1. Has anyone attempted to install the pistons on these seats? Is it possible.

2. I know about their platforms, and absolutely, I can use them on the lower row, but on the riser, the chairs sit about 2" in from the edge of the riser. I.e. there riser width was build to accommodate the width of the chairs, but the D-Box platforms need a couple of inches not to mention the room for them to operate.

I'd love to be able to retrofit the D-Box pistons on these chairs if possible.

Didn't know if anyone else has attempted this.

Thanks
I've looked at the D-Box as well. If it were only in the 2k price range....looks impressive.

I don't think you'll have much luck putting the actuators in the chairs. I have d-box ready chairs in my front row from cinamatech. I added the Tributes in the back row as they look so similar. They are set up very differently under the seat and I think the forces with dbox would break the Fusions down quickly if you could figure it out.

Reach out to thxman n the dbox thread ($20,000 plus tab). He's probably the best source here for installations outside the norm.

Folks,

Those who were waiting for the buttkickers - they are starting shipping. First 10 orders are shipping today.

More to come. It looks like Guitammer getting their act together.

Roman, I bought Lagoons and love them. I recently purchased shakers from Parts Express. http://www.parts-express.com/aurasou...ducer--299-028

Before I start playing around and making a mounting plate, I"m wondering if you sell mounting hardware that fits the chair? If not, where would you suggest mounting a plate as not to damage the chair?

Equipment: Denon AVR-4520, Fusion Tempest (LCR), Fusion Alchemy (4xSurrounds+Wides+Heights),15" Dayton Ultimax X 4, SMX 2.35:1 Screen

The plates that we use are designed for BK-LFE minis and advanced BK4-4 buttkickers. The pre-drilled wholes are to fit those units.

You may want to get some plywood, cut about 18"x6" pieces and bolt them on the bottom to the metal frame of the chairs. You can use some wholes that are on the frame, and you may need to drill a few more to mount the plate. Then you can install the transducer on top of that plate.

Some people mount the Aura shakers to the bottom of the seat and used heavy duty wire ties to do so. This is the easiest way to do it.
