How To Build A Deep Bass System For $750

by Justin Thomas •

In this article I will describe how to build a high-fidelity, bass-intensive sound system for under $1000. The secret ingredient of the system is the use of┬átactile transducers. These transducers effectively eliminate the need for expensive woofers or subwoofers. It’s an efficient method of producing deep, high-fidelity bass for a fraction of the usual cost.┬áMany of the ideas presented here …


MetaOptimal Bass: Tactile Transducers

by Justin Thomas •

You may have heard of subwoofers, which provide very low-level bass frequencies. Tactile transducer go beyond that range because they vibrate solid objects rather than air. The Buttkicker uses a “suspended magnetic system” to reproduce soundwaves that are not air dependent, and can reproduce frequencies down to 5HZ (below human hearing). Variations of the Buttkicker are found in professional settings, …
