So, has anyone hooked up any shakers to an old extra A/V receiver laying around?
I have two receivers. Let's call the main one 'primary' (P) and the second one 'secondary' (S). I was planning on taking the LFE from P, the Y-splitting it and feeding one of the signals it into the secondary (S). This is nice, since S has sub input (in fact it has inputs for L, R, FS, LR, RR and Sub). [S is a Pioneer VSX1016-VTX]
At this point I believe I *should&* have a good LFE only going into the S receiver. I read somewhere to hook a 50Hz low pass filter before the LFE is plugged into the amp, but I am not sure why that would make any sense. Anyhow, I'd plan on connecting the shakers to the L-R speaker terminals.
From, here I'd imagine the trick to getting this to work is to twiddle the setting of the S receiver to stereo only mode and tell it there was no subwoofer hooked up so it passes the signal to the speakers.
At least this is the plan. Will this work? Did I miss anything?
