    Ultra-High Maximum Power Rating
    With one ButtKicker LFE connected, this amplifier is rated for 1100 watts (a 4-ohm load). With two ButtKicker LFE shakers connected in parallel, the amplifier outputs an amazing 2100 watts (a 2-ohm load).

    Multiple Connection Options
    The ButtKicker 1000-Watt Amplifier includes two different inputs depending on your usage, including a high-level balanced input for professional mixing consoles and other equipment with nominal signal levels of 1.25 volts. For typical home theater use, a line-level RCA input connects to a consumer home theater surround processor or stereo preamp with nominal signal levels of 160 mVolts.

    Other features include:

    • Low Cutoff Switch - cuts off frequencies below 25Hz (ideal for musicians)
    • High Cutoff Switch with Frequency Control - allows you to select the point where the amplifier filters out frequencies (adjustable from 40 to 160Hz)
    • Volume Control - allows you to set the amount of vibration
    • Low-Power Standby - saves energy by switching to a low-power mode if no sound is detected after 20 minutes
    • Thermal and output protection circuits - protects the amplifier from damage if an unsafe condition exists
    • Convection cooling - you won't be distracted by a noisy fan during quiet moments in the movie
