Hello, picked up a set of Quest D-box 2 axis chairs and after reading this thread it seems 3 axis is the way to go.

As I picked these up used, who do I contact to see about changing these to 3 axis? Do I call D-box directly?

Thanks

You can call them, they may send you to a dealer. Most likely you can just add an actuator, but it is possible that the hub in the chair may not have the extra connector, and you would need another hub to. I doubt that is the case. Hope it goes well, please let us know how it turns out!

Oh, and congrats on joining the world of D-Box!

You would need to add 2 actuators to them given that you said chairs so it sounds like a twin seat/loveseat type configuration, which would have actuators in the rear corners and a ball joint in the front. Each APM can handle a maximum of three actuators so you would need a second APM to install along with another set of actuators and the existing one would need to be reset as a 3 axis system. There were some 2 axis systems sold in the very beginning that are not compatible with the current actuators but those are quite rare - generally the first 2 axis systems made.

3-axis systems are substantially better than the 2 axis systems, I feel. If you have a local dealer, they may be able to help you out, as it will take a field install to get them put in. I don't know if you have a dealer who is capable of doing a field install near you though.

So, hopefully, whenever that's no longer a pie-in-the-sky product, it won't matter how an audio track is encoded.
You are completely spot-on with this: the new controller will work like Shazam so it won t matter anymore what the future will bring. D-Box will just 'listen' to the movie that is playing and sync.

I don't see how people who are upgrading chairs with the 2 actuators in the rear are moving to 3 actuators. I have both types (I scavenged the actuators from the old chairs), and the mounting locations aren't compatible. Trust me, you are going to be better off leaving well enough alone and enjoy 2 axis.

Thanks for the heads up. If they are willing to pay for an ad, perhaps we are getting close to something real.

I'm thinking of getting D-Box but I have never been in a D-Box chair etc. I'm in Australia so going to a Cinema with D-Box is out of the question etc.
The dealer here as far as I know only orders them in as needed as of course they are expensive any they are 1400 miles away anyway.

I think if I bought a couple of seats I would probably import them myself by sea freight as I can save quite a bit over the prices here but I would love it if somebody close (Gold Coast/Brisbane) had one that I can sit in and see what I think.

If anybody reading this thread is close by and you don't mind if I came around to experience it then please send me a PM. It's a long shot but if I never ask then I will never know.

I'm sure there are some home theatres close by to me that have D-Box in them as there are lot of houses around here worth $2-$20 Million. My neighbour has a local carpet warehouse and he has been telling me some stories about what carpet people are using from him etc but he is not into this stuff much (although he does have a PJ and screen his wife uses solely) so he wouldn't know what I'm talking about.

I'm thinking it'll shake the entire house, rather than just the chairs.

It will either be for their new controller, cheaper actuators or both. The house idea was pretty funny.

I really like the recent effort to keep the D-Box Website updated. Need for Speed is scheduled for tomorrow and Bullet to the head is listed to be out on 8/12. Recently added to the “Currently working on” list are the following.
  • Justin and the Knights of Valour
  • Sabotage
  • Divergent
  • Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2
Not my 1st picks, but nice to see non-theatrical releases still.

Thanks THX, but will the region B 3d version, which is not native 3d but a decent conversion and a must for this kind a flick, will it synch?

Won't know until you try it. The 3D version of Texas Chainsaw wouldn't sync until they added that, for example. And that was a regular release the same time as the non-3D one.

Really pissing me off with these games with no 3D releases in the states. First Frozen, now this. At least Frozen didn't require a region-free player.
