I have 4 of Roman's Jive home theater seats. Originally I had a couch with 2 Aura's mounted underneath. When I bought the JIVE seats my goal was to add two more Aura's to the plate mounted on the bottom (intended for buttkicker mini's). They did not fit. I ended up mounting them on a wood slat that runs at the base of the back of the chair. They were great. Well hidden, secure and easy to access and a solid '4D' experience. These ran to 250 watt amp I bought from parts-express.
My curiosity (and a little cash in the pocket) got me wondering; what would happen if I ADDED the buttkicker mini's ALONG with the Aura's? Well, that's what I did. Since there were specific mounting holes for the mini's, I bought TWO and the Buttkicker 300 W AMP.
What a great fusion of low medium and low!. Couldn't be happier. So, now the Auras fire and the Mini's fire together (wireless receiver from parts-express) but the mini's ADD a level that wasn't there. ANd I believe the Aura's add a level that wouldn't be there if it was just mini's.
The one thing I need to do for the mini's, is tweak them back a bit using the remote control. They can bottom out if you max them out. DON'T. I have now watched OBLIVION twice and Iron Man 3 and there was no bottoming out but were basically firing at full, efficient wattage.
Highly recommend this config. I will add two more mini's down the road (they are under mine and my buddy's chair. They do propagate a bit to the adjoining chairs but only a little).
Anyways, cheers. I couldn't be happier with the setup.
