Need help picking a Bass Shaker

I built a Full Marty sub with a Dayton Ultimax 18" a couple months ago, it completely changed the way my mini theater sounded since I previously owned a PSW505. I also got a Mini-DSP and frequent the "Bass EQ for Filtered Movies" thread, but a lot of the times I dont get the full benefit of the EQ because my Sub enclosure is tuned to 17hz. Add in the steep HPF for protection and I basically get no ULF.

In my situation which Bass shaker + Amp would you get for a 3 seater couch to fill in where the sub drops off? Budget is $1,000

Help a noob

I’m in the same boat. I’m looking at Crowsons($$$$$$ but probably the best performance reaching all the way down to 1hz and actually lifts the chair) or the earthquake mqb-1($$ but performance under 10hz may be significantly less, some say it’s the best performing “shaker”) you could buy 3 earthquakes for the price of 1 Crowson but I think I’m holding out for Crowsons instead.

I have three cheap shakers attached to my two seater right now, 100W each. Their performance between 10-20Hz is 'meh' and nothing below 10. Above that you'll get a decent massage, but I was aiming to add a high cut at 25-30Hz (24db/oct).
Obviously I won't get much performance from them, but they were 20 bucks each and I had an amp to spare anyways, but I've only heard great things about the Crowsons.
The level 2 set will set you off 1750 bucks, so that's well above your budget but two actuators is 1000$. If you have a spare amp you could just get the two actuators and use that with the minidsp.

Why not the Q10b?

I don’t have first hand experience but have heard the larger one makes some noise while the smaller is silent.
