The following information relates to the “perfect home cinema” in which the viewer or listener sits centrally at the correct distance from the television or screen (see diagram, right) and no objects (tables or similar) are placed between the viewer and the screen. Unfortunately, the room, furnishings or other circumstances do not always allow for optimum arrangement. Modern AV receivers offer a range of solutions to compensate electronically for any deficiencies in placement. The following general rule applies: You can always experiment with what works best in your listening room in terms of sound and appearance based on our recommendations. Let your ears (and eyes) decide!

Front speakers

  •  The front speakers CS 25 FCR Mk3 are placed to the left and right of the screen.
  •  They should form, as far as possible, an equilateral triangle with the listener – what is known as the stereo triangle (distance to listener = distance between speakers).
  •  The speakers should project sound directly into the room or slightly towards the listener.

Center speaker

  •  The center speaker should be placed centrally on an arc curving slightly towards the television.
  •  The table stand ensures that the speaker is stable and minimises vibration. No fixing is required: place the speaker in the centre of the stand.Teufel Consono 25 MK3 Satellite Speakers 3

Surround speakers

The surround speakers are placed or wall-mounted to the sides of the listener at head height (140 to 210 cm).

Wall mounting
If you choose to wall-mount your speakers, please note the following:Teufel Consono 25 MK3 Satellite Speakers 4Risk of damage!

  • Incorrect mounting can lead to damage.
  •  If mounting the speakers on the wall, make sure that the job is carried out by a professional.
  •  Before drilling holes use a metal detector to make sure that there are no electrical cables or pipes in the wall within the drilling area.
  •  Use only suitable screws and wall plugs for fixing. Verify the load capacity of the walls.
  •  Use the key-hole slots on the rear of the speakers to hang the speakers on screws fixed into the wall before.
  • The key-hole slots are also suitable for fixing the speakers to a wall bracket or speaker stand (you will find suitable items in our online shop).


Danger of injury/damage!

  • Arrange the cables so that they do not pose a trip hazard.
  •  Unplug the power plug of your AV receiver or multichannel active subwoofer from the mains.
  •  Lay speaker cable from your AV receiver or multi-channel active subwoofer to the speaker. Use a high-quality double wire speaker cable with marked strands for this.
  •  Use the connection terminal with the two clamps on the back of the speaker to connect the speaker cables.
  •  The terminals are each marked red (+) and black (–).Teufel Consono 25 MK3 Satellite Speakers 5

Make sure the polarity is correct! Connect the like coloured terminals. The speaker connections on your AV receiver or multi-channel active subwoofer should be similarly marked. The strands of the speaker cables are marked with different colours or shapes.

  •  Split the wire down by approx. 30 mm on both ends and remove approx. 10 mm of insulation each.
  •  Twist the wire so that no strands are protruding.
  •  Press down the red and the black levers on the connector clamps and guide the exposed ends of the single wires into the openings which are accessible now. Releasing the levers clamps the single wires securely in place.
  •  Connect all of the cables to the speakers in this way.
  •  Connect the other ends of the speaker cables to your
  • AV receiver or multi-channel active subwoofer. You should be able to find corresponding notes in the operating instructions of your device.

Crossover frequency

  •  The optimum crossover frequency for the CS 25 Mk3-Set is 150 Hz. Where possible set your AV receiver or DecoderStation as close as possible to this value.
  •  If the satellite speakers are used as part of a Concept C set the crossover frequency will be provided by the subwoofer.
  •  For Concept E sets without DecoderStation you set the crossover frequency in your soundcard settings. If it is not possible to do this then please select the setting “small” for the satellite speakers.

Care and cleaning

Clean the speakers regularly with a soft, damp microfibre cloth. Please be absolutely sure to observe the following notes in the process:
