I switched both to the shorter ISOs and noted that the back ISO was touching but the front ISO was not. This seems to be due to all the extra weight I have on the back of the chair (BKs plus BB). So, I kept the 2 inch ISO in the back and changed the front one back to the 2.5 inch one. I sat down and right away It felt right, with a nice bounce and somewhat of a front to back rocking motion. I put in Ready Player One and the feel was incredible! Great, natural TR with outstanding wobble! When Kong was building jumping and slamming things and causing the bridge to collapse, I was totally amazed! Best I have ever felt that scene EVER!
Great stuff!!

Awesome on another BB (his and hers, cool!) . Thanks for posting all these pics. That really helps show what's going on inside that seatback.

I ordered two more JBLs for two more BB's the other day.

Yeah my platform in the back has more weight as well with the BB and BKs with their mounts, as well as being reclined. Ive got iso's spaced across the 8' wide platform ( 4 in front and 4in the back). With all seats empty, in the front they are just barely touching the platform, but in the back I'd have to really tug on them to get them out. Also, mine has a bit of a front to back rocking motion too. If I set in the seat and move my head like I'm head banging or something, I get some of that front to back rock. It'll wiggle side to side, but doesn't really rock. At least not in the middle seat.

Eventually, things get back in synch and all is well again. Would we even notice? For the most part, my sense is that for my apparatus at least, things "seem" to be fairly well coordinated, but I can't help but wonder. I wish I had more time for instrumenting this stuff and setting up a test regime.
I've always expected platform motion to be out-of-phase with the moving mass motion and posted about it during the early BOSS days, but I haven't been able to envision a scenario as you are describing. Can you maybe give more specifics as to under what conditions you are thinking it could happen?

For non-SPL producing pure TR devices alone, one may prefer to run them so that initial platform movement is upward, but for SPL producing TR devices, it probably makes more sense in most cases to run them so that the SPL is constructive with the SPL from the subs, and let the initial platform movement be downward if that's how it ends up (and of course, align the rest of the TR devices with that). I believe in my testing in the past, the absolute phase of the TR didn't really matter much. I've had email discussions with @Nalleh about this stuff and I believe he tested and can confirm that the platform movement is out-of-phase with the moving mass, both in regular BOSS and HB cases, and I believe he also agrees that the absolute phase of the platform movement doesn't seem to matter much.

Interestingly, I posted in the Viberry thread yesterday asking Matt if vibe were capable of measuring phase and group delay for sweeps. My reason for asking mostly had to do with wanting to test my thoughts on perception of group delay in TR, but I see many other cases where that sort of data would have utility, and this is one of them.

One of the things I am absolutely loving with this newiy implemented HB in the rig, is the ULF wobble, primarily in the single digits. I don’t think I fully understood just how truly amazing single digit wobble is until now. Yeah I’ve had it with the MA’s, but not like this. Combined with the “floatyness” of the tubes, the singles have such an insanely awesome characteristic to them (all the ULF TR does, as well as into the LF) that is just addictive!!!

I was checking out quite a lot of movie material (with BEQ as always) into the wee hours last night. There is just sooooooo much single digit delight scattered all throughout most of these movies that I never even really knew was there before (and I was getting a pretty decent amount of singles from the MAs and SR before converting it to HB). And what a tremendous difference in experience it has made!!! Singles are AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!

A few that I checked out again were, Rise of the Guardians (3D), Avatar 3D), Ford vs Ferrari, and Dracula (Netflix). My god, what a completely different experience with these kind of singles to go along with everything else. The singles really do complete the overall experince in such an amazing way!!!

If any of you guys haven’t checked out “Dracula” with BEQ on Netflix yet, I highly recommended if you want a single digit (and overall ULF) wobble fest used to perfection. Right off the bat in episode 1, you know you are in for an awesome ULF ride . There are just way too many killer ULF wobble scenes to talk about, but there is one section in particular that is definitely worth mentioning. It’s in the 1rst episode about ~15-20 minutes in I think (sorry I didn’t log the Time Stamp). But it’s when Dracula brings the main victim to his castle. When they are sitting at that long table talking when they fist meet each other, the singles are just so INSANELY COOL!!!!!! Ive got my HB boosted quite a bit under 10hz in my baseline TR HC and really helps with this. Crazy how much boost you can throw at this thing and it just keeps on bringing it LOL. I was messing with it some last night in this scene. Another cool thing, is that not only does it seriously bring the single digit wobble, it also pressurizes, which I think is just awesome to go along with the wobble. It can create some serious tension, especially in this scene. Plus, Dracula is just freaky as hell in this part, adding to the creepiness!!! Check out Dracula you guys, if you like these kind of shows. But heck, even if you don’t, it’s worth it for the ULF wobble fest alone LOL

Good idea, I found something at Home Depot last night that I think might work even better. It is 1/4 inch thick and is the same material as your link but has white board (some call it dry erase board) material on one side. I'm thinking the tape will hold better to that (as a teacher it's a real pain to get tape off a white board because it's so sticks so well). I didn't buy it yesterday because for the moment I'm knee deep in the BB project but if I'm at HD again today I'll take a picture of it. I think it was 11 bucks for a 2x4 sheet.

I saw that stuff too. I'm not sure it's worth the extra expense though over the tempered panel. The tape should stick to it as well as it should to to the whiteboard. I bought the Gorilla Glue double sided tape for it and it usually holds well. If the doesn't work I know the 3M double sided mounting tape will do the job. That stuff doesn't want to come off at all. I actually used the heavy duty version of it to secure the maple table top to the top of the box on my 24" sub. I thought it was going to be a good solution so that I could take the top off to move it around. Well, I was wrong. That thing isn't coming off now. I'll probably end up damaging the maple or the plywood if I try to crowbar it off now.

I also wondered if that dry erase material would be hard on saw blades? I will need to get a 2x4 foot section of whatever i end up getting because my single tube that surrounds both drivers is wider than 2 feet so I will run the board that sits on the carpet under the tube "sideways" so that I have enough room, but 4 feet is too wide so I'll have to cut it.

Just finished watching The Expendables 2
Those first 15 minutes have some really good bass, probably some of the best I have experienced in a while

Highly recommend checking that out

Really good bass througout the whole movie actually

Anyone else have a motorized HT chair that's using a BB? I just tried it out using tie down ratchet straps. It makes the chair motor very angry, in fact this last time I reclined all I get is a clicking noise when trying to bring the seat back up. I'm wondering if I put the driver lower down if it would help. I'm glad I haven't screwed in to the chair yet because unfortunately this might be a no-go.

Interesting. I've discovered the chair will work just fine as long as I am laying in it. When it didn't work before I was behind/to the side of it checking to make sure I had enough room to fully recline without the driver hitting the riser behind the chair. I just tried it again to be sure, and yep it works fine with me in it but does not work with no one in the chair.

Back in business!!

Im hoping this will work as well as the inner tubes. Inflates, and can run the whole riser length.

Yep, I had the same problem with the motorized HT seat and I wished I had mentioned it. The first time I tried to recline the seat with it strapped on (not setting in the seat like I always do after a change and getting the seats back on the platform), it was a no go as well. I mean it would just go a tiny bit and that's it. I thought damn, this is not gonna happen and it's going to break my chair after I had spent the time and effort getting it ready (including ordering all the crap I needed). I was bummed and pissed. So I took it off, looked it all over and put it back on. I should have got in the seat like you did, but this time I just stood behind and to the side and helped push down on the seatback and main seat cusion, and it went down thankfully. I still don't know what the problem was. It's like it was hung or something. Fortunately, all good now and sounds like yours is too. But I think it may have just barely bent one of the prongs that the seatback slides on to that locks in place though.

I mean it would just go a tiny bit and that's it. I thought damn, this is not gonna happen and it's going to break my chair after I had spent the time and effort getting it ready (including ordering all the crap I needed). I was bummed and pissed. So I took it off, looked it all over and put it back on. I should have got in the seat like you did, but this time I just stood behind and to the side and helped push down on the seatback and main seat cusion, and it went down thankfully. I still don't know what the problem was. It's like it was hung or something. Fortunately, all good now and sounds like yours is too. But I think it may have just barely bent one of the prongs that the seatback slides on to that locks in place though.

Looks like I will have issues after all. I screwed all the wood on so no turning back now... the problem now is everytime I recline it "pops" the prongs out of the slides - not completely but it unlocks the mechanism so that I have to push the seat back down to get it to snap in place again.

It won't do it if I recline up to half way, but if I go beyond that I hear (and feel) the "pop".

I need to figure this out, I don't think I'll be ok with not being able to recline all the way.

I haven't even played with the BB yet, at this point I'm still trying to figure out the chair issues.

For kicks, seriously, try taking the preout from your center channel and hooking that up to your tactile amp and running it full range and test. I did this a while back it was very interesting. Make sure you set your center to be "large" or "full range" to test.
markmon.....Thanks. I use the BEQd app that Matt developed and is used in the BEQ thread. That app not only facilitates easy loading of BEQ's into the miniDSP for post BM BEQ implementation. But, it can also be used for shaping the actual soundtrack of the music or movie to make it feel and sound the best for your system. Any LFE frequency (1-120Hz) in any of the channels of the soundtrack can be shaped depending on what each one needs. It also allows you to see the frequency content for each channel before shaping begins. And, lastly, it has an internal BM feature which can be setup to behave just like your AVR's BM so you can also shape the sub-out signal of your AVR to look exactly how you want it for your TR devices.

Basically, you can shape any of your bed channels plus the sub-out channel of your AVR in the 1-120Hz range. What makes it unique for home theater use though is being able to see the frequency content and levels of all channels in the original soundtrack before you even begin shaping each of them to meet your needs.

Here's a link to the section of the BEQd user's guide Matt published related to remux. There's a link in the first page of the BEQ thread also for the actual BEQd software download. It's free and super powerful if you'd like to experiment.

I've been shaping signals from 1-80Hz with great success for about a year now using BEQd remux. The fullness my system provides with boost in the 40-80Hz range in all channels combined with ultra low frequency TR from my BOSS devices being driven from my sub-out channel combine so nicely. I sometimes have to pinch myself it sounds so good for music and movies.

If you ever go with a HoverBOSS you will also discover the power of adding filters below 10Hz and shaping that curve exactly how you like it. The single digit wobbles is where the magic lies in most films and HoverBOSS brings the magic. Especially when you know what the movie has in that area and can shape it how you like it for your system. It's movie specific but magical when you can find those soundtracks with intended content down there. One recent example that blew my mind with sub 10Hz boost was Alien:Covenant. It amped the atmosphere so much....we were on pins and needles the entire movie with a subtle 6Hz wobble happening during most of the film.

By the way, I think I'm the only one in the world that uses BEQd remux for movies and music so it's not very popular....the learning curve is steep and some soundtracks can take awhile to shape and experiment with what feels and sounds best. You have to really enjoy this kind of stuff to justify the learning curve and time remuxing.

Enjoy!

Darn, I'm sure you're probably trying it on your main MLP seat right, which is different from your other seats IIRC?

Well, try it out right quick to see if you like the sensation before you spend a ton of time on it. I think you'll love it once dialed to the right levels and all that. But, most seats are different and so are peoples preferences. Those darn variables again LOL

Yes, I'm trying it only on my MLP for now.

Ha, looks like I'm going to have to live with chair issues. This is too good man, you guys were right! I think mine BB setup would feel just like yours, the only difference is that the 1/4 inch board is on the outside of my chair instead of the inside.

For movies its incredible and seems to have limitless headroom - BUT - for music it's off the charts good. I feel the punch everywhere, not just my back/chest. When I toggle on and off mute buttons on the HB, BB, Crowson, while listening to music it's not even close. The BB is my favorite. However, all 3 do add important elements. The HB is like the realistic foundation that everything else is built on. The Crowson adds the most feel to the arm rests. The BB just destroys me, end of story.

With movies HB still beats BB - but both together are perfect.



Overall if I had to keep just one I wouldn't be able to pick because BB is better for music and HB for movies. The comparisons don't really matter since I'll be using both but just thinking out loud.

I haven't sealed my HB yet so there is still room for improvement.

As far as the chair goes, I guess I'll just have to live with the issue when I fully recline and then remember to push the top of the chair back into place when I get up. Sucks but after playing with this new toy there is no way I'm giving it up.

Took a few pics today:










^ I need to hit those screw holes with a little spray paint. I thought about covering the whole area with that black spandex milliskin stuff but everyone that comes over here knows I'm crazy anyway so I think I'll leave it as is.

Listening to music as I put this post together. My god... this is what I have always wanted. So great... can't thank you guys enough.

You non music guys should try the BB for music. I'm betting you will start becoming music guys. Shelby I'm looking at you.


edit

Sorry the pics are so big, and I don't know why the 3rd one is rotated. AVS seems to randomly do that sometimes.

Hi

If I use this would it not change ALL the levels across the PC?

I still have headphones for sound and want to listen to headphones with the AURAS at the same time.

Glad you’re enjoying your BB! It definitely complements the HB perfectly! However, once you try HBD you will really start to hit your systems potential!

No, you can select the channel(s) to apply the filter(s) to.
And it's very easy to turn off (delete or rename config.txt).
It makes more sense the more you play with it.
And it's free, so what the heck.

@carp - AWESOME!!!!! I had a feeling you wouldn’t want to live without it once you tried it . Nice description of all running together too and what each brings.

Looks really nice too, fantastic job!! Sucks that you have motor issues when reclining, but sounds like it’s more than worth it.

So did you end up sealing it with a tube then, or no?

Also, yeah I’ll have to check out some just straight music with it. I know what music that has been in the movie soundtracks has been pretty incredible and even insane feeling. There is a club scene in 3rd ep of Dracula that checks all the boxes for me. It even has a little bit of the John Wick club scene music in there. The thing about pounds me to death if I turn it up much and will give the chest cavity a serious workout LOL

Thanks mojo - I know, I can't believe this can get better! I think I'll tackle that tomorrow. I am so not looking forward to yet again moving all my chairs and platforms but sounds like it will be well worth it! I should tape both sides of the tubes (above and below) right? That's what I did on the BB - double sided tape on both sides.

You may want to try some kind of counterbalance weight on the front part of the chair. That's a lot of stuff hanging off the back.
Glad you're happy with it, though.
