    Using mass drivers or “shakers” do a better job connected to a couch or a lazyboy. It’s a neat idea and a clever subwoofer design, but if you really wanted bass you would have a much larger proper subwoofer and add shakers to your seating. Also room setup is important, if your subwoofer is on a concrete floor in the basement then you are losing 1/2 the bass “feel” on a wooden floor it has a lot better vibration transmission.

    Its a neat design but what bugs me is this “rare” 16″ subwoofer, last I knew JL Audio made 15’s and 18’s but nothing between. 15.5″ Overall diameter makes this a 15″ nominal sub.
