TST429 Platinum Transducer

The TST429 Platinum Professional Transducer is the most
powerful audio transducer on the market today. Available
only from Clark Synthesis, the TST429 provides the ultimate
performance and output of full-fidelity, full-frequency
sound with a frequency response from 5hz to 17kHz. This
premium transducer is designed to meet the demands of
audio applications such as high-end home theater furniture,
theater risers and platforms, floors (including dance floors),
simulators, gaming systems, and ProSound equipment.

The TST429 Platinum Professional Transducer is the most powerful audio transducer on the market today. Available only from Clark Synthesis, the TST429 provides the ultimate performance and output of full-fidelity, full-frequency sound with a frequency response from 5hz to 17kHz. This premium transducer is designed to meet the demands of audio applications such as high-end home theater furniture, theater risers and platforms, floors (including dance floors), simulators, gaming systems, and ProSound equipment.

Originally developed for military and commercial training simulators, Full Contact Audio® transducers were specifically designed to transfer sounds like gunshots and explosions into a tactile experience that can be felt as well as heard. The enhanced neodymium magnetic structure of a Platinum Transducer produces approximately twice the output of the popular TST329 Gold Professional Transducer. The extended frequency response and superior fidelity adds a new level of realism to every experience.

The TST429 Platinum requires an amplifier for operation. Clark Synthesis recommends an amplifier
stable at 4 ohms that can deliver 125-150 watts @ 4 ohms (per transducer).

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 [...]

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.

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.
