Mounting ButtKicker's to an Obutto

The ButtKicker Simulation Kit is for people who want a way to custom mount their ButtKicker - what most people tend to do is get a flat piece of metal and remove the seat. They place the metal panel on the seat rail frames and drill holes to match the mounting points for the seat, and then mount the ButtKicker to the center of the plate (Underneath), and then the seat mounted back to the frame, holding the plate down.

This will allow proper distribution of the forces of the system through the rear section of the cockpit.

The ButtKicker Gamer 2 is designed to mount direct to the Obutto cockpits by way of a clamping system designed by ButtKicker. The simkit is a more DIY version, and allows for multiple transducers to be used at once.

  • I bought a 15"x15" Aluminum plate 3/8ths inch thick from a local metal supply shop ($20) for mounting my Buttkicker LFE (the original huge 11 pounder) to the rig. I tried an 1/8th inch thick plate first but kept hearing what I thought was it bottoming out too easily. Turns out the thinner plate would flex too much. The 3/8th inch plate is PERFECT and recommend to anyone wanting to really feel their buttkicker(s) and being able to turn up the volume/strength. Even for the LFE-mini.

  • I have a R3Volution on order and plan to mount my buttkicker mini LFE this way but I need some dimensions because I don't have the seat to measure.

    What is the distance from the outer edge of one seat rail to the outer edge of the other seat rail?

    Also, what is the length of the seat rails?

    This will allow me to get a rectangular piece of metal before my rig comes.
    Chris says he got a 15"x15" but are those the exact dimensions needed? Did he cut it to a different size?

    I can't find these dimensions anywhere. Thanks for helping.

  • Obviously too late for Joshua, but for anybody who comes looking later, my rails are 15-3/8" wide (outside edge to outside edge) and 14-1/8" long.
