Dayton Audio BST-1 High Power Pro Tactile Bass Shaker 50 Watts
The human ear has the ability to hear a wide range of sounds, however, some sound is simply too low to hear and must be felt through the body. Feeling this extremely low frequency sound adds a new dimension to your listening, gaming, and movie experiences.
With a Dayton Audio BST-1 Bass Shaker installed in your home or auto sound system, you’ll feel those low bass notes or the thundering weight of a dinosaur’s foot slamming against the ground as it approaches. Your favorite action movies will come to life as you feel the cannon blasts and explosions impacting your body! If you’re into die-hard gaming the BST-1 Bass Shaker is the perfect addition to your gaming chair or couch! The power and impact of a football tackle puts you on the field and in the game! Feel the kick of your proton gun as it fires against the enemy!
Unlike subwoofers, the BST-1 Bass Shaker will not overload your listening area, and the perceived loudness of the BST-1 Bass Shaker improves listening at lower sound volumes. The engineers at Dayton Audio designed the BST-1 Bass Shaker to reproduce accurate, tactile sensations from your music and movie sound tracks. When a BST-1 Bass Shaker is installed on a resonant surface, it increases the portion of tactile sound as being "felt" beyond what is normally produced by subwoofers and ordinary speakers. Conventional subwoofers are traditionally considered optimized when you can feel rather than hear the bass. By using a BST-1 Bass Shaker in your system, this goal becomes easier to achieve -- enabling the subwoofer to perform at a more natural sound level.
A specially formulated nylon/fiber spider and the selection of quality hardware components allow the BST-1's internal motor structure to not only outperform the competition but increase the product lifespan. Simply put, with a Dayton Audio BST-1 Bass Shaker you can count on years and years' worth of amazing blasts, shakes, rolls, rattles, rumbles, thumps, bangs, and bumps!
Connecting a Single BST-1 Dayton Audio Bass Shaker
The impedance of the BST-1 Bass Shaker is 4 ohms. When used in a single unit configuration it must be hooked up to an amplifier that is either stereo or bridged mono, the same way you would connect a subwoofer.
Please consult the amplifier manual for details regarding the impedance rating of your amplifier.
Two or four Dayton Audio BST-1 Bass Shakers can be used in situations where more bass energy is desired or in larger applications. Connecting two in Series configuration will raise the impedance to 8 ohms, connecting two in Parallel will lower the impedance to 2 ohms, and wiring four BST-1 Bass Shakers in Series-Parallel will keep the overall impedance to 4 ohms. Again, always consult your amplifier’s owners manual to verify it has the power capability that produce the wattage safely at various impedances.
WARNING: Do NOT exceed 50 watts RMS per Bass Shaker multiplied by the number of Shakers (example: 50 x 4 = 200 Watts RMS)
HOME – Mounting the Bass Shaker to chairs or couches that are not fixed to the floor will provide the greatest effects. The Bass Shaker's energy will impact the user’s body rather than travel through the furniture and disperse the energy into the floor. Isolating the furniture from the floor is highly recommended by using pads or rubber feet. Find a solid mounting area for your Bass Shaker(s) underneath and/or on the rear of the furniture’s construction. Use four wood screws or stingers to mount the Bass Shaker to the structure. Should no solid mount exist it is recommended that one be constructed using hardwood or plywood. Try to avoid fabric or padding coming into contact with the Bass Shaker. It is important the Bass Shaker makes full contact with a solid flat surface. Recommended wire gauge is 14-16 AWG speaker wire.
AUTO – Mounting the Bass Shaker under the seats is highly recommended rather than on the seat itself. Move (or remove) your seat forward as far as possible, and identify the spot under the seat that vibrates the most by knocking on the flooring using a rubber mallet or soft hammer. Again, ensuring the Bass Shaker comes into full contact with the floor surface is critical to the performance of the Bass Shaker. Wiring in advance of the installation is recommended. Ensure your wire is without kinks or bends and that no bare wire is touching metal. Use four steel screws or stingers to mount the Bass Shaker to the floor of your vehicle. Recommended wire gauge is 14-16 AWG speaker wire.
WARNING: Always check under carpeted locations and recheck the mounting area so as to not cut or drill into any existing electrical wiring, airbag sensors, hydraulics, brakes, gas, or fuel lines.
ADDITIONAL NOTES AND SUGGESTIONS:
80 Hz or under low pass crossover suggested to reduce the possibility of high frequency sounds
Recommended Amplifiers: SMLS SA-36A for single Bass Shakers, Dayton Audio APA150 or Dayton Audio SPA250 for 2 - 4 Bass Shaker installations. For larger installations we recommend the Dayton Audio SPA1000 or SA1000.
(Simracing and video game)
Nice vibration. You get the peak around 30-45hz.
I ordered 6, 2 of them were broken from inside but soundimports anwser was 2 new units shipped for replacement 2 day later (my email for the two broken products was one day before Christmas) . Very very good customer service.

Bought one of these for my sim rig and it’s great. Bigger than I was expecting. Shipping to the UK from soundimports was fast 2 days and no issues with import tax as all taxes are included in the price you see on the website. This is appreciated I hate sites that tempt you in with cheap prices only to add all the taxes at checkout, good job soundimports! I’m sure I’ll be back.

Great stuff! I built a budget test version of a couch shaker, pairing two of these with an AK170 mini amp and the 2x20W supplied power is enough to make my couch vibrate like a massage chair, extending the immersion while watching movies and gaming just as I expected it would! Definitely recommend it for those who don't have a subwoofer and also for those who do.

For what you pay it delivers a good experience,only 50 watts but shakes more than enough, can see my wardrobe mirrors blurr out at 20hz sound tone, if you mount it well you will get the full response to 10hz, now I have two of these attached to a wheel chair, I'm hearing rattles everywhere in the room, so how good it will be to you depends on how well you mount them, sometimes reverse polarity shakes more, or not screwing it too tightly can improve frequency response,how thick the chair is,the thicker the more it absorbs higher frequencies, overall good product, can't go wrong with 2x of these for the the price of one aura shaker...

Absolutely brilliant. I was sceptical at first whether this would have the effect I was after, but I can safely say that I am blown away, but I expected nothing less from Dayton Audio!
I've attached one of these to the front-underside of my gaming chair, and got some heavy duty switches to switch between my subwoofer and the shaker, and honestly.... I'm almost preferring the shaker just because of how DIRECT it feels. You feel absolutely everything; every drum beat, every bass note, every intricate bit of low end rumble that you can't even feel with subwoofers without having absolutely gigantic ones in a home theatre.
This is obviously not for "sound" quality, but if you're looking for something to add a sense of depth to your current setup, or are looking for something to get more immersed in content/games with headphones on, this is by far the best thing you can get outside of a VR headset and one of those body-mounted tactile transducers.
I will likely get a second one of these at some point to experiment with stereo shakers.
Oh, before I close off this review, I must mention that this device rapidly trails off in the mid-upper bass region, even without an LPF. Infrasonics will absolutely kick your but, but I guess the mass is so great that stuff up at 80Hz and beyond just can't move fast enough to generate the same effective amplitude, so kick transients will suffer. Just keep that in mind!

Heb een grote race simulator waar ik ervaring heb met de originele Buttkickers en een ander bekend merk. Deze Dayton wel eens op Amerikaanse forums tegen gekomen maar nooit eerder gekocht. en dat had ik véél eerder moeten doen. zijn groter dan ik dacht, zuiverder en sterker dan ik dacht en veel goedkoper dan zijn concurrenten.

Mijn beste thuisbioscoop uitbreiding sinds jaren. Filmkijken wordt echt een belevenis met bass shakers. Ik had ze jaren eerder moeten aanschaffen!.

Dese bassshaker set zware tonen super krachtig om in trillingen zonder enig geluid! Ik zou wel 2 of 3 shaker gebruiken voor een 4 zitbank

Bought a pair of these for my racing aim set up driven by simhub, not disappointed at all! They are strong but manageable and don't seem to get too hot at all.
Word of warning they are heavy / deep so make sure you think about how to mount them but they work great.

I'm using it with an amplifier a bit lower than what it needs in watt (i'm around 30-40watt), so keep that in mind before reading below.
Nice product, pretty powerfull, shipping is fast (one week to go near Paris).
Watchout having a special sub amplifier or something to highcut(lowpass) higher frequency for it or you will hear your whole music through it.
+ works REAL good in low frequency from 50hz to 10-15hz, real jetpack !!
- at higher frequency (from 70hz and uper) it loose his punch a bit too much for my opinion like it's not shaking at all but just vibrating (it may come from tha lack of power).
For movies it's perfect
to work music, it's "good enough" it's not that precise but will help for dynamic & compression work
(dubstep&techno producer will love it)

Ik gebruik de twee BST-1 Bass Shakers voor de feedback van een virtuele flipperkast. Je voelt nu echt de pinball rollen en stuiteren! Ook de flippers en bumpers van de virtuele pinball tafels "voelen" als echt! ik heb overigens naast deze Bass shakers ook nog vier Dayton DEAX58FP ingebouwd.

Deze shaker gebruik ik voor film kijken en muziek luisteren. Hij geeft veel bass tonen door als je hem gewoon op de vloer legt met een gewicht er op. Een soort subwoofer dus. Een hele stevige constructie en kan bijna niet kapot. Nog één ding de aansluitingen MAG je niet draaien want dan maak je sluiting binnen in. Ik heb die van mij open moeten maken en gerepareerd. Zal zeker weer eentje kopen

Dit is een fantastisch product het laat je veel meer genieten van films en muziek.
Maar let op je maakt de buurman hartstikke gek. Ik had deze op de grond liggen en kreeg bijna een perfecte bass. Nu kan je dus de bass luisteren en voelen.
