    I have yamaha hs80s and want to hook them up to my aura bass shaker to get more out of my bass response. this is the bass shaker - Aura AST-2B-4 Pro Bass Shaker 299-028

    how do i set this up? My hs80s go into my focusrite interface which goes into my laptop.

    That's a passive unit, so you would need a power amplifier to drive it and a crossover network at least to keep high frequencies out of the butt shaker. You would be best looking for a professional 50 - 100W power amp with a balanced TRS jack or XLR input rather than a domestic hi-fi amp with unbalanced phono (RCA) inputs. For the crossover, you would need the type that has stereo ins and stereo med/high outs but the option of a mono sub output. A unit that had variable crossover frequency in the range 30 - 80 Hz would help you adjust the setup for best effect.

    You would connect the output of the interface (where you plug your HS80s into now) to the input of the crossover, and the med/high output of the crossover into the HS80s. The mono sub output of the crossover would go to the input of your new power amp, with the power amp output going to the Aura shaker.

    You have omitted to give your location in your profile, so I have no idea in which country you are located, and this makes a big difference in terms of what you can buy easily. Also, you give no idea of budget in whatever is your local currency (which I am assuming is the Albanian Lek).

    The amplifier is not critical. Something like the low-cost Soundlab G097 would probably work OK.

    The crossover is a bit more difficult. The LD Systems X223 or an equivalent spec unit should give the required result.
