ButtKicker® brand BK-mini-LFE mini LFE low frequency effect audio transducers are based on the larger BK-LFE tactile transducers that have been received with rave reviews around the world since they were introduced in late 1999. Where the large BK-LFE tactile transducer is meant for adding the 4th dimension of sound to a group of chairs, the BK-mini-LFE is designed as a single seat transducer that requires minimal power.
ButtKicker Bass Shakers are built using a revolutionary, patented magnetically suspended piston design. Not only does this design create more accurate low frequency effects (drummers swear by them for monitoring), it also lasts longer! The magnetically suspended 6 oz. (0.17 kg) piston design pushes the resonant frequency of each ButtKicker transducer down to an ultra-low 9 Hz, allowing for a truly infrasonic, and usable, frequency range of 5 to 200 Hz! While other transducers produce their peak output at 60 to 80 Hz, ButtKickers are still going strong up to three octaves lower. With its ultra-low frequency response range the ButtKicker mini LFE provides powerful tactile response without the sound pressure of a subwoofer. The ButtKicker mini LFE is an ideal solution for single seat simulators.
Experience the 4th dimension of sound with realistic tactile and sound effects such as engine rumble, gear shifts, curbs, gravel, and other effects that you never knew existed in your racing simulation--all without disturbing others in the same room!
Each ButtKicker transducer piston is built using large gauge coil wire, and is surrounded by a large metal housing that acts as a heatsink. Should the coil wire exceed 150Â°F (75Â°C), an internal thermal switch disconnects the ButtKicker from the amplifier for cooling. This allows for years of maintenance-free use! Five-way binding posts offer nearly endless amplifier connection options, and all ButtKicker transducers are proudly made in the U.S.A.
