Please note that you can't simply wire them together in series or parallel. Connecting any more than 2 would likely cause damage to your amplifier. (depending on the impedance of the bass shaker 4 ohms, 8 ohms, etc.)

The Buttkicker brand recommends the following configuration for four buttkickers into one amp: Click here

As you can see, you need a combination of parallel and series connections to make sure the amp is "seeing" the correct load. I'd recommend purchasing three dedicated subwoofer amps (there are some good inexpensive ones at http://www.parts-express.com.

This will give you volume control over each set of four shakers at the amp itself. If you need control at each shaker, the only solution I know if is to use an impedance matching volume control.

Check Parts Express for those, too.

If this solved your problem, please rate it as FixYa. If not, let me know how else I can help you.

Good luck!

Replaced SD card now Shaker won't play


Hi Cathi!

Few things you need to know about Sansa Shaker and the SD card:
  1. The Sansa Shaker DOES NOT support SDHC memory cards. Only regular SD cards are supported.
  2. Maximum capacity for supported SD cards - 2GB!
  3. Any SD card which doesn't meet the requirement above might cause the problem you encounter. REPLACE the card with a supported one - SD card with up to 2GB in capacity.
  4. No software/data is stored or needed to be on the memory card - apart from your music files.
  5. MP3 file type is fully supported by Sansa Shaker.
Regards,
Pelu.

My shaker does not play all of the loaded songs.


I had the same problem. The songs that won't play are probably MP4 files and the shaker only plays MP3 files. You need to change the file format of the songs on the shaker to MP3 files. I downloaded "Media Coder" which was free and it converted all the songs on the shaker that wouldn't play to MP3 files and they play now. Google "Media Coder" and download the free program, it is very easy to use. I had the songs converted in about 2 minutes. Make sure the shaker is plugged into computer so that you can choose the files on the shaker to convert. Hope this helps.

The music has to be in MP3 format.

If you have copied CD's to your computer, you will need to change the settings in Windows Media Player to copy them as MP3's.

Windows Media Player>Tools>Settings>Rip Music (Copy Music)>Chane Rip Music as to MP3.

Delete all the songs you copied before from your computer and from the Shaker.

Copy the new songs back to the Shaker after you change the settings.





Best of Luck.
