He suggested using the CMAK and putting 1, or 2, under the cross member feet and using the standard isolators on the rest of the feet. I was skeptical but it's their product. I started just using on per sofa and have found it to be effective but have added a second for each sofa to provide an equal effect. Frankly, 2 LFE and 1 amp on a sofa is more than enough. I actually have to turn it down. But to the point of another poster not having it under your feet lessens the overall effect. Haven't tried it in recline mode as you mentioned.
So what do you, or don't you like about the platform and besides isolators on the 4 corners of the platform do you also use them on the recliners? I
BTW, also left you a message on the W4S thread...
The recliners have metal frame rails. I have all 3 bolted securely to the plywood top surface. This transfers the tactile energy more efficiently through the seats.
2 original Buttkicker I's supplies enormous amounts of energy.
I use the 4 units to increase very low frequency output and increase headroom. I have them lowpassed at 20 Hz. They are blended into my system. I didn't purchase them for the platform I am using them on now. I have owned them for at least 8 years.
I have used tactile transducers for somewhere around 10 years. I find that using them on a platform with seats on top adds more realism than having them mounted to the seat alone.
