Bass shakers off zone2/ampassign

I have a denon 2400h and want to add bass shakers to my existing 5.1. I figured I could try to use the 2 extra outputs from zone2. I imagine this would work easily but the issue is getting it to be low pass only. I dont want them hitting for everything. I have tried to find some in line low pass filters similar to bass blockers, but am not having any luck.

While this could technically work, I'm not sure it is a great idea. AVRs don't have dedicated power to each channel so any power required to drive the shakers is going to take power away from the rest of the speakers. You will likely run out of amp power pretty quickly.

One thing you might want to try is splitting the AVR's sub out (twice if you already have sub connected) and looping that back into an unused pair of L/R analog inputs (for example, 'CD') which you would then assign to Zone2. This way what you are sending to Zone2 will already be low-passed at either the AVR's speaker channel crossover settings or, for the LFE channel bass, at the LFE channel's ceiling.
