Well guess what? I installed Full Range Transducers in a Water Park Amusement Ride back in 1982 in Fort Myers Beach, FL It was the expressions of the folks as they splashed to shore that were worth watching!
Much later (1994) at a large Custom Home Show, I set up a Sony Hi-8 Hi-Fi HandyCam up on a shelf and secretly recorded the expressions of the crowd as the Train hit the Berm Wall in the Fugitive. Eyes Popped! Jaws Dropped! People jumped backward or clutched the arm of the person next to them.
And all that from my just using 8 puny Rolen Stars being delivered LFE from the Sub-out jack on the very first Pioneer Dolby AC-3 Receiver to grace the streets of Memphis, TN (AC-3 LD Player too!) ( I had some pull with the Regional Rep.) The amp was a "hidden" Sansui Stereo Power amp 'circa 1978. Pawn shop acquisition. $80.00 I ignored the first Auras as being worthless, and laughed at the excessive cost of the Clarks. Aura Pros finally brought me around. by 1997. (Would that I had tried the Auras !!!)
The next year it was Jurassic Park, and the "Step on the Explorer" scene.
But actually, the scariest and most impressive part was when that big Gecko growled at the Kids through the Car door! You'd of thought you were standing in the monster's mouth. People actually turned pale, and left the room, it was so realistic.
Now that's "Tactile".
BTW, Memphis got caught by some "Tornado Weather" today that included torrential rains in places. One place it "Tsunamied" on was my Job site. The 2" x 8"s laid down into the house were submerged, and the concrete slab in the house was full of standing water in many places, one of which was directly under the sub-floor where 8 Aura Pros must go.
GFI or no, this Homey don't mess with 1/2" 6 Amp Drill Motors, or the Power cords that supply them, when the cords coming into the House and room are laying in water, and I have to work on a 8' Aluminum Ladder?
Ya' alls gotta wait 'till damorrow.
