Two subwoofers are available for the position of the central bass output: the single-channel model for AV receiver operation or the integrated six-channel model with surround receiver.
The Subwoofer SW+R Dolby Digital/dts from the Concept S+R-Set has a full multichannel receiver with three analogue and two digital inputs, 350 watt output, remote control and UKW/MW radio. This means you can directly connect signal sources such as DVD players/recorders, TV, satellite receivers, MP3 players, games consoles and video recorders – and control them all via remote control from the comfort of your sofa. You don’t need a separate surround receiver.
Please note: like all Concept S components, this fully active 5.1 subwoofer SW+R Dolby Digital/dts is available separately, in case you still want to add your own choice of surround system without receiver.

The Teufel subwoofer may not be small, but its sound is wickedly delightful. It effortlessly belts out the music, from dry drum solos to the deep growl of an electric bass.
In motion picture soundtracks, motors can be heard to purr powerfully. The balance was perfect and nothing sounded exaggerated. The subwoofer was easy to adjust using the included remote control.
Test results: Satisfactory
"The company Teufel offers - with the fully active System S+Radio - a completely unrivalled system with excellent sound for this price category. The worksmanship is excellent and the visuals simply slender and gorgeous. The massive aluminium columns are real lookers and find a spot in every room thanks to their low setup space. The assembly of the satellites is child's play simple to set up as well. The subwoofer should be placed separately to help remote control operation. Ideal for (in our estimation) smaller businesses as hairdressing salons and boutiques or those needing radio reception all day long."
"This system offers a superb cinematic experience for this price category. High-end computer users will also get their money’s worth out of this system, granted of course that they use it together with a high-quality sound card such as the Crystalizer (Creative X-Fi) for best results. The price/performance ratio is very good."

In our listening test the loudspeakers of the Berlin manufacturer surprised with a natural, translucent playback and an airy, full room sound. Voices came through light, but there. The dialogue understandability in film is excellent. […]
For a low price, Teufel offers solid technology, a good, full room sound and a remote control for the subwoofer. Hats off!
Price conscious, chic loudspeaker set with a good sound and an excellent price / performance ratio.

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.
The power requirements of subwoofer are usually too high and would damage this kind of mains plug (and therefore the receiver).
This circumstance would drive up the production and storage costs, which would result in a significantly more expensive sales price.
