Amp to power 2 bass shakers <$150

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I need an amp to power 2 bass shakers.

These to be exact:

I've never purchased a dedicated amp, so know nothing about what to expect in terms of price. On a slight budget at the moment, so I don't want anything overkill, but I also don't want an amp that is going to struggle with these.

Look at a simple subwoofer amp, they should be easy to get in that range. The extra bonus is that you will get some controls to limit what frequencies will make it to your shakers. You probably want to cut them of starting around 40hz and up and this is different from the settings you are using for your normal subwoofer.

I know absolutely nothing about good brands for this stuff.

Overkill?

I really don't want to spend another $150 unless it's needed.

Good choice; here's another option:

Actually neither of these have remote controls, so I won't be able to program my Harmony remote to turn the shakers on/off when I don't want them on.

Any others?

They both have signal sensing on/off circuits for "remote" control. Don't you have a trigger output on your AVR you could use? If not, how about this?

Ah your right. Thanks i'm probably going to grab the Dayton because it has better reviews.
