Bass Shakers - Page 39

post #1141 of 1151
Wow a blast from the past, I used a pair of the aura's about 10 years ago. I bought the cheapest receiver I could find off ebay at the time. Thing came smelling like cigarette smoke, but I think it was maybe 20 or 30 bucks or something and powered them great.

Basically any receiver will work if you run them in series to get 8 ohms.

thanks

I dug out an old RCA RT2500 receiver (see pic below) IT has 5 speaker terminals and a lfe subwoofer RCA output. so would i split the LFW sub out on my main receiver (1 going to current subwoofer) a d other going to this RCA receiver? What input would i use on this rCA receiver? any input DVD/TV etc? and would i use the Left Speaker terminal to wire the bass shaker too? or am i suppose to use the lfe sub out on the RCA amp too?
thanks

What you describe is exactly what I did: split the sub out and send it to "dvd" or whatever and then run whatever channel you hook it to (left or right) speaker output to the shaker. Your receiver will likely have more than enough power to run off a single output. Just fine tune the volume where you want it and then leave it there - control it after that by your main processor volume.

thanks.. i was wondering since this receiver has an RCA sub output for a powered sb. If i conencted the bass shakers to say the Left channel, will it work good? I was thinking the redeiver has a filter that only sends low freq to the RCA LFE subwoofer out and isolates the Center/Left/Rigth/Surrounds ... i am hoping i'm wrong here

Also, would i get more power if i tried to bridge the Left and Right speaker terminals?

The receiver is rated at 50watts 6ohms per channel .... is that enough? the bass shakers are rated at 50 watts each

That will probably work, but you'll be running it pretty much maxed out on output. A higher rating would be nice, but I doubt that amp will run 4 ohm load without overheating, so wire them in parallel, turn the voume up and see how it works. The nice thing is you don't really care about distortion, so you'll probably be fine.

I remember my first shaker installation - adds a whole element to the theater, I think you'll enjoy them.

thanks

I just scored a subwoofer power supply 100W i assume this is better

Hi Tom. I bought 4 of these a month ago. I am powering them with a Dayton SA100 amp with the signal coming from a Sony STD NR-1040 receiver. I have one per seat and it's awesome. I am going to buy 4 more and another amp for my front theater seats.

Hi... I'm a newby and have searched the threads so I apologize if I missed somewhere where my question may have been answered. I'm building a home theater and have bought 3 palliser home theater seats. At this point I have no receiver purchased. I'm going to buy three Aura AST-2B-4 Pro Bass Shakers (one for each seat). My home theater will be a 5.1 system but I'm curious if I can eliminate the need for a separate AMP to power the shakers if I was to buy a 7.1 receiver and have the extra two channels power the shakers. Will this work or will it cause performance issues?

Thanks

Not sure about those shakers, but you will probably need an extra amp. Mine sends the sub-out to the amp, the amp to the shakers. I wouldn't try it on the same amp as the feed will be the surround and not the sub which is what you need. If you have a 7.2 (or 5.2) you may be able to avoid a splitter to the amp.

Thanks sivartk.

I have 3 theater seats and will be installing one aura shaker per seat. What AMP would you recommend for this and how should I hook them up? Seires? Other?

Like I said, I have no equipment yet so I'm pretty flexible.
