    Have any of you heard of "the buttkicker"??
    it is a true subsonic output device. the size of an old engine oil can .

    It outputs true subsonic vibrations, down to 10Hz. with is the natural fequency of an earthquake!!! the inventor was at our engineering facility ( we are automotive interior systems design/manufacturer, i'm in product development)

    we installed one into a pontiac grandprix. it sounded awesome.....
    I mean felt awesome!!! RIGHT IN YOUR CHEST.
    it vibrates the vehicle body and you feel it. design originally for rock band drummers to feel the beat as they all wear earplugs now days.

    anyway. I think this would work awesome bolted to the floor of the cockpit. takes MUCH less room that 2 or 3 subs and still outputs more subwoofer "feeling" with a 500watt amp.

    Audiofn, heard or played with these?

    retail $200, amp retail$200 and can double for a 110V power inverter.

    That is a transducer. The theory is good used in addition to subs and speakers. In the past I built many systems for Jeeps with other types of similiar transducers. In a boat though, you will hear many other sounds if everything in the boat is not glassed in. If the seat is a substructure or if the floor is screwed down, you will hear sounds that are not desireable.

    What works best is fiberglass boxes around a good sub. I offer vacuum bagged white gelcoated sub enclosures for 8,10 and 12 inch subs for as little as $135 each.

    For speakers I usually suggest Babb as they sound good outdoors and play loud.

    For amplifiers, Rockford Fosgate has great quality and overall the best reliability, least power consumption using the bd series and best efficiency.

    If someone is looking for some pre-season amp or speaker deals, I always have brand new, premium products that I can offer at a great deal to fellow OSO members.

    Feel free to call (813)882-8477 for advice.
