I will be building a riser approximately 15'x7' isolated on a concrete floor that will support 4 Berkline 90's. I'd be interested in recommendations for the number of tactile transducers required for this size of platform. I haven't decided between the Buttkicker or Clark Synthesis, but would like to know if one Buttkicker or one Platinum would do the trick.

I have another 2 Berklines in the front row that I'm planning to shake with the Crowsen TES 100' - can't afford them for the rear 4 chairs.

Any advice would be appreciated as I'm at the pre-wire stage.

I would wire for two Buttkickers and two will give you more placement options as well as even out the sensation across the platform. I doubt one will cut it, but why risk it?

I definitely would think you would need more than one. My riser is built on a concrete floor (measures roughly 10'6" by 10') and 1 isn't nearly enough to shake a couch satisfactorily. I agree with above poster, 2 would be a better option and would even out the sensation more.

Also agree...two is the right number. More is always fun but probably not necessary.

You could also consider the Earthquake Quake 10.0. One should be powerful enough to shake the whole platform. Here is a Secrets review of the product. You could also use it with the Buttkicker amp if you don't want to spend the $$$ for the Earthquake amp.

Hey craig,

That is another nifty option! I had not seen that before. A little pricey though. But, it might be worth it according to the review.
