Von ramses77

Lautsprecher TeufelWith the LT 3 loudspeaker set, Teufel is further refining the high art of column speaker design. Whereas the sibling sets LT 2 and LT 4 were the first slim aluminium column speakers to offer pristine hi-fi sound at an affordable price, this super-slim set excels at producing the same high-quality hi-fi with an even sleeker design. These speakers simply couldn’t be any thinner.



One of the innovations of this speaker design is that the two inner drivers are dedicated to the mid-range frequencies, whereas the two outer drivers cover the lower end of the frequency range. The advantage of this 2.5-way design is that there are no major clashes between the individual drivers’ frequency delays that could cause phase shifts and drop-outs by the time they reach the listener’s ear.
The same concept applies to the L 330 C centre speaker. As is to be expected from a Teufel loudspeaker set, this has an identical acoustic design to the four column speakers – same cabinet volume, same drivers, same driver layout. This is the only way to achieve the system’s overall aural homogeneity.



The bottom end of this stylish titanium-black set is taken care of by an L 3300 SW subwoofer. With a large 250 mm driver, a powerful 200 watt amplifier and plenty of cabinet volume despite its compact exterior dimensions, this subwoofer produces full-sounding bass frequencies that will command any room up to 35 m² in size.

As a set, the components of the LT 3 converge to deliver a sound quality and volume level that you simply have to hear to believe. The LT 3’s super-slim looks are more than matched by its heavy-weight sound.

With a needle-thin width of only 10 cm at a height of 1.10 m, the column speakers of the LT 3 set look elegant, sleek and unobtrusive. The hairline-design housing is made from massive aluminium, ensuring a sophisticated exterior as well as optimal acoustic conditions.
A total of four 80 mm conical drivers take care of reproducing the low and mid-range frequencies. Two of these kick in at 120 Hz (which is also where the home theatre receiver’s crossover frequency should be at), whereas the other two provide homogeneous and neutral reproduction of the mid-range frequencies. Taking over at the 3000 Hz point, a 25 mm cloth dome tweeter handles all the high and ultra-high frequencies.
Sturdy mounting of the wispy-looking column is provided by a solid glass base with a 25 cm diameter.

In typical Teufel fashion, the LT 3’s centre speaker features the same speaker drivers and housing design as the column speakers. This is the only way to guarantee that all the front channels are reproduced with identical acoustics. Thanks to its extremely narrow horizontal dimensions (a height of merely 10 cm!), the 45-cm-long L 330 C effortlessly fits above or below any TV screen. Installation is flexible and easy with the integrated wall mounts or the table mount that ships with the speaker.

The bowel-moving sub-bass region is taken care of by a compactly designed active subwoofer. Equipped with a down-firing 250 mm driver, a bass reflex system and a powerful 200 watt amplifier, the L 3300 SW provides a saturated and dynamic bass foundation. Four different crossover frequency settings are available to optimally match the subwoofer to the room and to the four satellite speakers. With the remote control, both the volume level and the crossover frequency can be set from anywhere in the room. The subwoofer comes with four mounting spikes that effectively decouple it from the floor.
