Set a Low Pass Filter and High Pass Filter(lpf/hpf) at lpf 40-50 Hz and the hpf at 20 Hz. Both of the filters can be a Butterworth 18 dp slope.

If the amp for the shakers has crossover filters, do it in the amp.

Thanks again Derrick. I did more research and found out that the crossover mode on the amp sends a LPF to one channel and a HPF to the other channel but its only from one source which wont work for me. Im currently using one channel to drive my center channel and wanted to use the other channel for the bass shakers.

Is there any other way i can use a LPF for the bass shakers ?

I just received my first bass shaker and amp to power it. A Buttkicker mini-LFE and a DaytonAudio APA150 amp. Not exactly sure how to set it up.

I haven't screwed it to anything yet. Just wanted to see if I can get it shaking.

Didn't start off shaking, but finally, it did. Surprised how little shaking it did produce. Maybe once it is screwed to board and the board is screwed to the chair, then maybe it will be more pronounced. Or maybe I have hooked it up wrong. Not one hundred percent certain that I have it right.

Unplugged the line connections to an existing sub and plugged them into the amp's L/R Line Input. Then connected the amp's left speaker black output to the shaker's black pigtail, and the left speaker's red output to the shaker's white pigtail. Stereo selected on the mono/stereo switch. On the low pass frequency adjustment, I have it turned all the way to the right. The low pass selector switch on FLAT. The front Level Adjustment all the way to the right.

If anyone can offer advice, that would be quite useful.
