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.

AuraSound AST-2B-4 Pro Bass Shaker Tactile Transducer
AuraSound AST-2B-4 Pro Bass Shaker Tactile Transducer is rated 4.5642 out of 5 by 179.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Current batch not so goodI bought 4 of these the first 2 are a couple years old an are great. Shook everything like crazy during interstellar. I have them mounted to the underside of the floor running in series at 8 ohms. I wanted more at low volumes with worrying about bottoming out. So I bought two more at the end of December and I'm connected series parallel for a 4ohm total load. Of of them sounded horrible in the first 5 at low minutes of low level listening according to the amp output monitor I never got over -30db. PE replaced it without any hassle. The new one also made bad noise, but I was able to mount it sideways to the side of a floor joist and it behaved normally. The second one started rubbing internally after about 10 minutes of low level tv use.I tore the second one apart and the center hub inside is rubbing on the cylinder it is mounted in and the plastic centering spring could not overcome the friction, which allowed it to get biased to one side and bottom out. These parts should be made in large batches so i would guess there are hundreds or thousands like mine.I'm 0 for 3. I ordered 2 had one replaced and all three are rubbing internally and sound horrible. My two old units have been through many movies at reference level these new ones didn't last 10 minutes at normal tv levels.

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.

I have a 22' Lowe pontoon Boat. Thinking of adding 4 of these to the boat. Haven't decided on (1) under seat, Or (2) under floor with a 75 watt Pyle 2 ch. amp. What would they do? Dual coil sub is mute due to location. don't have a lot of room for spks.

Asked by: TMRST
I would recommend putting them under the seats for the best effect. Keep in mind these are for low frequencies only, they will not produce anything higher than about 100 Hz.

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
I don't know why hooking these drivers up is such a mystery to some people but here is where one may ask how .Bass shakers are just a fancy speaker and their electrical properties are the same as with any speaker (s ) , speaker system (s ) and so on .These are designed to have a load imp. of ~4 ohms each , ok ?Since you have 4 of these and interested in hooking all 4 of them to your stereo , the load imp. is more important than how many watts or what type of stereo you have ect ...Of course the better the stereo and / or more actual power at rated load impedance is not too bad either .In your situation , hooking up 4 shakers best be accomplished by wiring 2 units per channel . Connect 2 shakers together in series to have the load appear to be ~ 8 ohms at the speaker channel terminal .Do the same with the other 2 shakers .So what you'll have is 2 shakers strung together in series on the left channel and 2 more strung together in series on the right channel .This way proper loading of the amp is assured thus less overheating and failure .One more thing most people never ever consider is using extremely large gauge wire to help reduce the line impedance thus allowing the amp to properly " dampen " any low freq. reflections when the physical part of any low freq driver " flaps " back and forth uncontrollably after the signal has already past .This is called distortion and often sounds like a carpet being hung up and smacked with a broom instead of a nice sharp , crisp BOOM from a ( i.e. kick drum ) .Read you amp specs and see if they list the dampening factor for you amp and at what freq it is most efficient . A dampening factor of 400 or more is considered good .Have fun and enjoy .

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.
