Sonic Immersion VT200 IBEAM Vibro Tactile Transducer Bass Shaker
Sonic Immersion VT200 IBEAM Vibro Tactile Transducer Bass Shaker is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent subwoofer replacementI recently sold my Velodyne DD-15 subwoofer as I felt it wasn't adding much to the listening experience in my main floor stereo system, which includes Zu Audio Omen Def speakers. But wife and I did sometimes miss the deep floor shaking bass. Then came across the Ibeam unit while browsing the Parts Express website, so decided to order one and give it a try. I mounted it to the underside of the floor beneath our normal seating positions, luckily that part of the basement is unfinished so was able to get access to the underside of the main floor.Integration into my system was a breeze, given the fact that I have an Emotiva XSP-1 preamp with lots of outputs and an Anthem MCA-50 with only two of the five amps used. Also happened to have a dbx 131 equalizer so didn't have to fiddle with the XSP-1's bass management controls which are very difficult to use on that unit. The dbx 131 also provides a gain control for the IBEAM and also eq controls if I decide to experiment with those. Connected it all up with a couple of spare XLR cables and a length of 12 gauge speaker wire down through the floor the IBEAM was up and running.After using the unit for a few weeks I've concluded that its one of the best purchases I've ever made in my 40+ years of being interested in audio. Bass experience is way better than I had with the DD-15, or even the SVS PB-13 Ultra that I brought up from our basement theater system a couple of times. Extremely clean and articulate bass effect, unhindered by room acoustic effects that plague subwoofers. No more sore heads when the bass is turned up to floor shaking levels.Now planning to add one to the seating riser platform in our basement 5.1 theater system where even the PB13 Ultra is unable to transmit vibration through the concrete floor.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best Tactile unit out thereI have used practically every tactile unit out in the market including Clark Synthesis, Aura Bass, Buttkicker and Crowson. It has the fastest transient response of all of them. I am a Pro Audio Engineer who has used these units to suplement the tactile aspect missing in In Ear Monitors. These by far are the most responsive, utterly earth-shaking capable of enormous vibratory transfer. It is not sluggish like a buttkicker, all oohmp and no detail, and it can handle more and produce more than a Clark Synthesis ( Raychem polyswitch protector clicks in way too soon.)It is quite expensive but sure worth it per pound force moved.

What amp would you recommend for this sub? 

Asked by: Ram Jr
This transducer is only designed to vibrate and not produce audible low frequencies like a subwoofer. With that in mind, any 100 watt subwoofer plate amplifier will work fine, I usually recommend our Dayton SA100.

Can the IBEAM be installed with 2 Aura Pro Bass Shaker using a Dayton Audio SPA250 Sub Amp? If so, how would I go about it?

Asked by: ALBRUC1
The only way to wire these three things together on one amplifier would be in series. this would raise the impedance to 12 ohms limiting the amount of output power you will get. You would be much farther ahead having one amp on both bass shakers and a separate amp on the I-Beam.

Will this work well in a mobile application?

I have a 2004 Chevy standard cab pickup. There is no room for a subwoofer. How well would this work if I securely mounted it to the back wall of the cab? I'd like to use the HP/LP functionality of my head unit to separate the audio and route the low frequencies to this device. Your thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
Asked by: Richard Dillon
Sounds good to me! If you have any loose parts in the truck, this will tell you where they are. Mounting on the back wall of your cab is exactly how these work. They make whatever you mount them to--a loudspeaker. An enclosed cab, will shake.

Asked by: Didier

Hi, Would 1 SonicImmersion transducer per 4 theatre chair set be enough?

Asked by: Dino7904
"Enough" is a very subjective term in cases such as this. It may be enough to live up to your expectations, and it may not. There are too many variables to say with any degree of confidence. I would encourage you to try it, but you'll want to be certain that the chairs are all connected in a very solid fashion, and you'd want to make sure that this unit is attached securely to the supporting framework of said chairs, at or near the center.
