Dayton Audio BST-1

I think my hording of electronics may have finally paid off.

I am wanting to run 5 Dayton Audio BST-1 bass shakers and I have an old sony DA5300 7.1 channel 120w / channel, 4 ohm capable receiver.

The AVR has a multi stereo mode that will take a stereo signal and play it through all of the speakers.

I am intending to use one of the subwoofer outputs on my Onkyo TX-NR1030 to send a signal to the Sony split into a left and right input channel. then run the BST-1s off each channel directly.

just making sure my thinking is correct... i've been reading a lot about these and reading up to do 2 VBSS builds. i should know to stick to one thing at a time LOL


Thanks!

You will want to use the subwoofer out of the 2nd receiver, using it to lower the crossover frequency to 50Hz, as that is the sweet spot for bass shakers. Then use a splitter to input L&R (mono) signals to the receiver's low level inputs for each amp you choose to use.

i'm not following - the second receiver is only getting the subwoofer output (cutoff at 80hz) from the first receiver. then the second receiver would be the amp for the shakers. avr 2 will play down to 20 hz to all channels. i might need a crossover to knock the signal down to 50hz.

You already have the crossover in the second receiver, you just need to use it. Route the 80Hz signal into the second receiver, set the crossover point to 50, then run the sub out (now at 50Hz) from the second receiver into the inputs for your amp channels. In that way, all your transducers only see the 50Hz and under signal.

Optionally, just send the full range signal to the second receiver, the result will be the same after the crossover is set to 50.

man - i am still not getting it. you said "from the second receiver into the inputs for your amp channels"

this is where i'm lost. I don't have other amps - i thought i could use the AVR 2 as the amp.

main AVR subwoofer out > AVR 2 aux input > sub out > where? this AVR does have pre - ins for each channel

my thinking was main AVR sub out limited to 80 hz > AVR 2 > speaker wires > bass shakers

Try it your way. If you like it, you're home free. if not, we'll address it in more detail.
