    Is that the one where you put your guitarist in front of it, and if he plays a horribly dissonant, distorted, 50dB too loud chord, it kicks him in the butt? I want me one of those! :D

    You simply mount the buttkicker underneath the drummer's throne, & when/if he plays out of the pocket, it gives him a swift & hard kick right in the
    ass. Very useful, MANY applications for all kinds of people.

    JNY-I read the article too. Is that picture to scale?
    I envisioned it to be larger.
    According to BP, it is a valid embellishment but requires both high-power and an appropriate mounting plate- Another toy! Cool!

    I wonder-it seems sorta like EA's rumbleseat.
    What about that?

    I pictured it larger too. I think the rumble seat is a recording device, just a speaker in a box. The ButtKicker is, uhhhhh, more like a feeling device. In other words, it's designed to make you feel the thump of your instrument but doesn't project any sound. I know the thump. In mid size clubs with killer PA's I've felt that thump in my chest, thought I was having a heart attck realized it was only a killer system which produced devestating lows and killer punch. The Butt Kicker, I think, is a punch fabricator, like the blast force from a bomb.

    The Rumble Seat is actually primarily a "feeling" device, so that in the mixing room with phones on, you can still feel the bass impact. The fact that you can stick a mic in it is a secondary use.

    Edit: correction, it's described as both on the EA website:

  7. That may be, or there is a model that you can attach to your couch and/or the floor joist to add feel to the music.

    You can also mount one under a platform and run in-ear monitors.
