The subwoofer sounds tight, controlled and powerful, and the extremely clear and finely-articulated midrange and high frequencies float beautifully on top – even when the volume is set to 'Blast Thy Neighbours'. When you’re gaming, this system will rock your guts with every explosion and toss of a hand grenade, without ever hampering the quieter sounds. The excellent spatial separation, accompanied by tremendously good volume reserves, make the Motiv 2 an absolute recommendation for gamers and music lovers who don’t want to clutter their computers with a 5.1 system – this is a new 2.1 benchmark!

Sound quality games
Although present games are laid out for 5.1 and 7.1 loudspeaker systems, the 2.1 can still give a gamer a very good sound picture. Ego Shooter profits from the hefty and dynamic bass. We winced every time during the shelling and bursts of machine gun fire in Call of Duty 2 – they were that realistic. In other genres as well the Motiv 2 is excellently suited and we can, therefore, recommend the new Teufel product to every gamer.
Sound quality music
Whether you want hard bass tracks or the soft tones of Dido, with the Motiv 2 your music playback will always be fun. Most positive for us was the high stability levels of the two loudspeakers. High sounds were played purely and without any irritating distortion or screeching noises.
Sound quality film
Films such as the Matrix or the Lord of the Rings must certainly sound better over a proper home theatre system, but home theatre beginners can get excellent sound with the Motiv 2 and shouldn’t hesitate to reach for it. Those wanting surround sound should consider the more expensive Teufel Motiv 4 You 2.
Once again the Berlin boxsmiths Teufel prove that they belong to the best of the best. For a relatively inexpensive price you get not only a very nice sounding 2.1 sound system, but also a practical Apple iPod docking station. Worksmanship and design are, as expected, up to their normal exquisite standard, and the luxurious equipment also speaks highly for the Motiv 2. Even expensive 5.1 loudspeaker sets can learn something from this "little brother."
Best 2.1 loudspeaker system on the Market – Reference!
Read the entire test here!
"The sub looks very handsome in its shiny black casing with an enormous 250mm driver that is so large it looks almost threatening.
On the rear of the sub there's an analogue mini jack for PC or laptop input, a second jack for your MP3 player and stereo RCA inputs for an auxiliary device, such as your TV or DVD player. The two satellites are shaped like church windows and each house a 100mm midrange driver and a 25mm tweeter.
You have to cut the speaker's cables from a supplied ten metre length and then bare the ends off the wire, which is rather tedious.But the results are worth the effort, as the audio quality of the Teufel set is superb, especially if the satellites are at the same level as your ears - and the volume can go loud enough to make your ears bleed."
Downloads & support
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
If the interference continues, try using a shorter high-end shielded and insulated RCA connector cable.
