Product Details

Dayton Audio TT25-16 PUCK Tactile Transducer Mini Bass Shaker 16 Ohm

The PUCK™ by Dayton Audio is an inexpensive, small tactile transducer otherwise known as a mini bass shaker that is intended to be used in Home Theater, Gaming, and Auto Sound applications. This mini bass shaker has the unique ability to transfer low frequency sound waves directly to the listener by mounting the PUCK™ to surface areas that a listener's body will come into contact with. Because the listener "feels" the low frequency, the volume of the overall sound can be kept to a minimum without sacrificing the audio quality.

The PUCK™ measures a mere 3-1/2" diameter and 1" depth, nearly identical in size to an ice hockey puck. The small depth and diameter of the PUCK™ mini bass shaker make it uniquely suited for tight spaces and unobtrusive applications. 4 layer Voice Coil with 1" aluminum former. Requires 6 #6 wood or sheet metal screws for surface mounting. Four PUCK™ transducers can be wired for Stereo 8 Ohm Right/Left 2 channel wiring or as a 4 Ohm 1 channel system.

Specifications: • Power handling: 15 watts RMS/30 watts max • Impedance: 16 ohms • Usable frequency response: 20 to 80 Hz • Fs: 40 Hz • Force peak: 30 lbs. per ft. total when used in 4 PUCK configuration • Dimensions: 3.5" dia. x 1" H • Cutout Dimension: 70 mm with 25 mm slot for wire pass through • Consult owners manual for cut-out template and wiring information.

Dayton Audio TT25-16 PUCK Tactile Transducer Mini Bass Shaker 16 Ohm is rated 4.6429 out of 5 by 14.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Packs a punch for the price!I wasn't sure what to expect from this, but overall I am pleased. It does play higher frequencies as well so make sure to have a low-pass filter!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice supplement for headphone musicI bought a pair of these to install on the recliner that is my stereo listening chair, because I currently must listen on headphones and I was missing the physical experience of sound that my subwoofers provide when I'm listening to speakers.While it's not the same as getting the air in the room moving, the pucks do provide a somewhat more complete listening experience. It doesn't take much power to get a useful effect: I'm using Dayton's 25 watt plate amp to power two 16 ohm pucks wired in parallel for an 8 ohm nominal load, and I don't turn the gain up very far (I've got the base cutoff turned to its lowest setting). At my typical listening level the pucks can barely be heard in the room, and are probably no louder than the leakage from the headphones (AKG's "semi-open-back" K240).I mounted the pucks in a nice rigid oak crossmember, then screwed the crossmember solidly to the recliner frame. The pucks are mounted out to the sides of the crossmember, to get them as close to the chair frame as possible. I didn't experiment with other mounting options, but this seems to do a good job of transferring vibration from the pucks to the chair, then to me!I marked down the score for "features" mostly because of a small manufacturing flaw in one of the drivers: It had globs of extra solder where the leads exit the case, large enough that I had to chisel out a relief for them (in addition to the required relief for the lead itself) to get the puck to mount flush. Not worth exchanging units, but not quite as nice quality control as I usually get in Dayton components.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from They have my vote!I, like many others, had rather low expectations. I purchased and installed eight pucks in my couch for an enhanced home theater experience. After installation, I demo'd them for an hour on various movies and songs. I was pleasantly surprised. They add a fun parameter to media that wasn't there before.They pack a punch that is large enough for me to know they are there, above and beyond the sub, but they certainly will not blow me out of the seat. They round out the sensory experience nicely.From the time I installed these, over two months ago, I have thoroughly enjoyed them. I don't think I could go back to being without some type of tactile feedback again. Also, I notice only a small difference between operating four pucks VS. all eight. Having eight is probably overkill, but they’re already purchased and installed so what the heck.One thing worth noting: The pucks produce a very muddy sound when not accompanied by a subwoofer. When the subwoofer is on, it is able to easily drown out the noise of the transducers so it is no longer noticeable. I was quickly annoyed with the pucks on by themselves. It would be nice if they didn't produce any sound or operated more quietly. This is the only negative I can find, which can be easily overlooked based on their price.I have also turned a few friends on to using the Dayton tactile transducers. I will note that one of them used the Dayton Audio DTA-100a T-Amp to power four of them at 8 ohms per channel. Each of the four pucks is mounted with MDF on the lower backrest portion of an electronically controlled reclining theater seat. See pictures of trial run mounting before the rest were installed. The T-Amp is advertised at 50 watts continuous power per channel, 2 channels total, @ 8 ohms. The T-Amp certainly works, but it has a hard time pushing the pucks. Before optimal puck power levels are reached, the amplifier distortion causes the pucks to produce very offensive noise and vibration. The pucks perform much better on a receiver or plate amp of equivalent "rated" power.Here are a few details of my setup for those who are curious.Puck Installation:Bottom side of 7' couchThree runs of 3/4" MDF spanned front to backRuns are braced in the centerThree pucks on the outside runsTwo pucks on the center runTwo wired in parallel for 8 ohm load on 4 channelsAmp Powering Pucks:Sansui55 watts RMS @ 8 ohmsGain set a hair past half-wayMy Preferred Puck Crossover Settings:Movies: 80 HzMusic: 60 HzAudio Setup:Receiver: Denon 2803Surrounds: Paradigm Titan V4Rear Surrounds: Paradigm Titan V4Center: Paradigm CC570 V3Fronts: Paradigm Studio 100 V3Sub: Paradigm PS12 V3

Rated 4 out of 5 by from awesome little thing!i bought 2 of these thing and installed them under my couch. they do their job very well and make watching lord of the rings all the better!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best investment for any sound system package!I was honestly skeptical about the reviews other people wrote about these pucks. I figured they're less than $10 a piece so it's not an expensive thing to try. After installing two of these on the underside of my office chair, omg! I love bass and these pucks are a great way to FEEL the bass, not just hear it. First person shooter games are awesome with these, especially if you use headphones. I promise you won't be dissapointed!The setup is very simple. You need a 60mm hole for each puck for installation. You can either buy an amp or simply use any old computer subwoofer. I used an Altec Lansing subwoofer enclosure I found in my closet and replaced the speaker wiring with the pucks' wiring. I ran them in parallel for a total of 8 ohms resistance (1/16 + 1/16).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect!Purchased to add another dimension to the gaming experiance and wired it in parallel with the powered subwoofer of my PC speakers, it has only 10 watt amp for its 4" 4ohm sub, being a 16ohm puck increased the total ohm draw on the amp, thus not effecting the sound quality. It is awesome, can't believe how much effect you get from such a small unit. screwed it to the bottom of the office chair (it has a wood bottom, with foam cushion on top). Well worth the experiment.

Dayton Audio TT25-16 PUCK Tactile Transducer Mini Bass Shaker 16 Ohm

Hey, just connected 4 of these to my old subwoofer with 100w rms, they work good except below 35hz, don't seem to get a lot of vibration below this line. Is this because I use the amplifier for my subwoofer?

Asked by: gplaurin
This could be due to a few factors. The subwoofer amplifier might have a high pass filter enabled to help protect the driver from over excursion which would cause the lack of vibration. Are you only using the amplifier from the subwoofer to power these or do you have them wired in parallel with the woofer in the box?

Can I connect two of these to the speaker outputs on the back of a Dayton Audio SUB-800 8 inch Subwoofer, or will the sub "eat up" all of the needed frequency?

Asked by: NMan
The SUB-800 will not power these pucks, the outputs on the amplifier are not powered. You will need a separate amplifier in order to power these.

This has already probably been answered, but I am not sure after reading through the Q&A. Can I run these off of the two unused channels on my receiver? I have a 7.1, but am only using as a 5.1 and can assign the other two. Would that work to power 4?

Asked by: ndurantz
These will work fine wired this way, I would not wire anymore than two on each channel unless you receiver can handle less than an 8 ohm load safely.

I'm using 4 shakers on a couch.  For best effect, should these be used in a mono configuration (all 4)  or is stereo okay too (2 pairs)?  I have the option of either using LFE out, or front L/R pre-outs with a 100Hz lowpass filter.  

Asked by: Paso
Most LFE effects are going to be mono and there will be no real difference if they are actually wired in stereo. I would recommend mono for any bass shaker/transducer install.

I will be wiring 4 of these, 2 per seat , in my car. If I use a mono sub amp and wire them so the amp sees 4 ohm how much power should the amp be putting out to run them?

Asked by: Lenny0612
I would recommend a small amp, anywhere between 50-100 watts RMS will be plenty.

If i took the speakers out of my X Rocker 4.1 gaming chair and replaced them with these pucks would they work ? as i only use headphones , the chairs 4.1 is wasted ...

Asked by: marc1964
Yes these will work in place of speakers if you are not looking to reproduce sound. If the chair is 4.1, these may be limited in output depending on where they are high passed to the subwoofer.
