Clark Synthesis TST209 Tactile Transducer Bass Shaker
How would one wire 4 clark TST209s to a single dayton sa240?
I have no idea on as to how to wire in parallel/series and despite researching them the terms their concepts remain alien to me. If someone could perhaps provide a diagram and description on as to how the wiring would be done for 4 clarks to a single dayton sa240 I would be very greatful!
A series/parallel configuration would be indicated for your application. I've included a simple diagram for your convenience.

hot tub mounting
think one of these would shake a 5-7 person hot tub? or perhaps 2? havent decided on mounting locations yet.
It's doubtful that with the pumps, water and bubbles that you would feel the efffect. Some hot tubs have subwoofers, so you may just consider that.

How many of these units would I require to cover 3 couches? What size amp do I need to run them?
Are they better than the Aurora Base shakers and worth the added cost?
I would recommend two units per couch. Wire the units on each couch together in parallel. Wire each couch together in series. I would recommend the 240W plate amplifier linked below to power them.Please see the attached wiring diagram for correct connection.As far as quality, the Clark Synthesis transducers have more output and one of the TST209s is equivalent to four of the Aura Pro Bass Shakers.

Should I add 6dB @35 Hz boost?
I am powering two of the Clark TST209's (8 ohm load) using the SPA250 plate amp which has the ability to add +6 dB boost at 35 Hz. What is the recommendation? Turn on the boost or leave it off? Would the recommendation change if I go to four transducers (4 ohm load).
Try it, see if you like it! Can't see how it could hurt anything, its all up you and how well you are liking the effect of it.

how do i mount the Clark Synthesis TST209 Tactile Transducer?
Each transducer comes with a kit of parts that allow you to mount it directly to the wooden frame of a sofa about 3 different ways. All you need is a drill and a screwdriver really, it's pretty simple. You'll have to decide if you want to mount the transducers underneath your soft (requiring you to get higher legs or isolators to get the 4" height boost you'll need for clearance) or mount them INSIDE your soft by removing the staples and felt and finding an adequate space to mount them inside the frame. Frankly, the latter was easier for me as most couches have plenty of "empty space" inside them. Just note you need to mount the transducer so it sits horizontal (like a plate in your lap) and not vertical (like a steering wheel). They should not be mounted vertically. Good luck!

How would I wire 4 chairs in a row using the SA240 240W Sub Amp?
WIRE 2 IN SERIES 4+4 OHM AND THE OTHER 2 THE SAME WAY THEN TIE THE BRANCHES + TO + AND HOOK TO THE AMP POSITIVE AND THE BRANCHES GROUNDS TO THE AMP SPEAKER GROUND FOR A SUMMED LOAD OF 4 OHMS TO THE AMP AND ADJUST GAIN . BE CAREFUL THIS SUB AMP IS VERY POWERFUL AND THESE ARE NOT SUB WOOFERS, SO THE END MAY DISAPPOINT YOU UNLESS YOU HAVE A MASSIVE SYSTEM TO BACK THESE UP WITH MID BASS AND HIGH FREQUENCY FOR FULL THEATER EFFECT ABOVE 80 HZ [VERY GOOD FOR BACK MASSAGE THOUGH] I HAVE DUAL 18'S IN MY HOME AND 2- 10'S, 1 -12 IN MY CAR[ ALL TACTILE TRANSDUCERS DON'T IMPRESS ME MUCH] ONE GOOD SUB WOOFER WITH THIS AMP WILL IMPRESS YOU AND CLOSE PROXIMITY TO THE COUCH WILL IMPRESS YOU WITH THE LOW END EXTENSION AND NO RESONATING DISTORTION FROM FURNITURE TRYING TO BE A SUB SONIC SYSTEM
