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.

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.

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

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

We recommend 3 inches of clearance.

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.

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

Clark Synthesis OEM customers can contact Clark Synthesis for support.

Parts Express provides TST209 technical support for their customers.  You can email Parts Express at Tech@Parts-Express.com.  Or you can call Parts Express at 1-800-338-0531

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

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.

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