Bass shakers turn SFX in movies and games into vibrations you can feel. Many people ask: why is that important?
Because, as most of us home theater geeks know, we experience sound physically.
In the real world, the low rumble of an plane, the explosion of fireworks, the beating of a heart are felt in our flesh and bones. And who among us has not felt it at concerts, when the deep bass of the drum seems to pound inside your own ribcage.
Bass shakers make your home theater literally come to life: they give reality to movies, games and music. Every gunshot, every engine rev, every explosion: a shaker makes you feel as if you are inside the action.
I always felt there was 'something missing' in my home theater. I always craved - more - and didn't know what it was.
When I finally discovered bass shakers, they pushed my home theater experiences into the three-dimensional texturized reality I'd been craving. Someone once told me I experience the world kinaesthetically (through touch). Often, the kinaesthetic sense is overlooked in favour of the visual and aural. But maybe you're like me: you like to feel the world, through touch, action and immersion. If so, the bass shaker is the answer.
So that's all from me! Thanks for finding my site: feel free to explore and share your love of the best home theater gadget around.
