What's a good (hide behind the couch) amp for

  • 1x Clark Synthesis TST239 Silver = 100-150 watts @ 4 ohms
  • 2x Clark Synthesis TST239 Silver = 200-300 watts @ 8 ohms ???!?!??!


Do I have the ohms / wattage right for 2 serial TST239's?

good amp for 1x?
good amp for 2x?

Buttkicker makes transducer amps:


Who else?

Any amplifier can be used just like with a speaker. Something like a iNUKE1000dsp has adjust-ability such as delay for time alignment, low pass frequency settings, power limiter... Look around this site, many threads discussing shakers and what others used for amplification. Many other user comments all around with people discussing their method of amplification and system setup. I would some day like to try a shaker system myself.

Good luck

Edit: Using a bridged amplifier with two 4 ohm can be wired either 2 ohm or 8 ohm, or could do it 4 ohm stereo. You can look at any speaker wiring diagram and it will work the same as with the shakers.

inuke dsp 1000 would be great if you like to tinker.

I just purchased this amp and plan to get 2x TST239 myself. This amp is a perfect match for these transducers and has a built in low pass crossover and can run the 2 transducers in bridged mono mode.

That 150 watt amp isn't really enough power for two of the transducers right? They are 150 watts each, you will be supplying them at 75 watts each. The Inuke DSP 1000 would be a better match IMHO.

As an owner of the Behringer iNuke1000DSP used for two transducers (Crowson), I will echo Archaea's suggestion for the iNuke.

I have 2 Clark TST-229 and 2 Clark TST-239 tactile transducers. I power all 4 using one ButtKicker BKA1000-N Power Amplifier. This amp provides up to 250 watts per transducer (1000 watts total for all 4). More wattage than I need but better more than less. I like the fact that the amp has a built-in crossover and adjustable volume.

EDIT: note that this amp is a subwoofer amp (handles low frequencies only). The Clarks supposedly handle much higher frequencies but I only want to use them for around 50 Hz and below.
