    1) toss in dumpster

    2) save it in case the replacement someday craps out

    3) ebay it

    4) donate to Brian or Geoff

    any other ideas?

    bass shakers!

    the auto-on problem wouldnt really be a problem since you would probably only want to use the bass shakers with some movies and not music. so you just manually flip it on when you've got a film that you'd like to use them for.

    well...you could buy 2 of the aura bass shakers that are on sale at partsexpress now...

    then you wire them in series to create an 8 ohm load...as that would provide plenty of power...

    then mount them to your sofa...and you're set...as for the mounting details...i'm sure someone else can help with that...

    as for the amp...you could just leave it how it is...or build a little box for it simply for aesthetic reasons

    if you're just gonna leave it how it is you might want to drill a hole into the top of the plastic cover that is on the amp so the wire could come out of it instead of the hole it normally comes out of on the back of the amp...just to avoid having the wire jammed between the floor and the amp if you set it on the ground...

    Actually, for the Bass Shakers I'd suggest buying 4 and wiring them in a series/parallel configuration for a 4 ohm load if the amp will take it.
