Cubycon 2

Immersive, edge-of-your seat home cinema has never been so... small. With the Cubycon 2, Teufel Audio redefines micro speaker sound. Experience absolutely thrilling sound in your living room with television, movies, music and games with a 5.1 compact speaker set that's easy to integrate and works with just about any A/V receiver.

An understated design, incredible sound

Even for compact speakers, acoustic compromises are a thing of the past. Clear, well-contured tone with sparkling highs, precise voice reproduction, and punchy bass in elegant and compact enclosures that compliment just about any interior is what you can now expect.

With the Cubycon 2, we've blazed new trails in the field of audio technology: Sophisticated coaxial drivers, enclosures made from low-resonating aluminium, three high-performance bass drivers in a specially reinforced subwoofer all conspire to redefine what is possible when it comes to compact speaker sound.

The idea of filling a living room with large speakers keeps many people from enjoying immersive surround sound. That's why we designed the Cubycon satellites in a timeless, inconspicuous, and yet stylish design with a subwoofer that can be either placed upright or laid flat.The Cubycon makes place for you, not the other way around.

Sophisticated features are the hallmark of the Cubyon 2. In addition to a sleek and compact design, this system offers an absolutely incomparible sound. You can look forward to pure power combined with small enclosures that can easily be placed just about anywhere in your listening room - on the wall, a shelf or on stands. A timeless design and typical Teufel quality promise years of enjoyment.

Cubycon 2 Digital HD review of Hifi Vision
"...the smallest details find a fixed place for an unbelievably realistic surround sound environment that delivers an extra helping of cinema enjoyment."
Hifi Vision 39/2013
Do you enjoy full-fledged cinema sound but don’t have space for large audio components? Then Teufels intelligent and compact Central AV | Cubycon 2 is the ideal solution for you […]. With the new Central AV| Cubycon 2 […], Teufel even […] removes A/V receivers from the living rooms.

The DecoderStation 7 is the cornerstone of the new Teufel package […]. Just 27 centimeters wide and 7 centimeters high […] it offer a total of three HDMI inputs, an HDMI-out, three digital and two analogue audio inputs, a headphone interface, an analogue RC/pre-out (for disseminating sound in a wider area) as well as six channels of pre-amplification. […] Along with decoding various high-resolution sound formats, this little wonder box also offers an entire range of handy tools for adjusting the sound such as dynamic compression, a cinema EQ, and an equalizer for the perfect adjustment of individual channels. 

The subwoofer
[…] in this package, Teufel is able to make use of its enornous treasure trove of experience, equipping the included subwoofer US5305/6 with a discretely integrated six channel amplififer that […] can be placed under or behind a sofa thanks to its flat form […].

The loudspeakers
Just 19 centimeters tall but endowed with a matte-metalic shimmery surface of the best quality, the five satellites are visually and technologically identical. Each of the five loudspeakers is equipped with a full-fledged two-way system, […] which unites […] the advantages of a point source for an unbelievable phase response together with the power of a horn loudspeaker with strong levels.

Test
[…] in this case, the 5.1 setup […]  is driven by an Armada amplifier that was specially developed for this purpose. This is an advantage for most owners of active loudspeaker systems of immeasurable value and can be heard in a fresh and airy sound reproduction, […] .Even in turbulent passages, the smallest details find a fixed place for an unbelievably realistic surround sound environment that delivers an extra helping of cinema enjoyment. We really got excited when we detected the precise increase in levels. The Teufel set goes about its business with a degree of temperament, fire, and precision that is simply astonishing and will amaze even the most discerning film fans.

Conclusion
[…] The brand new Central AV | Cubycon 2 is a real home run for home cinema fans who are short on space that will need to orient itself among higher-end fully active compact systems!
Cubycon 2 Digital HD review of hifitest.de
Cubycon 2 Digital HD review of hifitest.de
"[The] A/V preamplification unit [offers] all essential features that one is accustomed to having with modern (and often markedly larger) AV units."
hifitest.de 04/2013
"You enjoy full cinema sound but don’t have room for a technical apparatus that will take up a lot of space? Then Teufel’s intelligent and at the same time compact Central AV | Cubycon 2 is the ideal solution for you.

More than 70 percent of all multichannel loudspeaker systems sold in German speaking areas are for the living room. For this reason, just about every major loudspeaker manufacturer offers compact systems that can be perfectly integrated into any living room without dominating the space visually. With its new Central AV | Cubycon 2, Teufel goes a step further by banishing the usually bulky A/V receiver from the living room.”

"[The] A/V preamplification unit [offers] all essential features that one is accustomed to having with modern (and often markedly larger) AV units. The back side of the device offers proof and has a total of three HDMI inputs, an HDMI out and three digital plus two analogue audio inputs, a headphone jack, an analogue RC/pre-out (for filling an additional zone with sound) as well as six channels of preamplification. The pièce de résistance: If eight loudspeakers (7.1) are connected, the RC/Preout pair can also be used for transmitting signals to the surround back channels. “

"But where is the amplifier? The solution is very simple, because with this bundle, Teufel employs its enormous treasure trove of experience and equips the subwoofer US5305/6 that accompanies the set with a discretely integrated six channel amplifier that provides an abundant 40 watts of power to each of the satellites. Even when it comes to the form of the enclosure, the Berliners rely on the tried and true and employ the just 210 mm wide and 496 mm high MDF enclosure that served so well in the first version of the Cubycon 2 and which, thanks to its flat form, can even be placed under or behind the sofa.”

"Just 19 cm high, the five technically and visually identical satellites are provided with a matte-metallic shimmery surface of the highest quality. Each of the five passive models is equipped with full-fledged two way system. In the low end, there is a midbass driver with a 70 mm diameter with a paper membrane that closely approximates the ideal of a highly stable and at the same time incredibly light oscillation system. Directly above sits a coaxial driver of the same size that was especially developed for use in this satellite. According to the technical ideal, the 19 millimeter tweeter is centered in the surrounding midbass membrane. In addition, the Teufel developers have placed their 19 mm fabric dome tweeter in a funnel-shaped sound guide. This makes sense because this construction unites the advantages of a point source with unbelievable phase fidelity together with a horn loudspeaker for strong levels without accompanying large power exertions.

Conclusion

"Teufel has the most complete multichannel selection in Europe. For the Berliners, however, sitting on their laurels is never an option. In this way, Teufel always manages to offer sensible solutions that enable true movie enjoyment and rich surround sound within one’s own four walls. The brand new Central AV | Cubycon 2 proves itself to be an absolute hit for home cinema fans who have very little space according to which the upper end of fully active compact systems need to immediately orient themselves."

Cubycon 2 Digital HD review of Blu-ray Magazin
"Voices are not too sharply delineated, music unfolds as a pleasant sonic carpet in the room and doesn’t stick to the loudspeakers."
Blu-ray Magazin 04/2013
"What makes the Cubycon 2 so special in our configuration is the A/V controller. This compact metal box allows you to not only regulate the volume (as desired via an included remote control), but to also connect your TV receiver, Blu-ray player, or gaming console and use the device thanks to HDMI recognition. A cable leads to the television or projector with the picture signal. This works with even 3D signals. The A/V controller can also decode all standard audio formats so that you won’t have to spend on an A/V receiver.”

"The small loudspeakers are incredibly easy to install at ear height and those who would like to enjoy an especially balanced sound should not keep the middle speaker on its side, but should rather use it in a standing position. [...] Openings for wall mounts are already pre-installed on the backs of the enclosures, and since the mini loudspeakers don’t play as deeply as full-sized stereo speakers, you won’t have to fear a dull tone. Especially this freedom to install the loudspeakers inconspicuously and yet correctly in the room allows the Cubycon 2 set to sound better than giant loudspeakers that have been lifelessly setup [...]"

"One would never ascribe such a full sound  to this type of compact loudspeaker. Thanks to the roughened surface on the aluminium enclosures, the loudspeakers not only have a premium look, but also a sound that will win your over in every respect. Voices are not too sharply delineated, music unfolds as a pleasant sonic carpet in the room and doesn’t stick to the loudspeakers. The subwoofer, if correctly set up, does not appear as a foreign body, but rather gives the impression - if one closes one’s eyes - of sitting before markedly larger loudspeakers.”

"More cinema atmosphere within one’s own four walls is barely possible!”
SFT 05/2013

"The complete home cinema system from Teufel Audio consists of the CUB 2 satellite set, subwoofer model US 5305/6 SW and the Decoder Station 7 A/V receiver. The various components are connected to the bass unit. [...] Connecting the cables is quickly and easily accomplished and poses no problem for beginners. [...] You can undertake a range of adjustments to the settings via the OSD or Decoder display that features two lines for text: Surround, sound adjustments, level adjustments, source levels, assigning audio channels, etc.”

"During the movie test with Avatar, the mighty bass really blew us away. A 350 watt subwoofer ensures that we could practically feel the air blown by the rotary blades from the airships that powered past us. The spatial impression is excellent, the arrows of the Na’vi whizzed past our ears. The system produced every detail with clarity and precision. The stability of the levels also impressed us. More cinema atmosphere within one’s own four walls is barely possible!”

Cubycon 2 Digital HD review of HDTV
"One would never expect such full-fledged sound from such compact loudspeakers."
HDTV 02/2013
"Can small loudspeakers really sound good? Teufel Audio from Berlin has taken on this question and constructed a complete set that can master sound in rooms up to 25 square meters almost as well as very large home cinema sets.

What makes the Cubycon 2 so special in our arrangement is the A/V controller. Not only can the volume be regulated via this compact metal box (or with the included remote), but also the TV receiver, Blu-ray player or Blu-ray player can be connected per HDMI detection. [...] This even works with 3D signals. In addition, the A/V controller deciphers all standard audio formats so that you won’t need to buy an A/V receiver.”

"The small loudspeakers make placement at ear level easy and those who enjoy especially balanced sound should place the middle speaker upright instead of on its side. [...] It’s this freedom to place the loudspeakers in the room discreetly and correctly that allows the Cubycon 2 set to sound better than a lifelessly set up system comprised of gigantic speakers that, while they can sound better in theory, are actually much too large for one’s own room. Instead, this set also makes use of the surprise effect: One would never expect such full-fledged sound from such compact loudspeakers.“

"Thanks to their roughened surface and aluminium enclosures, the loudspeakers not only look high-end, they also have a sound that will completely win you over. Voices are not given overly sharp contours, music expands into a pleasant carpet of sound in the room and doesn’t stay stuck to the speakers. The subwoofer, if properly set up, doesn’t appear as a foreign body, but lends the impression - if one closes one’s eyes - of being surrounded by much larger loudspeakers.

[...]

Those who enjoy tinkering around with things will enjoy the multifaceted tone settings on the A/V control unit, because highs, mids and deep tones can be adjusted as desired. Especially important for living rooms is optimal dynamic modifications so that film evenings aren’t enjoyed at the neighbors‘ expense – even listening at low volumes is fun with this set.“

Conclusion
"That Teufel Audio offers good loudspeakers for home cinemas is well known by now. That the Berlin speaker makers also construct design-oriented compact systems that are suited for film and music playback is something new. [T]he option to run the back channels wirelessly and the ability to completely do away with the need for an A/V receiver makes the system perfect for living room use.“

"The Teufel sextet goes about its work with so much temperament, fire, and precision that it’s simply amazing."
Heimkino 03-04/2013
"Over 70 percent of all multichannel systems purchased in German speaking countries are for the living room. For this reason, every notable manufacturer has come to offer compact systems that can be perfectly integrated into a home’s most public room without dominating it. With the new Central AV | Cubycon 2, Teufel even goes a step further and removes the usually klunky A/V receiver from the living room.“

"The DecoderStation 7 is the name of the Teufel bundle’s cornerstone [...]. Just 27 centimeters wide and 7 centimeters high, the A/V preamplification unit still manages to contain all essential features that one has come to expect from a – usually much larger - A/V unit. The back side of the device is proof and offers a total of 3 HDMI inputs, an HDMI out, three digital and two analogue audio inputs, a headphone jack, an analogue RC pre-out (for filling an additional zone with sound) as well as a six channel preamplification output. [...] And the inner qualities are equally good: The little box of wonders offers an entire row of nifty tools for making modifications to sound such as dynamic compression, a cinema EQ, and an equalizer for the perfect adjustments to each individual channel.”

"In our last test, we certified that the passive Cuycon 2 version’s compact and yet sleek construction was the perfect requirement for use in small to medium rooms. And this also applies to the expanded version [...]. [The listening test] resulted in an incredible performance. The Central AV bundle we tested showed itself to be powerful, taut, and punchier than the passive version. This came as no surprise because in this case the 5.1 setup was driven by an Armada amplifier developed especially for this use. [This is an] advantage that is of inestimable value to most owners of active loudspeaker systems and which can makes itself felt in a fresh and airy surround sound playback. [...] We really got excited when we ascertained a noticeable level increase. The Teufel sextet goes about its work with so much temperament, fire, and precision that it’s simply amazing. Even demanding film fans will be impressed.”

Conclusion
"To be sure, Teufel  has the most complete multichannel selection in Europe. Resting on their laurels, however, was never an option for the Berliners. [...] The brand new Central A/V | Cubycon 2 proves itself to be an absolute hit for home cinema fans who don’t have much space according to which other higher-end fully active systems will have to orient themselves!”
Cubycon 2 Digital HD review of Area DVD
Cubycon 2 Digital HD review of Area DVD
"The entire ensemble offers no grounds for criticism.”
Area DVD 01/2013
"A complete home cinema multichannel set for 1,799 Euro consisting of a preamplifier that goes by the name DecoderStation7, elegant Cubycon 2 satellites, and a subwoofer. The active subwoofer takes on the roll of amplifier as all relevant amplifiers for the system are integrated into the subwoofer. [...] Teufel promises an especially easy installation. With little effort, the precisely aligned components work together hamoniously. [T]he DecoderStation 7 [offers] 3 HDMI inputs and 1 HDMI output. This is good for such a small device (just 27 cm wide, 17 cm deep, and 6.5 cm tall with a weight of about 2 kg), but little compared to high-end A/V receivers.

The HDMI terminals are of course compatible with the 1.4a standard for 3-D. Decoders for current HD audio formats are also included with Teufel’s DecoderStation 7. Decoders for Dolby Prologic 2 and DTS NEO:6 are also included. A radio tuner for FM, AM, MW and UKW is integrated. [...] The look and feel of the DecoderStation 7 are plus points. The enclosure seems to be solidly constructed and all connections are firmly positioned on the back. The look is pleasant and timeless. In addition to the HDMI connections already mentioned, there are two coaxial digital inputs, an optical digital input, two analogue cinch stereo inputs, two 3.5 mm mini stereo inputs and a 3.5 mm headphone jack. The connection to the amplifier in the subwoofer is made via a 5.1 cinch output. The connections offered are complemented by a RC preout cinch stereo form. Naturally, there are also connections for various radio tuners.”

"Let’s talk about the active subwoofer that goes by the name US5305/6SW. A class D digital amplifier with a total of 350 watts is integrated.  [...] Corresponding cinch inputs on the subwoofer receive the analogue audio signals from the DecoderStation 7. All of the Cubycon satellites that come as part of the set connect to the subwoofer by means of screw terminals. The 3 woofers, each with a 130 mm diameter, built into the front of the subwoofer have an impressive look. The membranes are made from  polypropylene.

The subwoofer operates according to Air Stream bass reflex technology. Many subwoofers use a bass reflex construction, yet at high levels, the bass reflex openings can cause unlovely wind noise. The Air Stream Bass Technology’s precisely calculated bass reflex opening and special sound guidance virtually eliminates this. Even at considerable volumes, there is no wind noise to be heard. The low standy power consumption of just 0.5 watts is commendable in a subwoofer. When in use, the maximum power capacity is 350 watts, with each satellite appropriating 40 watts to itself and the subwoofer channel a mighty 150 watts.

It’s commendable that the satellites have enclosures made from real aluminium. Due to the way they are lacquered, however, the degree to which this material is employed is not at all apparent. Only by touching the speakers does it become apparent that they are are made from cool, high-end aluminium. [...] The premium screw terminals that can also be used with banana plugs met with our full approval. The subwoofer is made from MDF and has rounded corners which increases the overall high-end look. Its slender construction looks good together with the satellites. The inner workings of the bass speaker are very minimal – digital amplification techniques require very little space. The entire ensemble offers no grounds for criticism.”

Conclusion
"The acoustics of Teufel’s Central AV Cubycon 2 set are a true highlight: Spatially well proportioned, tonally authentic and pleasant as well as dynamic. It would be difficult to find another complete system that sounds as good. The level stability should also be absolutely sufficient for most uses. The elegant look and low space requirements also recommend Teufel’s all-in-one offer. [...] All-in-all, the Central A/V Cubycon 2 bundle is a visually very pleasant and an acoustically unusually strong compact system solution [...].“

Help regarding this product
Do I also have a 6.1/7.1 playback for a 5.1 recording?
Usually, all 6.1/7.1 AV Receivers can generate a 6.1/7.1 playback from a 5.1 recording. The procedure is comparable with the Dolby Pro Logic Decoder, which generates a matrix circuit from the stereo signal of a centre channel.

The AV Receivers thus generate a rear centre channel from the rear R/L channels of a 5.1 recording through the matrix circuit. The stronger the rear R/L effects on the DVD, the stronger the signal from the rear centre.
Can I connect the LT 4 directly to a DVD player or PC?
No.

The LT 4 is a partially active system that requires AV receiver operation. It has a built-in amplifier that only supplies bass tones in the subwoofer housing That is why an "AV Receiver", i.e. a combination of radio receiver and multichannel amplifier, is essential for using the LT 4.

The subwoofer is connected from the Line In R input to the AV receiver's sub out jack using a mono RCA cable, while the three front satellites are connected to the three speaker outputs of the AV Receiver using the speaker cable and are supplied with power from there.

Connect signal-emitting source appliances such as DVD player or PC etc. directly to the corresponding input jacks on the AV Receiver.
When would it be worth upgrading my 5.1 system to 6.1/7.1 sound?
Naturally 5.1 channel systems that play back all of the sound tracks contained on the DVDs already offer an excellent home cinema experience.

For the new 6.1 or 7.1 sound formats, a rear centre channel is controlled in addition to these channels. This channel, coded in the stereo effect channels, enables the better positioning of effects and music signals directly behind where you are sitting.

If using two speakers for the rear centre channel, the optimal seating position is not tailored to an individually specified position, i.e. you don't have to be seated in the exact centre.

In the following cases we would recommend upgrading to a 6.1 or 7.1 system:

• Your sitting position is not always dead centre, or you often have several viewers

• You have had a 5.1 system for a very long time and would like an improvement

• Your AV amplifier/receiver is designed as a 6.1 or 7.1 receiver and offers the corresponding connection possibilities

• You can also set up one and/or two rear centres. If you are currently building/renovating your house or flat, we would recommend you lay the cables for the additional rear centre channels in any case.

• Modern BluRay players usually issue a true 7.1 surround sound signal at all digital outputs and are thus optimally suitable - presuming the relevant AV Receiver - as a signal transmitter for a 7.1 channel home cinema system.
How do I upgrade my system to a 6.1 or 7.1 sound format?
The choice of speaker(s) depends on the AV Receiver/amplifier. This has an additional power amplifier for one rear centre (6.1) or its two (7.1). You can easily see this by the wattage (e.g. 6 x 100 watt or 7 x 100 watt). To the existing (side) rear speakers for right/left (5.1 technology), one or two additional rear centres are utilised in addition (6.1 or 7.1 technology).

• My AV amplifier/receiver has six connections/power amplifiers (6.1):

In this case we recommend connecting the same centre at the rear that you also used in the front area.

• My AV amplifier/receiver has 7 connections/power amplifiers (7.1):

If you already use dipoles or direct emitters for your 5.1 system, then you have a choice of either supplementing two more dipoles or two direct emitters. For wall assembly and a short distance from the seating location to the rear wall (less than 1.00 metres), we would recommend dipoles. As soon as you want to set up the speakers on bases or on a shelf, then direct emitters would be the better choice.

Information:
Even if the AV Receiver/amplifier only has the connection and power amplifier performance for one rear centre, it is still possible to connect two instead of just one speaker through series connection.

Exception:
• The AV amplifier/receiver has seven connections/power amplifiers, but I can only set up one rear centre. As the 7.1 AV amplifiers/receiver also offer the option of operating just one of the two outputs (usually can be set in the speaker set-up!), you can also only connect just one rear centre.

Here we recommend connecting the same centre to the rear that you also used in the front area. For short distances to the listening location (less than 1.00 metres), a dipole would be the better choice - especially if you are also using dipoles at the sides.
Is it a problem if the speakers are at different distances to where you are sitting?
Since the distance and volume of every individual speaker can be adjusted for the digital home cinema receivers, asymmetrical set-ups can be easily compensated. 
How do I equalise my home cinema system with the help of a sound level meter?
Take the level meter with you to the listening position and point the measuring device directly towards the front centre speaker. Now start the sound generator of the receiver (or of the sound card or DVD player) and equalise all speakers in succession to the same level.

The position and alignment of the measuring device should not be changed during this procedure. For a Teufel sound level meter, proceed as detailed in the following:

1. Remove the protective tab from the battery.

2. Set the weighting to "A" - only the "A" position considers the full frequency range during measuring!

3. Set the response to Slow.

4. Set the Range to 70.

5. Start the test noise from your AV device.

6. Change the volume for every individual channel at the AV device so that the level meter shows 75 dB (meaning between +4 and +6).

7. Done!
What is the difference between the 5.1 and 7.1 configuration?
Compared with the 5.1 set, the 7.1 set has two extra speakers for the back rear centre channel.

The 5.1 channel set plays back all sound tracks on DVDs/Blu-rays and creates an excellent home cinema experience.

With the 7.1 sound format, a rear centre channel is also generated in addition to these channels and distributed to two further speakers (the "rear centre"). This channel, which is encoded in the stereo effects channels, allows better location of effects and music signals directly behind the sitting position.

If you use two speakers for the rear centre channel (i.e. installed 7.1 set), the optimum sitting position is not restricted to one specific place, so you don't have to be sitting exactly in the middle and several listeners can enjoy the best sound.
Where is the optimal place for the centre of my Lautsprecher Teufel Surround System in a 5.1/6.1/7.1 configuration?
Because the centre plays back spoken dialogue, this speaker must be positioned as centrally as possible under or over the TV/monitor or the screen.

If the centre is placed outside the area of 40 centimetres to 1.20 meter height, it should be slightly inclined or angled towards the listener.


Can I order the Teufel speakers in different colours than those offered?
To realise the very reasonable sales prices usual for Teufel, it is not possible to offer the speakers in a multitude of housing designs.

This circumstance would drive up the production and storage costs, which would result in a significantly more expensive sales price.

A paint shop in your vicinity will surely be able to repaint the speaker housing to your preferred colour without loss of warranty - after expiry of the eight-week right of return.
Which cables do I need to connect a Teufel speaker set to the AV Receiver?
A home cinema system needs speaker cables to connect the satellite speakers to the receivers, and an NF mono RCA cable to connect the active subwoofer to the sub out socket of the AV Receiver.
My subwoofer is humming. What can I do?
This hum can be caused by the connected devices or disruptions in your electricity current. Please do a test to see which it is.

1. Remove the RCA cable from the input on the subwoofer. If the hum is no longer heard, go to point B. Otherwise, follow point A.

A. Attach the net cable of the subwoofer to another electricity outlet (i.e. Kitchen/Bathroom/Bedroom). If the subwoofer still hums, get in contact with our Support team.

Should the hum no longer be there, the disruption was a problem in your power supply, which can, for instance, be caused by dimmers or chargers. To find out where the disruption is, unplug all your devices and work back from there. As soon as the hum is heard, you now know your source of the disruption.

B. In your case, the "ground hum" is responsible for the disruption. Please proceed as follows to discover your source.

  • Disconnect the cable or satellite port from the TV Receiver and check if the hum disappears or not. If it does, you can use a sheath current filter for the cable outlet to prevent this. For example, the sheath current filter AC 9022 ED. If you have a satellite connection, connect the Satellite Receiver to the optical cable playback source - Teufel Optical Digital Cable

  • If this reason can be excluded, separate all devices from the AV Receiver one at a time until the hum stops. The last connected device is then your hum source and should be separated from the others using a galvanic separation filter (found in a retail shop)

  • If this doesn't work, get in contact with us once again so that we can give an individual, helpful response.
How do I connect my fully active Teufel system to a multi-channel sound card?
If your sound card is set up for 5.1 operation, you will usually find three 3.5 mm mini jack outputs. Connect the card using three Y adapter cables in the 3.5 mm mini jacks to 2 x cinch formats to the inputs for the front R/L, rear R/L, centre and subwoofer at the rear of the fully active Teufel set.

The colours of the outputs and the types of signals transferred at each output differ from sound card to sound card. Please refer to the sound card manual. The Teufel system then reproduces the surround signal decoded by the sound card.

The five satellites are connected directly to the speaker clamps on the subwoofer, using the speaker cable supplied. Strip and split the ends of the speaker cable to do so. Speakers and amplifiers have corresponding [+] and [−] clamps. The [+] cable of the speaker cable is marked with a stripe. It is important to observe the correct polarity when connecting the speakers: the plus pole of the speaker connects to the plus pole of the amplifier and the minus pole of the speaker to the minus pole of the amplifier.
The subwoofer switches itself off after a long period at high volume (the satellites keep playing).
It is possible that you have operated the system outside of its performance boundaries.

The system is an extremely good-value, fully active system that performs very well for its class. It has been designed for home cinema use in smaller rooms and for PC use. It should be taken into consideration, especially in fully active operation with sound cards and DVD players, that a PC speaker system cannot fill an entire room with sound, only the area where the user is sitting. This system has not been designed for and is not suitable for long-term use at very high volumes.

If the system is operated when the volume is too high, the safety cut-off in the power pack may be activated. This cut-off switch is required for safety reasons and prevents the power pack, the power amplifiers and the speakers from sustaining damage. If this cut-off switch is activated, it means that the system has reached its performance boundaries.

Our problem-solving tips:

• Position the system speakers closer to where you are sitting. Then much less power will be needed for loud sound reproduction.

• Use an AV Receiver that will supply the satellites with power. This takes the pressure off the power pack and the power amplifiers of the system.

However, a fault cannot be ruled out if the system switches off at low volumes in rooms of 20 m² or smaller.

We are unable to authorise additional active cooling of the power amplifier. It no longer corresponds to the specifications for the operation of our products. Failures caused by additional active cooling can clearly be attributed to negligent action by the user. As operation with active cooling has a direct effect on the function of the product, it voids all warranty claims.
One satellite speaker generates no sound or distorted sound, but the other one works fine. Why?
In order to more precisely identify the problem, please try swapping the channel positions of the two satellite speakers. It should be possible to find out if the problem is a defective satellite speaker, or if it has to do with the electronics of the amplifier. If the satellite speaker functions after the swap, then the electronics of the amplifier may be defective. If not, the satellite speaker is likely broken.
There is no sound coming from either the speakers or the subwoofer
Please check that the operating lights of your Teufel device are on. If not, please change the fuse: it could be that the mains fuse on the subwoofer may have blown due to overvoltage in the mains. The fuse box is located underneath the plug. Use a small screwdriver to lever it out, replace the two jammed fuses and insert the fuse holder back into the fuse box. Now the subwoofer should be ready for use again.
Basic function test.
You can check the function of the subwoofer and the satellites by only connecting the (stereo) signal from an external source that is guaranteed to be good quality, such as a music CD played on a (portable) CD player, using a RCA cable (and possibly a Y adapter) with the front input L/R on the subwoofer.

The other four inputs on the subwoofer do not need to be occupied (= RCA cable disconnected). With this connection plug arrangement of front In L/R, the Concept E Magnum Power Edition amplifier activates all satellites and the subwoofer through internal distribution. If the subwoofer and all five satellites now play correctly via a directly connected CD player, the Concept E Magnum Power Edition was not receiving the correct signal before. Either the cinch cable is defective (try exchanging it) or the output of your source appliance is not producing the correct signal.

If you continue to experience unwanted noise/individual malfunctions, there is possibly a defect in the Teufel system.
How do I connect the five satellites to the Motiv 5?
The five satellites are connected directly to the speaker clamps on the subwoofer, using a normal speaker cable. We recommend using the speaker cable from the MO 500 W accessories package. Separate the ends of the speaker cable and remove the insulation.

Speakers and amplifiers have corresponding [+] and [−] clamps. The [+] cable of the speaker cable is marked with a stripe. It is important that the polarity of the speakers is identical when they are connected: the positive pole of the speaker connects to the positive pole of the amplifier and the negative pole of the speaker to the negative pole of the amplifier. Connecting the cables with the incorrect phases can result in thin sound, weak bass and reduced stereo characteristics. For multichannel surround systems, it is also important that all speakers are connected with the correct polarity in order to ensure the right three-dimensional atmosphere and the correct alignment of the sound.
How do I connect my fully active Teufel system to a notebook?
You can use our fully active sets to create perfect PC sound, not only on a desktop computer but also with a notebook.

If your notebook only has a single 3.5 mm stereo jack output, connect it using a 3.5 mm mini jack cinch Y adapter cable to the front input "In R/L" on the subwoofer.
Thanks to the integrated "Upmix" switch in the Concept E 2/ E Magnum / Motiv 5 / Concept F, the 4 satellite speakers play back a stereo signal and the centre speaker and the subwoofer each play back a mono signal. This admittedly does not sound as perfect as Dolby Digital, but does sound better than pure stereo playback.

You will still have the chance later on to operate your speaker using a convertible external 5.1-capable sound card, in order to experience the full pleasure of Dolby Digital and DTS.

Different companies, such as Creative, Terratec, Toshiba, ESI/Audiotrak and M-Audio, offer solutions for connection to the PCMCIA port or via USB or FireWire.
What is a ground hum?
The hum (50 Hz) comes from the 220 volt supply network and is caused by current power flows through the protective conductor. These so-called "ground hums" is caused when you connect two devices that are already grounded on the protective conductor (subwoofer) or the antennae cable (AV Receiver) to the subwoofer cable.

Solution:
Separate the direct connection by a grounding filter for the antennae cable that is created for it - for instance, the Teufel modell sheath current filter AC 9022 ED. Alternatively, you can use a galvanic separation filter that is looped into the connection between the subwoofer and AV Receiver.

The hum disappears if the antennae cable is separated from the Receiver/Tuner/TV. First try the grounding filter, otherwise the galvanic separation filter.
Where is the optimal place for the subwoofer of my Lautsprecher Teufel Surround System in a 5.1/6.1/7.1 configuration?
The location of a subwoofer with a recommended cut-off frequency of under/equal to 120 Hz can be freely selected and does not affect the other speakers.

Placement within the straight line between both front satellites is ideal - but not precisely in the corner of the room because certain frequency components could be unpleasantly excessive when played back.
How do I determine the right phase setting of the subwoofer?
By setting the phase, you can affect the point at which the membrane of the subwoofer bass speaker moves to the front. This setting makes it possible to optimally adjust the subwoofer to the satellites.

The membranes of the satellites should move to the front at the same time as the membrane of the subwoofer bass speaker, because all speakers of the system must vibrate in phase for optimal playback. This means that (provided the connection has the correct polarity) all drivers must move in one direction when the three front speakers receive a pulse (towards the outside or towards the inside).

If the subwoofer is in line with the front speakers, its bass speaker should have the same direction of movement (phase) - the controller on the woofer is set to "0". If the subwoofer is not between the front speakers, but is to the side of or even behind the listening location, its phase length will not match that of the front speakers. That is why the phase of the subwoofer must be changed in such cases.

So much for the theory. In practice, this means: Listen to a loud piece of music with heavy basses and ask a second person to change the phase during playback. The correct setting of the phase switch depends on where the subwoofer is positioned in the room. The position where the bass playback (above all the upper bass range) sounds the fullest is the correct position. Have fun trying it out!
What's the deal with the so-called bass traps or bass absorbers?
These are usually cubic wood housings (same MDF material as the speakers) with a bass reflex opening that have no membranes and are tuned to a certain frequency (e.g. 40 Hz as for a subwoofer). The frequency to be co-ordinated can be changed by the length and diametre of the bass reflex channel. If, for example, a room has a room resonance frequency of 28.3 Hz and this frequency is also played back in addition by a speaker/subwoofer, the room will begin to resonate at this frequency. This particular frequency is played back amplified.

This can be imagined as droning or booming, which occurs during heavy bass movie scenes such as explosions or certain types of music (Jazz, pizzicato bass). The bass absorber is then tuned exactly to this frequency so that only the speakers/subwoofer play back this frequency. The resonance frequency from the room, which would amplify this frequency, is swallowed by the bass absorber.

If you would like to damp more than one frequency (a room usually has three different frequencies: ceilings and floors, front and back and left and right, and its multiple), you will have to set up three absorbers accordingly.
How is the wattage of a subwoofer with respect to the sine wave and pulse/music performance?
Mono subwoofer:

The wattage (e.g. "360 W") printed on the rear of the subwoofer near the mains plug designates the ability of the power amplifier "to pull" a maximum power rating in the specified range at the moment of switching on (those 360 watt stated as an example).

Consequently, the wattage must correspond to at least the sine wave output of the amplifier, as this sine wave output must be permanently available which the power pack must provide as well.

The pulse/music performance of the amplifier, on the other hand, can exceed the wattage, because the short pulses are buffered additionally by the capacitors in the power pack and are not achieved solely through the performance of the power pack.

Multi-channel subwoofer:

The wattage for a multi-channel subwoofer can also be below the sine wave output, as the specified sine wave output is not requested from every channel at the same time.

For a 5 x 100 watt sinus power amplifier, for example, each of the five channels is able to implement 100 watt sine. However, not all five channels at the same time! This is also unnecessary, as the same signal is never transmitted across all five channels at the same time, thus requesting the same high sine wave output per channel.

That is why the wattage may be, e.g. 300 watt, even if the sine wave output exhibits 5 x 100 watt (= 500 watt).
Which subwoofer cables does Teufel recommend?
Dans la mesure où dans un ensemble home cinéma les caissons de basses actifs sont connectés à la sortie Out du caisson de basses du récepteur AV, un câble supplémentaire pour la connexion des enceintes satellites est nécessaire. Pour les caissons de basses actifs nous proposons deux versions de câble mono RCA NF allant de 2,5m jusque 5m. Du reste, un adaptateur Y est également disponible dans nos accessoires. Le modèle „ 2 x mâles 1 x femelle“ permet un usage complet des entrées Line-In RCA droit et gauche au caisson de basses. Ainsi, la puissance du caisson de basses s’en voit augmentée. Le modèle „1 x mâle 2 x femelles“ permet la connexion de deux caissons de basses. Une sortie caisson de basses Pre-Out du récepteur se trouve en sommes doublée.
What is room resonance frequency?
Room resonance frequency (other terms: room modes, standing waves, resonance frequency) is the frequency at which the vibrations of a voice, a musical instrument or a signal played back over the hi-fi/home cinema system is amplified unnaturally, because the vibrations build up between the walls as well as the floor and ceiling.

It is calculated of the sound velocity divided by 2 and divided by the room length [ 340 m/s: 2 : 6 m = 28.3 Hz (=1/s) ] or, more simply: 170 divided by the room dimension (length, width or height). The greatest distance between two parallel walls is taken as first standard value. For a room of 4 x 6 metres, this would be 6 metres. Strictly speaking, you would have to calculate the room resonance frequency for further parallel walls (for the 4 metres and for the ceiling height).

Overlaying resonances are also possible if the room dimensions are very close to each other. (2.8 metres high, 3 metres wide and 5.6 metres long). The resonance at 2.8 metres is repeated as multiple (times 2) at 5.6 metres length, the resonance of the 3 metres width is close to the resonance of 2.8 metres. It would resonate strongly here at 30 Hz, 56 Hz, 60 Hz and 120/112 Hz.

Phenomena of resonance frequencies:

• For example, a man with a deep voice speaks in a very small room (2 by 2 metres, 85 Hz). The voice appears to have more emphasis than in another room or out of doors. As soon as a woman speaks, the voice will sound just the same as in another room.

• The voice of a woman or that of a small child will cause glass to shatter. The voice strikes exactly the tone that corresponds to the resonant frequency of the glass. The glass resonates so strongly that it shatters (refer to the movie "The Tin Drum").

• A group of soldiers march across a bridge in cadence. The equal movement causes the bridge to vibrate so much that it collapses. That is why no one marches across bridges in cadence.
