Shakers

ButtKicker BK-Kit-4 Wireless Tactile Transducer

ARTICLE INDEX

Introduction

ButtKicker has been making tactile transducers (shakers) for several years now. These are devices that make your chair, couch, or floor vibrate when low frequency material is playing. They were always very powerful, and in fact, more intense than many consumers wanted. You could always just turn down the volume, but then, you were paying for high power shaking that you were not using. So, ButtKicker decided to produce a shaker that is smaller, with less maximum shaking potential, and include a smaller amplifier. The BK-KIT-4 is the result. It has a 300 watt amplifier, and also has wireless communication with the subwoofer output on your receiver.

It is being sold only online. You can purchase the BK-KIT-4 on other websites for $399, and those websites take a commission on sales. You will be able to purchase that same kit for $299 here at Secrets (we make no commission on sales) by clicking on a link that will give you a special code to enter when you purchase the kit at ButtKicker's website. You save $100 because making commissions on sales of products we review would represent a huge conflict of interest, and that is not the way we do business at Secrets. The URL and code are on the last page of this review.

Update April 29: The price suddenly came down elsewhere in response to our review published on April 28.

Update April 30: ButtKicker now will offer free shipping just like Amazon does. You will need to enter two coupon codes, one for the price reduction and the other for the free shipping. The only restriction is that the free shipping is for the Continental United States only. So, the price of $297.95 is the lowest price and beats the price of any other website. Our apologies to those who have already ordered the kit before the offer for free shipping became available (Secrets readers sure move fast!)
