With the proliferation of compact, portable wireless speakers designed to be dotted around the homestead, it’s easy to forget that big speakers have their place too.Now Teufel has developed a 3-way modular speaker system focussed on one thing - the best possible sound for your home.
The Teufel Power HiFi is a veritable speaker tower akin to a concert PA stack and once assigned a designated sonic resting place, it’s unlikely to move from there… like, ever.
Low, medium and high frequencies are each handled by separate speaker modules and the hefty 35kg bass module quite literally forms the sonic and physical foundation upon which everything else is layered. Within the bass cabinet are two 305mm (12-inch) drivers which are angled not only to save space but also to increase the power of the bass unit and these long throw drivers produce a dry and clean bass sound.
The midrange cabinet houses a 200mm driver constructed from pressed steel and iron magnets and is designed to deliver natural midrange frequencies.
The tweeter element of the system is the brains of the outfit and sits atop the lower end muscle. Not only is the unit installed with a 25mm tweeter but it also houses the Class D, 3-channel amplifier section - which can deliver 380W to the speaker modules. There’s also all of the connections and the control panel set into the side, which allows adjustment of input selection, Bluetooth pairing, 3-band equalisation and volume. All of these can also be controlled remotely via the app, which might be an advantage when you are faced with up to 115db of sound.
The tweeter driver sits behind a specially designed arrangement of slats which helps to maximise the distance the sound can travel such that listeners at the extreme far left or right can only hear a minimal difference in the sound. Sitting with its horn, the tweeter unit delivers distortion free sound even at high volumes.
Music can be fed into the Power HiFi via the stereo cinch, digital optical and XLR physical connectors or streamed from a favourite music app by connecting a phone, tablet or laptop to the system using Bluetooth, which is compatible with the aptX protocol enabling CD quality music to be transferred.
One advantage of the XLR connectors is the ability for DJs and musicians to connect professional standard DJ rigs or mixing desks to the Power HiFi for a setup to facilitate a more live, concert based experience. If the venue is a larger loft, stage or club environment, two (or more) Power HiFi stacks can be hooked together using the XLR connectors.
The Teufel Power HiFi modular sound system is now available in black only for £1199.99. It is also available as a stereo set, including a pair of three speaker stacks and a 5-metre-long XLR cable, at a price of £2249.99.
