It looks like the Quake is gaining in popularity over the more well known Buttkickers.
Main Quake 10b thread is here:
Earthquake Sound Q10B tactile sound unit and XJ600R amp
Hello and yes im proud to join your small club with the recent purchase of the awesome Quake 10b
I've been a home cinema enthusiast for over 15 years and have in the past heard of "shakers" but never really thought they were more then a gimmick and most of the press I read looked to agree with me. I started to look again a few weeks back at "shakers" and found some more positive reviews plus m4rky_m4kt posts and thought im going to take the plunge and give these ago! At first I looked at the buttekickers but they appear too big and power hungry for what I wanted which brought me to the quake. So I ordered one with 4 isolating feet from shakercentre. I fitted the quake using the L bracket inside my two seater couch and used my old Arcam Alpha 6 to power. My Arcam is rated at 50WRMS 4-16ohms so was a bit worried it wouldn't be powerful enough but I needn't have worried it more then does the job.
Just to give you a quick idea of my set-up im running a 9.2 system using an Onkyo 1007 with Pioneer BDP LX52 80" motorised projection screen and a Sanyo Z2000 all speakers are Tannoy Eyris apart from the two subs which are Rel Quake (im obviously a fan of the name quake). So using a Y cable one of my sub outs was connected to my Arcam I put on Wall E and sat down with my wife. OH MY GOD
we played the EVE arriving scene it nearly chucked both of us off the couch and I only had my Arcam set just over half way.
I have had the quake for 4 days now and have tuned the system down to a more body freindly setting and I just love it im amazed at how subtle and at yet how violent this thing can be
At the moment its being feed anything below 80hz which doesn't appear to be a problem I have had no rumbles with voices ect. Im sure in time I will purchase an inline crossover please let me know if anyone can recommend one?
I really cant see myself going back to having a home cinema without one of these things
