Question about Audio Players & Recorders
I need to wire 12 bass shakers to my amp and control the output on each shaker
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.
