Fill your room with sound, not audio equipment

The space constraints of many modern homes require innovative sound solutions. Many people want to fill their room with sound but don’t want all the gear that goes with a traditional stereo system. For this reason, we developed the Ultima 40 Active, two beautiful tower speakers with integrated amplification. Germany’s most-purchased stereo speakers now come in a fully active version.

When it comes to sound, the Ultima 40 Active uses all the same high-quality audio components as its passive counterpart. The only difference between the original Ultima 40 and its active counterpart is where the system draws its power. With the Ultima 40 Active, power comes from within.

Power towers

In an Ultima 40 Active stereo pair, all required amplification is tucked away inside the active speaker. An integrated class D amplifier delivers 100 watts per channel – more than enough power for room-filling sound.

One-of-a kind

The Ultima 40 Active was built to work with your lifestyle. To that end, it's equipped for a range of different connection possibilities on the back panel including HDMI with ARC and CEC. This makes it possible to connect the active speaker to a television via a single cable. Enjoy incredible detail and speech intelligibility with sports, the nightly news, TV series and movies. Simply switch sources to enjoy music in hi-fi sound quality.

Music streaming with Bluetooth – check!

The Ultima 40 Active is even equipped for Bluetooth streaming. Play back all the music from your favourite audio apps or the files stored on your phone from the comfort of your sofa. Unlike some Bluetooth speakers that are only built for convenience, the Ultima 40 Active reproduces everything in the best possible sound quality.

Includes everything you’d expect from a complete stereo system

The Ultima 40 Active’s connection panel offers space for additional source devices like game consoles or CD, record and MP3 players via TOSLINK or stereo cinch input. An equalizer allows you to adjust the sound to your personal preferences.


Intelligent LED display

The front of the speaker features LEDs that vary according to colour or pulse rhythm. This allows the user to tell at a glance which source is connected and what status the system currently has.

The following graphic indicates the various functions of the LED display. Two examples are depicted:


  Blue for Bluetooth connectionsbr    Green for playback via line-in

Double bass system and subwoofer options

Two 165 mm fiberglass drivers are responsible for the system’s bass playback. With a 52 litre volume and two bass reflex vents per speaker, the speakers produce extremely powerful, precise bass all the way down to 45 Hz. For those who crave even more deep, rich bass, it’s possible to connect an active subwoofer to the system. The Ultima 40 Active comes with cinch output on the back panel for this purpose.

An easy-to-use system

The Ultima 40 Active comes with a puck remote for effortlessly regulating volume, playback and source. An automatic on function makes the system snap into action as soon as a signal is received.
