    Umm...I know this must be a stupid question...lol. But what exactly is a bass shaker? Is it a subwoofer? Just thought I'd ask because I have always seen them being mentioned but never knew what they were.

    Luis - They are transducers that mount to a seating surface (like a couch, chair, etc...) and connect into the subwoofer path of your system. They have adjustable power and "cross over" and they will vibrate when they are fed a bass signal, according to the power setting and the cross over.

    They can enhance the theater effect, without having to have unGodly volume settings. However, some feel that they detract from the "true" audiophile experience.

    I have a pair and they are fun to play with -- for $25-30 you can't go wrong.

    They also show up on Ebay from time to time...
