The ButtKicker Gamer2 lets you feel all of the action from your games and simulators. Feel the gut-wrenching punch of machine-gun fire, the pounding of chopper blades, explosions, racing engines, gear shifts, rumble strips, landing gear, engine throttle and more. Turn down or turn off your subwoofer and still feel all the bass - even while using headphones. Take your game or sim to the next level of realism.

This convection cooled (fanless) amplifier includes a wired remote control and a base stand for vertical placement. Designed to be responsive and aggressive, the ButtKicker Gamer2 answers the need for both accurate low frequency response and maximum tactile effect. Digital music playback, gaming, simulation and computer entertainment have never been so realistic or intense.
With a patented magnetic suspension system, and a thermal switch for heat protection, the ButtKicker Gamer2 is virtually indestructible and maintenance free.
The ButtKicker Low Frequency Transducer: Shake that booty
When it comes to home movies and gaming systems, the bar has been raised exponentially in the past several years. The immersive effects rendered by a modern gaming system are just staggering. We expect surround sound systems that drench us in audio cues with enough bass from the subwoofer to cause a nosebleed. This is a real problem for bass addicts who live in an apartment complex or with housemates who don’t appreciate bass the way every decent human being should. Whether you are looking for a more immersive experience for your gaming system or are concerned about the mental well being of the downstairs neighbors, the ButtKicker low frequency transducer may be the solution you are looking for.
Science tells us that as pitches get deeper, we tend to feel the tones with our bodies rather than just hear them with our ears. A ButtKicker simply bypasses a traditional step in this process and sends vibrations straight to your body. The result is a dramatic bass effect that feints your senses into believing you are experiencing bass frequencies so powerful that a follow up visit to the chiropractor is in order.
One such LFE transducer is the ButtKicker BK-GR2 Gamer. The primary focus for this bass delivery system is to quickly transform your favorite gaming chair into an active part of your immersive gaming system. The BK-GR2 can be used in two main ways:
Whatever the motivation may be, a low frequency transducer provides a bass experience that is a whole different animal than a standard subwoofer. Read up on customer reviews and you will quickly find that most enthusiasts who try a ButtKicker would never go back to using a subwoofer alone.
For the geekazoid in all of us, let’s take a look at the particulars of the ButtKicker BK-GR2 Gamer system:
It’s pretty easy to imagine the benefits the added low frequency effects would have on an intense gaming session. You will be able to feel engine RPMs, rumble strips and collisions in a driving game much better. First person shooter games will benefit from additional tactile feedback when shooting a large rifle or taking mortar rounds nearby. Movies will definitely take on a new life as explosions, thunder, car chases and more get projected directly into your body. There are other applications where low frequency transducers add to the experience such as:
While I could list a dozen other cool applications, I think you get the idea already. It’s surprising to me that these devices have not become more commonplace in the gaming and home theater world.
When you finally realize that I REALLY know what I am talking about here and you order a ButtKicker for yourself, keep this handful of tips in mind for getting the most out of it:
This low frequency effect can be hard to describe with so many words. It really must be felt to be appreciated. If a deeper experience in gaming or home theater is something that interests you, this is one merciless butt-kicking that you are sure to enjoy.

I use this thing for playing flight sims and combat flight sims. Sometimes it is difficult to find a happy medium between the buttkicker bottoming out or being too soft, but overall it's a great product.

I have three Buttkicker Gamer 2 set ups, two for my PC and Xbox One cockpit and one for my PS4/PS3 set up. The sense of immersion that tactile feedback adds simply cannot be replaced with anything else. Kudos to Spectrum Audio for having the Gamer 2 in stock, all other sites I checked are sold out.
All prices are in USD.
