    Question Buttkicker + Playseat Challenge

    Hi everyone! These days i discoverd the existence of the Buttkicker. I really don't know anything about that but i'm really interested in using it with my Xbox One and Project cars.
    I play with Thrustmaster TX + Playseat Challenge + T3pa + Th8a. And for the sound i have a samsung Soundbar with a wi-fi subwoofer directly connected to my tv by HDMI (ARC).

    Now my questions are:
    - What's about the price? Can you please suggest me some online shops?
    - It's worth with the Playseat Challenge?
    - How does it works? Which connections should i do?

    I hope to find someone who can help me,
    Thank you in advance,

    Marche777

    I have a buttkicker from a few years back.I could not figure any way possible to hook it up to the xbox 1... I had it for my 360 which allowed you to use two sound outputs at once but I couldnt get it to work with the xbox 1.. Maybe the latest buttkicker has a different way to hook up to it.

    I have a BK2 connected to my 5.1 amp, so it works with any game, movie, TV programme... anything that puts audio through the amp, basically. It's amazing for immersion in racing games (you 'feel' kerbs, shunts, engine rumble etc, and get a thump in the back when changing gear) but it's equally as good for other games too. I was playing Arkham Knight just last night and getting a 'thump' every time Batman lands a punch or kick, or feeling the shake from the Batmobile's afterburner all adds to the experience.

    Mounting it to a Playseat frame is fairly easy. I followed web advice and used a spanner socket as a small vertical post under the rig.

    I can't remember exactly how it's connected up (it takes a shared feed from my sub, and has its own little amp) but it was pretty easy. Full instructions are provided.

    Mascot thank you very much for sharing your setup.

    My dubts are:
    - is it compatible with my playseat challenge without doing any difficult changes?
    - how can i connect it to my audio output? I use a Samsung HWF450 connected by hdmi to the TV

    Ah, sorry - I'm not too familiar with the Playseat Challenge. I'd assume you'd just clamp the BK to one of the rear legs? It's recommended that the mounting is vertical (as opposed to horizontal) but I can't see the angle making all that much difference.

    As regards your audio connections, I'm not too sure. These links might help:

    Works great... You will need an optical to analog converter.. Go from optical on back of xbox one to converter and then analog out to the buttkicker amp.Click image for larger version.

    Where can you currently buy one?

    They've been out of stock for several months now.

    I have the Butt Kicker Gamer and it's now a hit or miss on whether it wants to connect so I'm ready to toss it and get the Gamer 2.
