I think it I mounted this heavy thing like that, the aluminum mounting points of the transducer would snap! I definitely don't need any more force or vibes than it's putting out how it's mounted. This riug isn't super lightweight but it's probably still a lot lighter than yours.

Maybe if I took that plate and mounted that with one end hanging off to the side and then mounted the transducer to that it would be ok structurally. Actually this thing has a lot more "low end" low frequency vibes than the two smaller bass shakers which makes sense.

Almost like if you had a subwoofer with a very low crossover point and you didn't hear any mid bass but tons of low bass. Sometimes driving a car in GT7 I get insane low frequency vibes that totally drown out any higher vibes. Or else they are overpowering. It's cool but I think i want to hook up a smaller bass shaker so it kind of evens out the effect more.

It's like having two 15" woofers in your trunk instead of four 8" woofers for example. The very low vibes are almost overpowering the higher ones sometimes. Maybe I could hook up an inline EQ just for the BST-300EX and tone down the very low frequency vibes if running off of LFE sub-out only. Maybe in Simhub you can control that kind of thing, not sure.

But I think I'm going to install the other Aurasound transducers to "fill out" the vibes more near the 80hz zone. Maybe I can put one under the pedals and one near the rear of rig somehow. Then I can balance them with gain on the separate amps I'll be running. It's pretty crazy how it is now, but only in some cars.

Yeah you'll get 100% control with Simhub over the frequency. Since you're running the full frequency the AVR outputs for LFE you will get the ultra low bass output and yes it depends on the car you're driving AND the track you are on. If thats the case you would be safe to assume that those frequencies would snap bass shaker mounts. But with Simhub you tune each effect only at a certain frequency and you can tailor the amount of output you receive so there's no over excursion on bass output.

I tried the method you were talking about cantilevering the mounting plate but with aluminum being so rigid it didn't have much difference than mounting centered on the 8020. For me it was a matter of lowering the output of the amp vs driving the amp harder to achieve the sensation I needed. Mounting centered I was about 80% volume and mounting on 2 posts cantilevered I'm about 35% volume with lower perceived frequency pulsation if that makes sense. Basically flicking a doorstop while holding the base with one hand or flicking it without holding it and letting it vibrate freely is the only way I can describe the difference.

Anyway you have FAR more output than you will ever need with the 300 watt shaker. It might find its way to your couch in your home theater.
