Bass Shakers Aura or Dayton ?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi all

I am looking at purchasing bass shakers for my couch in my home theatre. Since i live in Canada, shipping always hurts the budget.
I have read reviews on both units and all reviews are good, due to the prce, i assuem the Aura's are better but by how much?

2 Aura AST-2B-4 Pro Bass Shaker Tactile Transducers from parts express with shipping are $148.21
4 Dayton Audio TT25-16 PUCK Tactile Transducer Mini Bass Shakers 16 Ohm from parts express with shipping are $$81.96
6 Dayton Audio TT25-16 PUCK Tactile Transducer Mini Bass Shakers 16 Ohm from parts express with shipping are $112 (not sure how to wire 6)


So price is a big difference. For $81 bucks i get 4 Dayton bass shakers whereas for $148 i get only 2 Aura's. But i understand from long life lessions that "you get what you pay for"


I am looking to power which ever i buy with my old RCA receiver, see specs below but its 50watts per channel @ 6 ohm

Amplifier Output Details 50.0 Watt - 6.0 Ohm - 40 - 20000 Hz - THD 0.9 % - 1.0 channel(s) ( Center ) , 50.0 Watt - 6.0 Ohm - 40 - 20000 Hz - THD 0.9 % - 2.0 channel(s) ( Front ) , 50.0 Watt - 6.0 Ohm - 40 - 20000 Hz - THD 0.9 % - 2.0 channel(s) ( Rear )
any advise is greatly appreciated
thanks
guys

I'm looking into the Aura's and Dayton's myself, and I also live in Canada.
What did you end up with?

Edit: Just realized this thread should be in the subwoofers and tactile transducers section.

I don't have any experience with the Dayton Pucks, but I do have 2 Aura Pro AST-2B-4 shakers. I paid $98 for the pair on sale, shipped. I also picked up 4 of the older AST-1B-4 shakers off ebay for about $65 shipped for all 4. These have a 25 watt power handling compared to the 50 watt handling of the 'Pro' model. In my experience the AST-1B-4 has about 75% of the shaking force of the AST-2B-4, but I consider them a very good option for the price.
