    cheap upgrade *fix*

    Ok, we all know that feeling when you need a fix BAD, right? You just need to change something with your setup -- anything!

    Well, Being the cheap bastard that I am , I just bought two Aura Bass Shakers for $8.95 a piece to try and satisfy this urge

    Now I just need something to power them with. The specs state they are 20w RMS and 30w Max.

    So what kind of advice can you guys give me for a cheap amp that pushes 30w x2 at 4-Ohms ?

    Thanks,

    Thomas

    Oh, BTW: here's the link to the shakers:

    I also just picked up a set locally for about the same price and mounted them to the Futon this weekend. I'm currently using a single side of my Hafler power amp to push them which is serious overkill but for now its all I have. I'm going to keep an eye open in the pawn shops etc for an old stereo amp or receiver etc to use on them. I'd like it to have a remote so I could control the shake and turn them on or off depending on the mood or material etc.

      Wish me luck

      Thomas.

          Well, no Adcom 535 for me --- Lex must have beat me to it! d**n you lex!

          I&#39;ll keep checking back at the pawn shops and hopefully I can find something decent before the transducers arrive, otherwise HT Store here I come --- and we all know how dangerous that can be.

          Thomas.

                Stoopalini,
                Sorry that you missed out on the amp. It was a great deal. In this game more will come along!
