Overview of our technologies
This set offers three advantages over the beginner model Concept E 100 Control: more sound, more performance, and more bass! And that in larger rooms too, up to 25 sqm can be assured of amazingly clean sound.
Console plus speakers plus cable
The basic idea of this device combination is the same: the ControlStation 2, the controller device, offers exceptional connection capabilities, the active sub with its 5.1 amplifier and five compact satellite speakers work to provide fascinating sound.
The ControlStation 2 connects the PC and allows connections for further playback devices (MP3 player, iPod, internet radio, DJ Mixer, etc). With the push of a button you switch between PC, Audio 1, Audio 2, and turn the mike and headphones on and off.
Full comfort with remote
It doesn't matter where you're at with this great set - the included remote control allows for comfortable use wherever you sit. You can also work the volume, source device change and mute from the front of the ControlStation 2.
This set amazes with its subwoofer return (up to 36 Hz -3 dB) and the two way satellites work in tandem to provide the same, full featured simultaneous sound in both the high and middle ranges.
This device combination provides you fantastic sound wherever you need it: whether the desk, in the kid's room, your front room or the mancave. The Concept E 300 Control is the perfect modern home cinema and music sound powerhouse for your PC.
Surround for all sources
An internal matrix works to transfer stereo sound into the five speakers and the sub. This sounds much better than a conventional two-channel sound on your PC. You can also shut this off using the "pure" function. Real Dolby Digital/dts 5.1 sound from the sound card is also truly brought over.
ControlStation 2 is a preamplifier capable of expanding any 5.1 PC loudspeaker set into a comprehensive sound system. The device is ideal for anyone whose primary audio source is a computer.
For more connectivity and surround sound at your PCWithout a ControlStatoin 2, you'll have to connect your 5.1 PC speaker set directly to your computer's sound card. That means you won't have extra inputs for an MP3 player, an iPod, smartphone, DJ mixer, etc. You're also missing out on easy access to headphone and microphone jacks. The ControlStation 2 provides all of this and more.
This handy little preamplifier lets you link external audio sources to your PC speakers. Connect up to two analogue audio sources to the ControlStation 2 and switch between sources: PC, Audio 1 and Audio 2 without having to plug in and unplug your source devices.
ControlStation 2 puts an end to crawling under the computer table to connect a microphone, headphone or headset. Connect them directly to the ControlStation 2 instead. It's ideal for gaming and making VOIP calls.
An internal matrix processes inbound stereo signals in order to distribute them across five speakers and a subwoofer. The result is a significant boost in sound quality over conventional two-channel PC speaker sound. This feature can also be turned off using the "Pure" mode offered by ControlStation 2.
The ControlStation 2 includes an infrared remote control that gives you easy wireless access to all essential functions, even when you aren't sitting directly in front of your computer.
ControlStation 2 is a tool perfectly adapted to the needs of a PC audio listener. Combine it with Teufel PC speakers and you'll have the perfect sound system for your computer.
As part of a bundle setControlStation 2 is also with compatible Teufel PC loudspeaker systems. Buy it preconfigured as a controller for the Concept E 100 or Concept E 200 and profit from a system that includes all the necessary cables and a significant discount!

The technical make-up of both models is identical, but the CE 300 SW has been meticulously optimised to enhance the interplay with the high-quality two-way satellites of the Concept E 300 set.
But that's not all: with a maximum performance of 300 watts on six channels, the Concept E 300 SW is numbered among the absolute top class of multimedia subwoofers!
The level control of the three switches on the front lets you finely control the most important aspects (volume, bass and power). The rear 5.1 cinch connections are suitable for connection to surround sound cards or other stereo sources.
The side-mounted bass speaker measures an imposing 250 mm, which plays a not inconsiderable part in creating the full-bodied sonorous sound of this master of bass. The bass reflex calibration together with the generously dimensioned casing contributes to the successful overall impression. No wonder – the lower limit frequency is a fabulous 36 Hz (at -3 dB). Many other home cinema woofers will pale in comparison!
The Concept E 300 SW is only available as part of a Concept E 300 set.

Despite being small in size, the micro speaker plays back all medium and high frequencies comprehensively, clearly and powerfully. The 9 x 12.5 cm casing behind a removable, floating mounted grid has a full-grown two-way system with 80 mm mid-tone speaker and 19 mm tweeter; an extremely finely tuned frequency switch ensures the harmonic interplay of these components. The curved front provides better sound radiation than conventional constructions.
An exceptionally linear frequency response is achieved in conjunction with the active filtering of the subwoofer’s multi-channel amplifier, marking new standards in the field of multimedia speakers.
The CE 20 FCR includes a matching table stand, but it can also be attached to the wall and swivelled horizontally/vertically using the optional Shortlock wall bracket. Attaching the speaker to the separately available M 50 P stand allows it to be placed freely in the room.

In terms of size, the sub is truly massive and roughly the size of a small full-ATX case but this in turn does allow for big sound. This large box houses the amplification for the satellites too allowing the satellites to be, comparatively, very small.
The Teufel Concept E300 5.1 setup has certainly impressed with a very high quality, rich sound produced by the large sub and five small, yet powerful, satellites. Surround sound is something that most users with a high definition TV, games console or PC would be thinking of and this speaker setup would be a great investment.
It not only has the performance but also the looks with the sleek black and silver aesthetics fitting in nicely with most PCs/TVs or input sources.
Pumping the system up to volume is brilliant with no degradation is sound quality, clarity or realism. Instead, it further immerses your gaming, movie or music experience transporting you to a whole new dimension.
Overall, if you’re looking for a high quality, well-built, stylish 5.1 surround speaker set you need look no further than the Teufel Concept E300 set.

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.
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.
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.
• 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.
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.
• 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.
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).
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.
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.
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.
If you can still hear the crackling, please check which satellites are affected by swapping them around and to find out whether the satellite or the subwoofer electronics are generating the excessive crackling. If the "fault" moves with the satellites, the satellite is affected. The subwoofer amplifier electronics may be responsible if you can still hear the crackling.
We recommend you increase the volume of the source device connected to the Concept E and, at the same time, reduce the volume of the Concept E. After this, the system should work perfectly.
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.
You can check the basic noise level by connecting a signal, via a cinch cable, from an external source that is guaranteed to be good quality – such as a music CD e.g. on a portable CD player – to the Aux L/R input on the subwoofer. If all of the satellites are now playing noise-free, it is because they weren't receiving the right signal before. Either the cinch cable is defective (try swapping them around) or the output of your source appliance is not producing an adequate signal.
However, if you continue to hear increased noise on this channel there is possibly a fault in the Concept F. Please check which satellites are affected by changing the satellites around and to find out whether the satellite or the subwoofer electronics are producing excessive noise. If the fault "moves" with the satellite the satellite is the problem. On the other hand, if the hissing remains on the same channel, the subwoofer amplifier electronics are the cause.
If the interference continues, try using a shorter high-end shielded and insulated RCA connector cable.
They can otherwise be mounted to the M 50 P speaker stands, which are available for purchase as an accessory.
