"With the Concept E series, Teufel audio created a brand that still reverberates in the ears of connoisseurs as a highly potent PC sound system. The newest system in this series goes under the name Concept E 450, and along with a separate remote, boasts an XXL subwoofer that is well received by customers.”
“That Teufel has stayed true to certain design principles can be clearly observed with the Concept E 450. The sound is left to speak for itself with this no frills look, and the workmanship is good as ever. There are no sharp edges or other intrusive elements that could give the impression that Teufel produced something carelessly.”
"Any doubts about the subwoofer based on its appearance are quickly allayed when it’s in action.
As already mentioned, the subwoofer initially looms rather conspicuously in the foreground. The strong satellites do their best to keep up, even if the impression is created that they would be drowned out based on their size.
The sound is generally impressive and clear as ever. Thanks to individual settings, everyone can adjust the system to achieve their preferred sound. Those who like a big impact will, at any rate, be well served by the subwoofer. The 30 cm diameter can not only be felt in music with a heavy bass; PC games also attain a second dimensionality, and films can also be enjoyed to the fullest. Among others, we enjoyed the ‘Transformers’ movie even better with the Concept E 450.”Conclusion
“In spite of initial prejudices against the super-powered subwoofer compared to the smaller satellites, the Concept E 450 cuts a generally good figure. The sound packs a heavy punch and the interplay of the components is perfectly aligned.”
