>I really like the idea of a wearable option

There are some for sale if you don’t want to go the DIY route: https://www.amazon.com/SubPac-M2X-Wearable-Physical-System/dp/B0751H8FZ1. I haven’t tried them. I would be concerned with lack of power/latency/battery. The seem to be wireless so the latency/battery would concern me. The also have to be small to fit on a vest so power would concern me. Again, I haven’t tried them but if I were looking to buy one those are the questions I would want answered first.

>Maybe a vest with two dayton pucks on the front and two on the back.

The concern I have with that is would you use a wireless or bluetooth signal to send the audio to the bass shakers? Other wise they would need to plug into the audio out from the computer so you would have an additional wire out of your computer connected to your body.

> I really liked the idea of a platform to stand on as well.

I think this would probably be the easiest solution for your testing as you try to figure things out. Make a frame out of 2×4’s, some wood on top, mount the bass shakers below, extend the wires from the back of the pc to the shakers and give it a try.


>Would you recomend any particular shakers or amps?

Below is my standard reply because the bass shaker question comes up 3-6 times a week in the various simracing subreddits. I will try to answer if you have any questions based on the info below.


I have 4 shakers set up on the 4 corners of my racing rig.

This is my DIY bass shaker setup:

EDIT:

Looks like the reckhorn shakers are currently unavailable on amazon. You may be able to find them elsewhere.

On amazon, These may be acceptable replacements because they are the same size/price as the reckhorns were:

It’s disheartening to hear that even $400+ headphones and dedicated amp aren’t good enough for my use case but good to hear that it’ll be good enough. What do you think about the claims made here? https://blog.landr.com/get-huge-sub-bass-without-fancy-gear/
Also, could this be a solution? https://www.amazon.com/SubPac-M2X-Wearable-Physical-System/dp/B0751H8FZ1

I’m trying to stay away from using studio monitors because I’ve read that the room size and acoustics affects the results. I might get a set of decent monitors in the future when funds permit so I don’t have to work with head sets on all the time. What do you think?
