    Absolutely, this is what I would do, I have 4 in my couch and I don't feel the need to turn up the volume near as much I do with out them.

    You could look for any of the following to power the bass shakers:

    1) An old stereo receiver
    2) An old power amplifier
    3) A "pro audio" power amplifier
    4) A monoblock amplifier

    I think the Aura shaker pro was the best $25 I spent in this hobby. I have four of them wired in series/parallel to the spare channel of a Crown K2 and they really compliment my system for watching movies. Now that I have experienced this level, I am getting ready to spring for a Buttkicker 2 and see what lies in the nether regions since the Auras have considerably less infrasonic potential.

    Well, they come in pairs, and require only 25 watts each. I have a pair that I run off of an old receiver turned way down. One in each recliner is enough for me. They really add that tactile sensation to explosions and gunshots.

    I have a Denon 1804 with some Bose speakers at the moment (will upgrade to a paradigm set of Studio 100's or Monitors with a sub.

    I want to get some of these bass shakers...where and how do I hook them up...maybe use 2 of them..Will these replace the sub-woofer of the Bose...

    In a post by Wayne Ernst, he says to power these bass shakers using an old stereo receiver...so how will these bass shakers get it's signal from the 1804 receiver...

    I am a newbie and a little bit confused...

    Thanks...
