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.

To simplify installation on flat surfaces our Surface Mount Ring Kit (300-3880) allows you to mount the PUCK transducer without the need for a mounting hole.

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
Dayton Audio TT25-16 PUCK Tactile Transducer Mini Bass Shaker 16 Ohm is rated 4.6667 out of 5 by 15.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply AWESOMEI've had 8 of these for 2 years, and smile every time there's an explosion or earthquake in a movie - these are simply the BEST addition to a home theater (or audio room) you can get for so little - better than a $1000 subwoofer.Why? They add the sensation of a huge, high-power subwoofer for a fraction of the price. You don't realize how much of the "feel" of a big sub is just the shaking of the floor until you use these - and shake the floor (and you) *directly*. Now I can actually run the volume lower, yet have more impact, without disturbing others as much or sacrificing my ears.I actually installed 2 of the large Clark Synthesis units on a sofa, but 8 of these on a dual-reclining loveseat (wiring series & parallel to balance the load, and ensuring polarity so the motion was in-phase) because they were the only ones that fit in the small spaces between the mechanisms. When I turned them on, I was *amazed* how well they worked - even better than the ones on the sofa! (one could argue it has something to do with the construction of the frames, which is certainly possible - but the sensation is clearly better in the loveseat with 8 of these little guys).These are perfect for apartment & condo dwellers, in that you can get the impact without annoying the neighbors (some rumble will transmit through the floor, but you could add isolation pads). The also take up no floor space, as opposed to a big subwoofer.They also clean up the bass, in that you don't have to over-strive for bass with your regular speakers - these basically pick up that very deep bottom end, so you don't have to over-achieve in the low bass with your speakers.BTW, my reference point is a Denon receiver, Adcom 200w amp, Polk mains & surrounds, and a killer Adire Audio XBL 10" powered sub. (previous speakers were dual-12" woofers - i.e. 4 in all - on the 200w Adcom - so I do know a little about bass....) The shakers (and sub) are crossed over at 80Hz.If I ever have to re-build my HT, I would focus my attention on these plus better midrange & treble speakers, rather than trying to find speakers with the biggest, baddest woofers on the market - i.e. aim for decent bass, but really good mids & highs, and leave the really low bass to these shakers. For $100-150 (4 + amp), these will have a MUCH bigger impact than the difference between a $500 subwoofer and a $1000 sub.NOTE: since there was very little wood in the recliners, and no clear 4" of space anywhere on that wood, I cut simple mounts for these out of 1" board (basically, a square with a big hole in the center, and a groove for the wire) then mounted the shakers in these, and attached these mounts with 2 screws on one edge - so they are hanging 1/2 off the edge of the seat frame (see PICS). Maybe that has something to do with how much they shake the loveseat - all I know is it WORKS.

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).

How it workworks

Asked by: juans
In the PUCK, a stationary voice coil is immersed in a magnetic field from a magnet assembly similar to that found in a typical loudspeaker driver. The magnet assembly is attached to a compliant suspension and provides the movable weight. As a signal is applied, the magnet assembly vibrates, and the reaction force from that vibration is what provides the shaking force.

My H/Theater is powered by a Pioneer A/V Receiver @ 100 W per channel (7.1) this covers all my system needs, my sub is a powered unit, can I use an older SONY A/V 75W per channel I have to power these in lieu of springing for another amp to drive them ?

Asked by: Thump It
I see no reason this won't work, as long as you maintain a safe load for each of the output channels of the amplifier.

is there a simple low pass filter that we can build for this?  Plan to use two in parallel for a 4-ohm impedance.

Asked by: liunam
This tactile transducer can be low-passed just as easily as any other type of speaker driver or exciter. If you use a small subwoofer plate amplifier to drive these (such as SA25 or SA70) then that amp will already provide an adjustable crossover, plus independently adjustable level. If you are trying to drive these with a conventional amplifier, the simplest low pass filter for your application would be a single inductor in series with the input to the pair of bass shakers. Using an online calculator, crossover modeling software, or simple equations found in speaker design books, you can determine the appropriate size of the low pass inductor for your speaker load and desired corner frequency. Once you have a target inductor value in mind, you can deviate by +/-10% in choosing a standard catalog inductor value to give approximately the same results. Best of luck.
