My two options as I see it are to build up the bottom of each chair or to add additional sheets of plywood to the BOSS platform to make sure I have enough clearance. Any positives or negatives for the two options either from a construction standpoint or an audio standpoint?
The only downside to the additional sheets of plywood that I can see is the weight of the platform.
I too was hampered by the amount of clearance since I wanted to keep my shakers already mounted in my couch. I wanted a decent rigid platform without too much weight so I cut my 3/4" plywood in half then glued/screwed together for the platform. Then to get the 2 more inches of needed clearance, I made riser posts/feet to replace the existing little plastic feet on the bottom of the couch.
For the riser feet, I used standard 1-1/2" diameter wooden dowel, stained it, then cut with the chop saw, drilled the thru hole & counter bored one side for a bolt head used to mount to the couch. Pretty slick for getting the added clearance without adversely affecting the overall weight. The picture I've attached is somewhat dark, but I think you'll get what I've described.
EDIT: demo'd the chopper drop scene from Lone Survivor last night with BEQ - Shook the remote right off the couch.
