    Hi

    I once saw an article about these little devices, similar to a sub that you can attach to the underside of your sofa...
    Then during an action movie you get the full wellie through your under carriage?
    If you know what these things are...would you also happen to know a price and where to get them from?? :)

    Yeah i saw one that was setup as a vest that you could connect to a pc/console/amp and it would translate the action on screen to something you could feel. Not to much fun in Jackie Chan/Jet Li films :eek: You would end up black and blue :rotfl:

    Yeah (GTV)Chris just forget about them and buy a SVS:devil:

    They're 'tactile transducers' I bought one of the Aura Interactor vests for about £10 and took out the tactile unit to bolt to my chair. It was OK but nothing that great. I now have a Crowson TES 100 that's infinitely better and gives the precise feeling to effects that no sub can compare to. Yes not even an SVS. The Crowson goes down to 1hz supposedly.

    Other 'pro' models are the Buttkicker and the Clark Synthesis. Aura pro are available in the US or CPC/Farnell do some Monacor Bass Rockers that look very similar.

    A UK google will find prices for most of them, the Bass Rockers are by far the cheapest about £30 or into the 100's for the others. You'll also need an amp to power them.

    With wooden floors you certainly don't need tactile transducers! :devil:

    Or rather: With my wooden floors you certainly don't need tactile transducers. :blush:
