Did you look at the MT-110s? Mine are MTM 210s.

Yup. Even the 110s are a little too big for my living room. I like the size of the SVS Ultras. But they're overpriced IMO.

Yep. The ultras are good but yes overpriced. PSA are much better. Look at Ascend acoustics as well and chane.

They are simple to wire.

Here is a good package:

Small world I used to rock some SVS ScS-01's in my first theater room. I gave them to my brother in law like 9 years ago and they are still going strong.

Yeah man those were really nice speakers. They used to sell them as package with the SBS-01s as surrounds. My friend bought them from me for a couple of hundred bucks plus the PC12-NSD for a few more.

Can't help you with that one, I am not sure you need to worry about decoupling if you are installing the transducer directly to the frame of the couch. I would say install it first and see if you feel like decoupling is necessary. I don't have my home theater chairs decoupled from the carpet.

What's the difference between connecting the bass shakers in series and individually?

So have a V1811 sub but the MT-110 speakers are too large? The 110's are not the large at all in comparison to the sub you have.

The difference is the load and how many ouputs on your amp you have. They are 4ohm so a pair in series is 8ohm and individually you would get 4ohm. If your doing a pair I would try them in series first.

That's how you wire in series
Quote:
For two bass shakers, connect the positive of one bass shaker to the negative of the other bass shaker (**the white wire**). Next, connect the unused positive and negative terminals on the bass shakers to the corresponding positive and negative terminals on the amplifier.

You wire in series to keep the impedance from dropping. This is done (opposed to standard parallel wiring) so the resistance level(ohms) doesn't drop below what the amplifier is capable of driving.

Should I get a 4-conductor wire like this https://www.amazon.com/Monoprice-Acc...er%2Bwire&th=1?

Cut the white wire and connect the two shakers?

What do I do with the green wire?

Can I use either black or red side of a 2-conductor speaker wire to connect the shakers?



Like this?

I think I found my answer. I would cut up and use the red speaker wire to connect the two bass shakers.

@pda15 All you need is regular 2 wire speaker cable(2 conductor).

To get that extra piece of wire that runs between the two terminals for series wiring is to cut a chunk of the 2 conductor speaker cable off and just use 1 wire. No need to pay extra for the 4 wire unless you want to. It is kind of a waste though unless you are trying to do something else I am missing.

2 conductor speaker wire will pull apart easily so you can just use 1.

Edit I see you have two diferent diagrams of two different amps. One has 2 connectors and one has 4. If your amp only has 2 connectors you would only need 2 conductor speaker wire.

I got them working. Do I have to change any settings on the AVR or sub? What crossover should I set on the bass shaker amp?

You should not have to change any settings on the AVR or sub. You can try the various crossovers but I like 50-60hz and below. This seems to give me tactile feeling for the action scenes in movies but I don't find them shaking in non action scenes where I feel it could take away from the movie.

Loving the effects of the bass shakers. Must have for bassheads. Thanks @ack_bk for recommending this to me.

Awesome! I used to think they were gimmicky but now I can't imagine action movies without them.
