Overview of our technologies
This mid-range set of the Concept E series delivers high-level PC sound quality.
The Concept E 300 is a mature two-way system featuring the CE 20 FCR satellite speakers with their 80 mm mid-range drivers and 19 mm tweeters. An arched front piece ensures optimal directional characteristics, while a removable "floating" grille minimises corner reflections.
Volume for up to 25 sqm
A 300 watt power output and a high degree of efficiency (compared to the satellites of the Concept E 100) ensure a maximum volume which can easily fill spaces up to 25 sqm.
All five Concept E 300 satellite speakers are shielded and identically configured to ensure there are no distortions amongst channels. They are perfectly suited for placement on tables or shelves, wall-mounting or placement on speaker stands.
PC sound and beyond
Teufel's Concept E 300 is specifically designed to be connected with a PC. But it also delivers quality sound from other devices including DVD players, MP3 players, iPod docks, Sat receivers, gaming consoles and additional sources. Stereo sources sound great distributed over this 5.1 system thanks to built-in upmix technology!
Easy to use
Right on the front of the Concept E 300's subwoofer you'll find a set of easy-to-use controls which make it simple to adjust the system's volume, adjust its bass mix and put it into standby mode.
Concept E 300 guarantees peak-quality multimedia sound right at your PC.
- Satellite Speaker CE 20 FCR
- Table Stand CE 20 TP
- 5.1 Subwoofer CE 300 SW
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.

Best for movie soundtracks: Teufel Concept E 300.
Only quality components make it into this 5.1 system: five solid satellites and a subwoofer/amplifier the size of a small fridge, all in glossy black veneer (...)
They're impressive as home-cinema or gaming speakers, as they make a big, enjoyable noise and convincing surround sound effects. Console owners wanting surround sound will need the separate Decoderstation 5. It adds up, but you get grown-up home cinema audio potent enough for a big room.
Verdict: Loud and luxurious ( 4 / 5 stars )

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.
