    A new version of the bass shaker buttkicker is being released in October. The Buttkicker II. If your thinking of getting into a bass shaker at a great price, let me know because if we can get a dozen people to buy in on one we can get a group buy on it.
    see info on the original Buttkicker at www.thebuttkicker.com
    Its the bass shaker of bass shakers...

    I believe group purchase organization is against forum rules.

    I'd be interested in a group buy depending on how much it would cost. Please contact me at [email protected]

    If I have broken a forum rule by posting this, administrators please remove this post. I was only looking for some others who may want to take advantage of the opportunity.

    I spoke at length today, again with Marvin (around 2:00 p.m. 9-25).
    I asked specifically about the differences in:
    1) Fs (resonance frequency)
    2) Frequency response curve
    3) Power handling
    4) Efficiency
    5) System 'Q' (transient response).
    I will continue to ask these questions until I get a solid
    answer. Marvin continues to be unable to provide me with any information at this time. He says he will have more info in 2-3 weeks when they begin shipping, although I heard the same thing 2 weeks ago. I'm not sure who is the lead designer resonsible for the changes, but I think Eminence Technology, the OEM of the Buttkicker may have had the major role in the resign, as they have a lot of outstanding engineers and facilities for producing raw drivers. As shown on Buttkickers website, they have a new relationship that is based on the Buttkicker 2.
    Hoffman's Iron Law is something that binds tactile transducers, as well as subwoofers as far as I know. You don't get a boost in efficiency without giving something else up. With subwoofers, as I believe in tactile transducers, my guess is that the Fs is indeed somewhat higher. When one is designing a subwoofer, in order to get the Fs lower, one lowers the efficiency. The lower the efficiency, the more power it takes to get the same level of output. More importantly, the higher the Fs, the less deep bass is achieved.

    Chris,
    Keep us updated on any new info on the new Buttkicker II and its ship date.
    Thanks again...I'm looking forward to getting these up and running. I'm building my HT platform this week.

    I would be interested in getting one or two depending on the price and if it would suit my needs. Since everyone is in agreement that the BK's are the best, I may give them a try.
