    Ok I got them installed a nd tried a few different locations on the sofa but really not getting the amount of sensation I thought I would. As far as mounting them how should I? Now Im just using wood screws should they be loose or tightly mounted, should I use some type of rubber to isolate them from the wood? HELP!!!!

    I had the same problem. I think they were cancelling each other out, so attached them in a 2x2 pattern and they work really well now. Or maybe you have a huge couch, and need more shakers? [​IMG]

    Geez, I wish I had a dig. camera. You'd make a mess in your pants if you saw the underside of my couches. One has 2x10" shakers, the other has 1x12". Use this link, and you'll laugh at any previous attempts at "shaking" your couch. My stove across the house shakes violently.

    Enjoy.
