How to configure a complete cockpit with tactile transducers

Recommended Posts

Hi All

I am going to build a DIY Cessna cockpit and want to integrate Simshaker for Aviators (SSA) with tactile feedback in MSFS.
I need som feedback on the setup and choise of tactile transducer, how many and where to place them.

My hardware (What I have already) :

1 pcs. Crown XLS 1002 stereo amplifier
(2x 550 Watt / 2 Ohm, 2x 350 Watt / 4 Ohm, 2x 215 Watt / 8 Ohm, bridged 1x 1100 Watt / 4 Ohm, bridged 1x 700 Watt / 8 Ohm)

2 pcs. of Earthquake MQB-1 mini quake
(300 watts RMS, 15Hz – 100Hz, 8 ohms)

My plan is to have:

A car seat with one MQB-1 attached directly to the frame of the car seat.

A plate (wodden or metal) where my MFG rudder pedals are mounted and an MQB-1 mounted to the plate as well.

Two or four mini tactile transducers (eg. dayton audio) attached to a frame where my Honeycomb Alpha Yoke and bravo throttle is mounted

I don’t care about stereo output from SSA sound module, but i want my amplifier to run in stereo mode. One channel to drive the two pcs. of MQB-1 and the other channel to drive the other two or four other tactile transducers. Thereby I will be able to adjust level of the seat/rudder separately from the Yoke/throttle.

My question are:

  1. Can i run my amp. with two MQB on one channel together with two different transducer in the other channel if thy matched in the same ohm range pr. channel?
  2. Could i use any 8 ohms transducers in the second channel?
  3. Wich transducers world you recommend for the second channel?
  4. Would you recommend another solution?
  5. How should i wire it up?
  6. Would it make more sense to use four MQB-1 (but the are expensive)?

BR, Jonit

Hi! This is my setup with six Dayton Audio TT25-8 PUCK 8 Ohm transducers and 3 cheap amplifiers.
