    Reid.

    I have the loveseat and two recliners wired with the butts and backs using the 50watt bass shakers that were purchased from ebay. They are being powered by an old JVC 100 watt/channel receiver. I have a wiring diagram if you are interested.

    In all I have 8 bass shakers in my HT and it really does add a new dimension. They are acutally tie wrapped to the coils of the cushions and the shake the he!! out of the furniture. I tried mounting the shakers into the frame but I thinl the perfromance of them being tie wrapped is a little better.

    The wiring diagram is seet up so the channel switch (A/B) can control turning off certain shakers and the balance is configured to control the balance of the butt and back shakers so it is somewhat even.

    My email is [email protected], please make the subject bass shakers and please use an email that can accept attachments.

    Scott

    Crap, I shouldn't have read this! Now I have to have them. I live in an apartment and can't have a sub, so these sound like the perfect upgrade. Cheap to boot to!

    I'm goona buy 4 of those Aura's and the 120w sub amp. It looks small and should be able to hide it fairly well.
