Re: MrLoofer's Garage HT Build

These are Aura Pro bass shakers and they are a fraction of the cost of Buttkickers. I have yet to fully calibrate mine and am even running them on full power, until the novelty wears off that is. During the pod emergence scene in War Of The Worlds instead of my sub shaking the foundations and annoying all in my house, I was able to turn the sub down and power on the shakers under my chair. This gives the impression that you have a massive and powerful sub in your room when in reality it's just the shaker under your seat. I love them.

Re: MrLoofer's Garage HT Build

Always been curious about them things, what are you using to power them? Extra amp channels, outboards or what? reason i ask is cause of the curiousity of them but i have no channels to spare or share. Nice to hear a good review of them, got me even more interested in them.

Re: MrLoofer's Garage HT Build

You need a separate sub to power them. You can buy a relatively cheap sub for $100 or less, one that can pump out say 75w per channel, or you can do what I did and use my old, retired 5.1 sub. The beauty of having a separate sub to power your shakers is the extra control such as volume and cross over frequencies. For me using my own sub was definitely the cheaper approach. Setting them up is fairly straight forward. You simply Y-split your main receiver sub/LFE output. Send the one cable to your sub, and the other you split again into the L&R CD/DVD input on your 2nd sub. You then connect the speaker outs on that 2nd sub to your shakers. Pretty straightforward and if you search AVSForum for "Aura Pro" you'll find a sticky with connection diagrams and plenty of info.

The Aura Pros are on sale right now at partsexpress.com. They also have some cheap plate amps on there so be sure to check them out. Let me know if you bite the bullet and I'll assist anyway I can.

Cheers.

mrloofer are your Netops powerful enough to process your ripped DVD's and BR's without any problems? I have heard they have difficulties with streaming video.
