If you are shaking small stuff at low frequencies, a long throw low

calibrate to a reasonable (<10%) level of accuracy.

Now, that's why I want one for myself... if I had the space and money.

However, it's about acoustics and mechanical design, and I am not 
totally clueless on those issues, just not done any *real* work.
