assume you have watched Prometheus? Now that is a film that shakes the couch!!
had to take the intensity down since it bottoms out especially at the beginning. Currently feeling every judder of the ship landing- absolutely mental
one issue I do seem to have are that shaker centre are refusing to transfer the warranty to me? They state that it is not transferable?
but I have supplied the original electronic sales order plus the serial numbers of the kit. Given it's only 4weeks old I think this is v.poor.
told them that the original seller had not registered the kit, so if I hadn't been so honest how would they stand with it being a gift and me registering the kit even though I wasn't the buyer??
just hope it doesn't break!

Well, as long as Shaker Centre haven't noted any details down, you should be ok, as long as you have the receipt with you. I haven't had any problems with my buttkicker yet, it's been 4 years now.
Oh yes, I forgot to add Prometheus to my list of recommendations!
Finally, someone other than me on this forum appreciates the difference that a buttkicker makes to home cinema experience!
Ordered one over the bank holiday wend as was bored and thought could be some fun - delivery from shaker centre was quick with no issues
very well packaged and the unit itself seems very well built - bolted it to the underside of my corner sofa with very little hassel and had up and running i minutes
ran a bit of dark knight through it earlier and was very impressed - not sure if my sofa is going to hold up, bit concerned its going to shake it to bits
moved onto sky hd and started knocking through the loud seens, think that the lfe from skyhd must be a bit louder - have had to keep tweeking depending on which movie I watch as there seems to be no standard sound levels set by the movie studios or across different audio codes so sometimes needs turning up and down - zometimes wish louder during the quiet bits and quiter during the noisy bits - any advice on how to strike a subtle balance
did the rubber feet make a big difference to controlling the vibrations - i didn't have enough so have ordered some extras in hope of isolating it a little from the floor
Even if the butkicker shakes my sofa quite a bit (sometimes to the extent that it feels it'll fall to bits), the sofa is still intact after 4 years of use. My buttkicker "volume" is set at 50-60%, and only kicks in when there is a significant low frequency signal, like an explosion (the best bits of the film). It doesn't kick in all the time. I found that gives the best experience.
Mine is on rubber feet on a carpet, so doesn't vibrate much. You can put some extra rubber underneath to dampen it further.
Just watched jack reacher and sometimes when i felt i should be able to feel it nothing then wallop - one prob with the wireless kit is the volume no guide so never sure where its set. Been trying to find out online if it resets when powered off to like zero gain and then can move +/- 1db with each click forward or back
My sofa is against staircase and bookcase so get odd sound every so often
I'm thinking of getting this..... they have one for the wife ?

Hi matengawhat,Have to agree that the lack of an actual visual indication (led, display, dial) is one of the main weaknesses I have of the design, ie you're never sure if it's at full max or full min when you're pressing the up/down buttons. So it tends to be a suck it and see approach to adjust when you're watching a movie.I didn't have enough rubber feet either, but my room is carpeted and I don't think having the feet would make a big difference. Doesn't impact the couch too much since the carpet is new and quite thick.Have got to say I'm loving the kit, has made me re-watch a lot if films I'd not watched in a while, on Friday night, omg, I thought I was on Omaha beach in SPR Have also started to test it on music - find that I need to turn it onto it's lowest setting, but again it adds to the enjoyment I find.For the price I paid (eBay) I've got to say I'm very impressed and would recommend.
wife was threatening me with buttkicker responses when I told her had ordered one, now we have one she has warmed to it, but the kids love it - it's a fight to get on the couch to watch the films now
Cool, I'm going to see how the monies are as it does sound like a great thing to get... glad you guys are all enjoying it
Once you experience the buttkicker, you'll want to buy it!.....

See, I told you.....once you experience it, you'll want it!
That makes it silver jubilee this year!!
Congratulations for having your butt kicked for 25 years!
just wondering if anyone else has any issues with their butt kicker waking up with everything else turned off and randomly vibrating every once in a while
always had an issue with the volume control on this and could never quite get the control of the butt kicker as i wanted with it sometimes vibrating to loudly and hitting the casing but tonight dropped a -10db attenuator in the line and since then seems to be far far better - currently watching fast furious 6 and had no issues so far in what i think would be classed as a bass heavy movie
