Product Details

AuraSound AST-2B-4 Pro Bass Shaker Tactile Transducer

Are you getting all the bass you want? Not yet!

The AuraSound AST-2B-4 Pro Bass Shaker—also known as a butt shaker, or tactile transducer—works on the principle that low bass is mostly felt and not heard. Experience earth-shaking bass from all of your media: music, computer, movies, or video games. The AuraSound Pro Bass Shaker was designed originally for automotive applications in order to produce big car subwoofer bass without taking up valuable space in the vehicle's trunk. Pro Bass Shakers are ideal for convertibles and sports cars, or wherever installing a large car stereo subwoofer is not practical. They can also be used in the home to make your own movie or video game chair.

Easy to install, so you'll be shaking in no time

An AuraSound Bass Shaker simply mounts to the floorboard under the seat or to the bottom of a chair to send vibrations through the structure, enabling you to feel awesome bass. Each Pro version bass shaker handles 50 watts of power and produces more driving force than a standard shaker. Shakers connect to an amplifier like ordinary speakers do, so it's easy to use an array for larger surface areas like couches or love seats by utilizing a conventional series-parallel wiring configuration. AuraSound part number AST-2B-4. Sold and boxed individually and also available packed 16 units per case.

Just the facts, please…

Specifications: • Power handling: 50 watts RMS/100 watts max • Impedance: 4 ohms • Usable frequency response: 20 to 80 Hz • Fs: 40 Hz • Force peak: 30 lbs. per ft. • Dimensions: 6.2" dia. x 2.5" H.

Sub-bass that travels through solids instead of air

Want to feel your music? Connect a Pro Bass Shaker and experience every thump, thrust, and shake...the way bass sound was originally intended. Aura's patented technology preserves the sound pressure levels so there's no distortion while enhancing the bass energy delivered from your stereo. We're taking surround sound to another level...

Get all of the excitement your media can deliver

Bass Shakers from Aura Systems add the exciting dimension of feeling to the sights and sounds of video arcade games, movies, stage shows, and multimedia attractions! By actively converting bass sound waves into spine-tingling vibrations, Bass Shakers turn entertainment into a "moving experience"!

Bass Shakers bring coin-operated video arcade games to life by transforming a game's audio output into body-pulsing tactile sensations. With Bass Shakers installed into arcade seats or floor platforms, players can feel everything from a fighter's punch to the roaring engine of a Formula One race car.

You wouldn't pay full price to see half a show, would you?

In movie theaters, the action jumps off the screen, the soundtrack comes to life, and the entire experience is intensified. Bass Shakers hook up like a speaker and mount directly to a standard theater seat. Installed in seats, tables, booths, floors of showrooms, and theaters, Bass Shakers provide audiences with a more complete entertainment experience. Las Vegas stage extravaganzas, hit Broadway musicals, and rockin' concerts virtually jump off the stage into the audience. Bass Shakers are ideal for bringing music, on-stage special effects, and laser shows to life.

Add value, thrills, and total satisfaction

For commercial applications, Bass Shakers turn up the revenue potential of any entertainment experience. Thanks to low purchase, installation, and maintenance costs, the Bass Shaker is a virtual winner in the race to provide affordable upgrades and enhancements to existing facilities.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rock Your RoomPurchased and installed two of the Bass Shakers, and the Slimline sub 1000 sub woofer in my recroom/theater. Truly enhanced the experience, NOW it is like being in the theater. You are going to need another amp to power the shakers, but it is wellworth it for the viewing experience.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Strong little transducer!I brought these hoping to add a little extra tactile experience to the HT. These shakers deliver strong, realistic tactile feel to the movies.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finishing Touch!Okay, if your like me you have your home theater set up and your looking for that little extra detail. Well look no further. I installed one of these babies on my side of the sofa and like others the Wife could care less at the time. Once I tuned it in with my system, we watched the American Music Awards. I couldn't believe the difference, it was like being there with the added bass sensation, and I have two nice subs hooked up already. I had the wife sit in my seat to demo it and she immediately said buy another for her. Do yourself a favor, and any others that want to really experience the movie or music, and buy one for each seat that will be occupied.

AuraSound AST-2B-4 Pro Bass Shaker Tactile Transducer

Hello , Are these drivers " on " full time at any power levels ? My research has turned up info of other drivers whose physical output is squelched until input power has reached a minimum threshold .

Asked by: prospective buyer

I have an old Denon AVR5800 5.1 receiver putting out around 170x5 WPC. If I wanted to use the front channels only to run 4 Aura's, how might I best connect them to my racing rig?, 

Asked by: ColoJB

Is this product able to be used in Japan? The voltage in Japan is 100 volts, and the frequency of electric current is 50 hertz. Looking at the technical info I can't tell whether it would work or not?

Can I use my Zone Two in my AVR to power one or two of these?

Asked by: Homey4uk
This is not recommended unless the AVR will safely handle a 4 ohm load.

I just bought this and it still is passing a ton of high notes through it,would it work ok to run the audio outputs through a sub crossover to take out all highs?

Asked by: rikki99ky1
Yes you can use standard subwoofer crossovers on these shakers as long as they are rated for 4 ohm loads.

i have a Sony STRDH550 (5.2, 145W each 6 ohms), with one of the RCA sub outs going to a powered front firing subwoofer.  If i wanted to do 2 aura AST-2B-4 Pros, can i simply go from the other rca sub out to a 100W sub amp, wired to the auras?
