Teh bass shakers are those cheap from amazon, rated 100 W.



Maybe a subwoofer plate amp like the Monacor SAM300D is a better choice...?

Smile A Tactile Bass System that I have for sale; Awesome & brand new.

If you don't know what this is, but, you are an Audiophile. let me tell you. This system is perfect if you live in an Apartment, or Condo, and you cannot turn up your A/V System especially late at night. Problem solved. You get incredible Bass (Subwoofer sound) that will not disturb your neighbors. You don't actually hear the bass, but you FEEL it intensely (if you want to). This system consists of 6 PRO Bass Shaker Drivers. You mount them into your chairs/ Sofas. They are flat and they screw into the wooden frame under your Furniture. It also comes complete with a powerful Pioneer Amplifier made for this purpose. You can turn up/ down the Bass to your liking. This System will ROCK your WORLD, and your neighbors will not complain. This can actually solve your problem by allowing you to PLAY YOUR MUSIC STRONGLY, WITHOUT WORRYING ABOUT THE PHONE RINGING. See enclosed pictures. Contact me if you have any questions. You will not want to leave your place. Many who get this like when we sell them Sennheisser wireless headphones. These are also available with surround sound built into the Headphones. These work best because of their range and sound quality. They use RF (not IR wireless.This is pure power. $425.00 complete (Pioneer amp will power all six tactile drivers easily). Contact me if you have any questions.

A/V is only as good as your weakest link.

I don't know which BK LFE you have . If the continuous power is 400/1500 peak, set the I nuke to deliver 400 watt and 4 ohms. Adjust the gain on your I nuke to an acceptable level. If that is not enough go in the Filters tab and add a bit more gain. It's not possible to set a hpf in the I Nuke below around 15 Hz to my knowledge. It may be worth setting a lpf 40-50 Hz so that the BK is not going off all the time.

Derrick, thanks for the help!

I have the standard buttkicker-lfe (the large one). Unfortunately, the hpf can only be set to 20hz. Thanks for reminding me to set the ohms. Which setting do I use to set the wattage?

Under Configuration, hit 4 ohm and spin the limiter dial until you see the correct wattage. Next, go to the second tab set filter to +4. Then under the 3rd tab for parametric EQ set the gain to -4, HS 12, frequency to 20 Hz. This will lower the HPF to around 15 Hz with a Butterworth 18 db slope.

I am thinking of trying some bass shakers for our 2 seat sectional and am hoping to get a few opinions/suggestions.
I am leaning towards getting a bundle from parts express to keep things simple and not have to worry about getting the power and load specs for the amp and shakers wrong.
It looks like 2 on each chair, 1 under seat, and 1 behind back, is what alot of people do, so I think I will give that a try.

My questions are about the bundles.

Part # 300-9016 has 4 dayton shakers and a dayton 230 watt amp for $319.

Part # 300-9008 has 4 BK mini's with the dayton 230 watt amp for $509

Part # 300-9006 has 4 aura shakers with the dayton 230 watt amp for $357

The dayton and aura shakers are much cheaper and appear to have similar specs. so I am leaning towards one of these, but wouldn't mind spending the extra for the BK mini's if they would provide a noticeable improvement over the others.
Or is there a better option for similar $ I should be looking at?
Any recommendations will be appreciated.

I used the Dayton amps and sent them back. They are not has good of a choice as the I Nuke amps. An I Nuke 1000 DSP or 3000 DSP amp is a nice choice. I use the Aura Pro's and like them. I have no experience with the other 2.

Thanks derrickdj1, I will look at the Inuke amps you mentioned.
I was thinking that since they had it in what they call a bundle, that the amps would be a good match, but if the Inukes work better I will probably go with one of those.

Any suggestions on how to use the receiver LFE for the bass shaker plate amp and headphones at the same time?


Gear: ps4 to pioneer lx56 receiver through HDMI. Receiver to 5.1 surround speakers. Second LFE output to plate amp.

What I'm looking for is a way to use headphones and LFE channel for the bass shaker to play at night. The receiver has zone 2 but it doesn't downmix surround sound.

One way is to buy a headphone amp and use the receiver pre-outs? But then I would loose the info of the center and rear channels...
