really like the bass shakers but setting them up is totally driving me crazy.


I finally went out and bought a better AMP but still having a problem. This new AMP displays "overloaded" and then switches off. So I don't think the problem is impedence any longer.


I think the problem is the input from my Denon 5800. Here is the setup.


Denon 5800

Pioneer 600 watt receiver

4 bass shakers.


I split the sub out from my Denon 5800 and put one into my Paradigm servo 1500 and the other I split again and put in the Pioneer AMP as inputs. One left and the other right.


I am guessing something must be wrong with the signal coming from the Denon and going into the AMP. I am coming out the sub pre-out of the Denon.


Thanks for any help,

Typically bass shakers are 4 ohms, if you're wiring them in parallel (2 on the left, 2 on the right) then you are showing the amp 2 ohms. Wire then in serial, 2 of them will then show 8 ohms to your amp for each channel (L/R)

And in case you're wondering how to do a "serial" wiring of your bass shakers:


+ output of receiver/amp to shaker 1.

- of shaker 1 to + of shaker 2.

- of shaker 2 to - of receiver / amp.


Voila!


Regards,
