    Bass Shakers.. Worth it or not? And also, how much can a decent set cost ya in Canadian funds (roughly)? Do you need a whole separate receiver to run them?

    thanks

    Joe, you want to ask this question here in the Speakers/Subs area, not the Basics area.

    I use 4 shakers in my recliner loveseat- they really provide seat rocking effect during action scenes, but i prefer to turn the amp for them off when i listen to music.. they are good to have feature in your system definetly. I bought them from partsexpress - total cost with sub amp was around 200 bucks(US). Good Luck!

    I power mine (I run 2) with the surround back channels out of my HK 525

    Wouldn't they be more effective using an LFE signal? My guess is that the surround channels do not receive a sufficient amount of LFE to really get a good result from the bass shakers. I don't use them though, so I am most like wrong.

    Just curious...

    Well I am using an LFE signal. My receiver allows me to use the 6th and 7th channels (surround backs) as a multi room application.

    I run an LFE signal to an unused input (video 3 or something) and select that input for the multi room source. So all I do is turn the multi-room input on, and voila I have a whole lotta shakin goin on[​IMG]

    That makes sense. It's actually a great idea. I could probably get away with a similar setup.
