Default Butt Kicker 2 now available.

Yup, the new version 2 is again available. This one has a digital amp that is absolute quiet.I have the original model but I did not use it very often because of the noise the fans made. It was LOUD. I have the new one on order but I'm wondering if anyone here has one of these units? How do any users have it set up?

Nobody here with one of these? A must have for race and flight sims.

I have the original gamer to but I never used it much because of the noise and the big ass cable attached to the chair.

Butt Kicker is a unit that hooks up to your chair and transmits sounds into the chair that is sort of like Force Feed back. Only better. It truly enhances game play in racing,flight sims or shooters.If a grenade goes off near you,YOU WILL KNOW IT! If you have a minute or two,check out the Butt Kicker site for Videos etc. Well worth a little over $100.00

I guess that comment I made was not as humerous as I thought. However,if you are concerned about driving your wife nuts with noise etc. don't worry. The new model has a digital amp that has no fans and is silent. The fact that you can use the Butt Kicker with headphones makes it less likely that you would bother any one else while you are gaming. I have the original unit and the amp was way too loud. I could not hear my computer etc. over the noise the original Butt Kicker produced. Just like rObc,i didn't use it much for that reason. Hopefully,the new model has these issues corrected. I will let all of us know when it is delivered and hooked up.
