Clark Synthesis TST239 Silver Tactile Transducer Bass Shaker
Clark Synthesis TST239 Silver Tactile Transducer Bass Shaker is rated 4.5294 out of 5 by 17.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does its job with styleDefinitely a more elegant and sonically versatile solution than similar products at this price range. Only frustration was that the speaker wire included was a little bit too short, but I guess if you're installing something like this you're expected to be able to mod speaker wires as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It worksIf you mount it on the right spot in your couch, it definitely works! So much quieter than my buttkicker and at least as much tactile force, so I´m impressed!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I should have done this years ago!This is my first transducer, so I have nothing to compare it to,but this TST239 made my setup come to LIVE.I use the class D amp section from a JBL northridge e150p sub witch is rated at 150W rms / 250W peak at 4ohms.This is a pretty good match, but I think a slightly lighter amp would do fine also. The gain never goes past 50%.The transducer is mounted to a very solid piece of wood, witch is connected to the wooden frame of the 2 seater couch with glue and screws.The couch now rests on almost 2 inches of rubber.I used 2 washing machine vibration dampers for each corner.It works very, very well with movies, you really feel the bass,without getting complaints from the neighbours.This is very important for me, I already have a decent sub but I can never crank it up.Now it really seems like a high-end sub is shaking the room, but when you get off the couch 80% of the bass is gone!With music it's a bit artificial, but really not bad.I think this could be improved a bit if I took more time to play with the settings, but I rarely just sit down and listen to music.I also used it with my xbox360, and this also worked very good. I tried Forza Motorsport 4 and Mass effect, and with both games it really added an extra dimension.Setting up the transducer, and tuning it the right way is not real easy in my opinion.I use it with the main speakers and sub, but also with my headphones, witch made it a bit difficult.And once everything works you'll have play with all your settings for a while to get it right.I use a headphones amp witch has a 3 band equalizer to push the bass frequency up a bit when I use the TST239 with my headphones. This works pretty good IMO.I'd also like to compliment Parts Express, this was my first purchase here (I'm from the Netherlands) but it won't be my last.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clark Synthesis TST239 Silver TransducerAfter owning the Aura Pro shakers for about 6-7 years and thinking these were the best investment into my home theater. I saw these and figured I would give it a try. One of these is more power full than 2 Aura pro's. I mounted it to a board under my couch that spans the whole frame and contacts every cross piece(you want to use solid wood for this that way you loose nothing). This way it does not mater where you are sitting on the couch, everyone gets the same result. You will never watch a movie the same way again. If you are like me you might find yourself renting movies just based on sound.Also if you live in an apartment or some where, where you can't crank up your movies this is a must. With this transducer you get all that felt bass with out maxing out your sub woofer. Don't get me wrong these will never replace a sub woofer they just make your sub that much better.I also got the isolation feet. The ones for $6.95 they are all you need and do a wonderful job.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is the guiltiest of pleasures!The product works as advertised, and then some! Still, nothing can prepare you! :) There is no Package or Kit, so here's what I ordered from Parts Express in one shot that allowed me to setup in 10 minutes. I'd have preferred a rack amp but it was out of stock and more money as well. The plate amp just sits in a box under the sofa so it doesn't add clutter. Drilling your seat frame is hardest part of setup. I might have burned the transducer experimenting with an Ice-T track and the gain knob on the SA240, but PE didn't hesitate to replace the unit. Maybe the 240 is overkill? I can only imagine the output of TST429.Clark Synthesis TST239 Silver Transducer Part #: 300-863; Dayton Audio SA240 240W Subwoofer Amplifier Part #: 300-804; Dayton Audio SW-25 Subwoofer Cable 25 ft.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from a must haveI connected this tactile transducer to a piece of 3/4" solid oak (no MDF, we don't want to dampen sound) that is screwed into the bracing on the bottom of my couch (i used the t-mount method described in the Clark manual).I decided to go with the SA100 to power this and it is JUST enough power for this transducer. Too bad Dayton doesn't have a 150 watt, 4Ohm stable plate amplifier. If using Dayton plate amps, be sure to have at least one RCA Y-adapter as the Dayton plate amps do not have an LFE input. So the LFE RCA coming from the receiver needs to be split into two RCA plugs for the low level RCA inputs on the plate amp.The Silver from Clark is plenty responsive for music - I am able to feel the bass line and the punch of a kick drum without things getting confused/muddled/lost. I suppose this is why many drummers choose the Clark line of transducers for the drum throne... But this is definitely not a one-note horse!It RUMBLES and puts out great lb/ft, but the "clarity" is equally amazing - albeit, you have to dial in the settings just right so voices with low-end don't make their way to your nether regions!As for HT applications - this is a MUST HAVE to have an all-around theater. I cannot imagine a proper home theater without tactile transducers; while some subs out there can really shake you, just think of the SPL levels needed to reproduce what tactile transducers can.Isolation mounts for the furniture feet are definitely needed! I created my own out of neoprene sheets 1" thick, stacked on each other to give about a 2" rise from the floor (including compression from the weight of the couch)... Teeth-rattling bass when sitting down but nothing when not in contact with my couch!Nonetheless, I am placing an order for the Clark furniture isolation feet - why spend thousands of dollars on a home theater and cheap-out on something that will keep more bass where I want it?

Clark Synthesis TST239 Silver Tactile Transducer Bass Shaker

I have all the cables of my 7.1 running under the floor. How can I hook up the transducer using existing (loudspeaker) cables? I have two 360° speakers (ELAC) - they were simply connected to the bipole inputs of the main speakers. Possible?

Is the Dayton Audio APA150 150-Watts Power Amplifier a good choice to run Clark Synthesis TST239 Silver Tactile Transducer ?

Asked by: ryan800
This amplifier will work but you will only be able to use one channel for one transducer since it is not 4 ohm stable in bridged mode. You could also use something like our SPA250 for a single transducer.

Hi.. I am from South Africa and new to the field of tactile transducers. Which is the better. The aura bass shaker or the Clark synthesis to 239? And will I be able to buy from you over the Internet????

Asked by: Johnybravo
Better is subjective so there is not one definitive answer. These both perform similar tasks but at very different price points and can be used to different applications as well, so it is almost comparing apples to oranges.

Can these be installed under a massage table? I already have a amplifier that I use with sound mat.

Asked by: ChristineWI
Sure! They offer an audible range from 35Hz to 17,000Hz but also provide a strong tactile force that will certainly be felt through the table.
