I posted this in a new thread in the Subwoofer forum but only got one response so I thought I would try here also. Sorry in advance if that is frowned upon but my shakers are coming today
I want to mount two Aura 25 watt shakers in a recliner.
I want to wire them in series(8 ohms) and run them to one channel of my old prologic receiver.
Here's the thing...there is nowhere to mount a cross member to mount the shakers to so they will be parallel to the ground.
There is however room to mount them on the inside of the sides of the recliner.(Perpendicular to the ground but opposing each other)
But...if my thinking is correct they may mechanically cancel each other out like two subwoofers in an IB cube manifold.
Could I reverse the positive and negative connections on one of the shakers so this pistons would be travelling in the same direction? (basically one going up as the other goes down instead of opposing each other)
edit: To clarify further, I would wire as follows:
Positive from amp to positive on shaker1, negative on shaker1 to NEGATIVE on shaker2, positive on shaker2 to negative on amp.
I am hoping this will be an 8 ohm load and cause the shaker pistons to move in opposite directions(inside the shakers).
Will this work like I am thinking? Would this damage the shakers?
I have read the entire sticky shaker thread and I don' t think this was covered.
Thanks for any input!
