Laughing and Screaming with Great Delight

It was a phone call.  A phone call I didn’t expect.  A phone call that, well, you will see… Some years ago, I had a neighbor named Kurt. Kurt was an interesting guy. He was an airline pilot, restored tube radios, and had built a simple home theater. In his basement was an alcove outside his son’s bedroom. Kurt mounted a [...]

Which TST for the Best Haptic Experience?

Are TSTs used in wellness products?2020-08-11T15:50:51-06:00

Yes!  Clark Synthesis TSTs are used in therapy chairs, therapy beds, massage tables, etc. If you do a Google search for Vibroacoustic, you will find many products that contain Clark Synthesis TSTs.

What are Tactile Sound Transducers (TSTs)?2020-08-11T15:50:28-06:00

Clark Synthesis Tactile Sound Transducers (TSTs) transform pure audio as electrical energy into pure audio as vibrational energy.  TSTs are much more than shakers.  Shakers only make things shake.  TSTs faithfully reproduce audio signals bringing new levels of realism and enjoyment to VR spaces, Home Theaters, Simulators, Movie Theaters, etc.

Can I mix different TSTs?2020-08-11T15:49:57-06:00

Yes. Be sure to wire the TSTs in-phase so they all work together.

Does the TST require ventilation?2020-08-11T15:49:30-06:00

Ventilation is not always required. However, warmer climates and environments may require ventilation. Contact Clark Synthesis for specific recommendations.

What clearance do you recommend for mounting the TST?2020-08-11T15:49:02-06:00

We recommend 3 inches of clearance.

The amplifier is located far away from the TST. What size wire should I use?2020-08-11T15:48:29-06:00

We recommend 16 gauge wire for up to 50 feet of length; 14 gauge wire for 50 feet to 150 feet; 12 gauge for distanced greater than 150 feet.

What does it mean to wire TSTs in-phase?2020-08-11T14:45:10-06:00

This means both TSTs are wired the same way to the amplifier.

What is Tactile Sound?2020-08-11T14:27:50-06:00

Tactile Sound is pure audio that is felt through touch and is heard through bone conduction.

What amplifier should I use with the TST?2020-08-11T14:27:33-06:00

We recommend a 125 watt amplifier at 4 ohms for the TST239 and a 150 watt amplifier at 4 ohms for the three-series and four-series TSTs.

Which TSTs can I use in a dirty environment?2020-08-11T14:27:01-06:00

We recommend the TST329 Gold TST for dirty environments. We recommend the AW339 for dirty environments that may be extremely damp.
