The 5.1 amplifier distributes the 500 watts maximum performance to six channels. And 225 watts of those are allocated just for the bass in the 63 litre reflex casing. This makes sense, because an imposing 300 mm chassis lays waiting for an ample power supply to allow it to mercilessly play out its advantages: 32 Hz lower limit frequency, 500 watts maximum level – while remaining clean, precise and free from noise.
Three illuminated regulators on the front enable direct control of the total volume, bass proportion and the On/Standby operating mode. The power consumption in the standby mode here remains less than 1 watts.
The Concept E 400 SW is only available as part of a Concept E 400 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.

Grade: GOOD (1,8)
Sound Dolby Pro Logic II: CD "Dream Dance Vol. 50, CD 1": what a step ahead – acoustically this combination of the Decoderstation 5 and Concept E 300 in comparison to the older Decoderstation 3 and the Concept E Magnum Digital are hardly in the same ball park. The January, 2008 tested products were still cheaper, but the in-total 448 euro for the brand-new Teufel combination is an excellent investment. With Paffendorfs "Self Control" the attractive subwoofer really impresses. All power amplifiers are located in its housing, which gives pleasure during performance and a surprising depth. With increased volumes the Concept E 400 remains sovereign and provides a precise, room-filling sound with excellent differences between vocal and instrumental elements. The subwoofer not only delivers tremendous sound pressure – as shows with "I kissed a Girl" or "Real Booty Babes" – but is quick on the uptake and immediately implements bass impulses. In each individual you get amazing results in an astoundingly constructive way. The bass is hefty and quick, the highs and midranges are homogeneous and played forward without-error.
Well thought-out, optically gorgeous, strong sound – this price-conscious combination of the Concept E 300 and the Decoderstation 5 is for beginners or old hands that need an inexpensive second solution…for example, playing PC multimedia files…a perfect choice. Volume level strength is excellent for such a system. The connection possibilities fort he Decoderstation 5 are also something to praise as well as its balanced and clean worksmanship. This is our summary: you'll hardly find more sound, quality and equipment for 450 euro anywhere else around.
• Astoundingly dynamic sound
• Excellently harmonic sound picture
• For the performance area excellent volume control
• Subwoofer with nimble speed and a good volume
• Decoderstation 5 with impeccable ports
• Good finish to all components

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.
The higher the level, the sooner the subwoofer restarts.
Bass should be set to 1/4 (at the "9:00 position" on the dial).
If you want to hook up multiple source devices to your Teufel set, we recommend that you purchase a Decoderstation 5.
If the interference continues, try using a shorter high-end shielded and insulated RCA connector cable.
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.
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.
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.
Tauschen Sie die neben dem Netzschalter befindliche Sicherung aus. Falls die Power-Diode danach nicht leuchtet, wenden Sie sich bitte an unseren Service. Falls die Power-Diode danach leuchtet, aber kein Ton zu vernehmen ist, verfahren Sie bitte wie unter Punkt 2. beschrieben.
2. Falls die Power-Diode leuchtet:
Drehen Sie den Pegelregler Level am Subwoofer auf »Minimum«, ziehen das Subwoofer-Cinchkabel am Verstärker ab, drehen Level vorsichtig hoch und berühren den Cinch-Heißleiter des Cinch-Kabels (innen) mit dem Finger. Ist nun ein Brummen oder Knacken zu hören, liegt der Fehler beim Receiver oder seinen Einstellungen. Bleibt der Subwoofer stumm, wenden Sie sich bitte an unseren Service.
Wenn also das Signal im Stereobetrieb z.B. nur auf zwei Satelliten spielt, ist die korrekte Zuweisung in der Software von Soundkarte/DVD-Player entweder nicht möglich oder nicht korrekt eingestellt.
Das Concept E Magnum ist „schuldlos“ - es gibt nur das wieder, was es an Signalen bekommt (und eben das nicht, was es nicht bekommt).
Also muss die korrekte Zuweisung in der Software von Soundkarte/DVD-Player erfolgen.
Bitte kontakten Sie den Support des Soundkarten/DVD-Player-Herstellers.
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.
They can otherwise be mounted to the M 50 P speaker stands, which are available for purchase as an accessory.
