Arrow Anyone have a bittkicker subwoofer?

Look for a great new subwoofer. I saw an ad for the buttkicker sub in a home theater mag. Looked interesting, the concept was that it maoves more air than volume for effect!

I thought the Buttkicker was a couch shaker. Are you saying they have a subwoofer also? You got a link?

Arrow Buttkicker

As far as I know the buttkicker is a subwoofer. What do you mean by couch shaker, what's the difference?

buttkickers are also called transducers, it is a flattish disk device that attaches to floorbeams or couches, they really shake the room. they are only used for super low freqs, as having Arnold's voice shaking your bottom would be a little weird. Great for plane crashes and stuff.

If a kick butt sub is what you want, try http://www.sunfire.com/. Then combine one of them with some buttkicker couch shakers.

Default Rel Subs

Best Sub I have encountered is REL. Flawless performance. Shakes the entire house.

I use Aura buttkickers sold by Part Express and others. I think around $30 a pair.
I have a single channel amp connected to them. (wired in series, they are 4 ohms each).
They will never replace and sub, but for more realisim in fun, action and horror movies they are pretty cool. Especially for explosions.
Turn them off for good music soundtracks or CDs, etc.

There are more costly ones available,. but if you don't like these you are not likely to want any.

We've got a pair of the old Aura BassShakers bolted to the bottom off the couch. Pretty cool for Pearl Harbor or T2.

The kids get a kick out of it especially.

Yeah...yeah...yeah...that's nothing. I was at a place that rents out professional concert equipment one summer...and I fell in love in subwoofer that used (4) 26" metal subwoofers. The sub woofer box ported and was so big that it had forklift slats in the bottom to move it...I saw this a Tipton Sound & Lighting...

Even though it probably sounded like S$#@ but hell you wouldn't know it. You're clothing would rip off, ear drums would bust out, and your heart would explode. All while you body vibrated itself into a puddle of goo b/c the shear pressure of the airwaves around you would vibrate as if you were in a giant microwave...

Im trying to remember the last company I saw that had alluminum cone subs. They were a real hot item on the streets of Indianapolis back in 2001-2002.

I remember a Popular Science article about bowel liquification weapons using sub-sonic sound waves. And a hyper directional speaker that could be beamed at one person in a crowd of thousands. Test participants said the sounds seem to come from inside their heads, meanwhile, noone else in the immediate vicinity can hear it... think that one over for a minute and then wonder why weve never heard nor seen anything on that anymore.

Velodyne came out with their first set of full range loudspeakers that had cones like that.
I remember hearing them. They were not terrible...but not great either..

RBH is another brand that looks like they have aluminum cones. Very nice sounding speakers.
B&W uses Kevlar on some ....for what that's worth...
