Buttkickers - 3 questions in exchange for 1000 Karma points!

I just purchased new theater seating. Two rows of three seats each.

I was all ready to buy a pair of Buttkicker LFE's and the BKA-100N amp....BOOM....done.

Then I found out that these seats are not actually joined together, other than a small bracket at the back to keep them from separating.

I called Guitammer Corp. and they recommended 6 Mini LFE's in this situation. Apparently I can still use the BKA-1000N to feed them a steady diet of 250W each.

Here comes the question part and your opportunity to receive an absolute motherload of good Karma (which I will personally send you through the Interwebs)...

1. I would rather feed them the 400W they are rated at to help them handle large Dynamics. Does anyone know of a good amp that would let me wire up 6 of these little guys and feed them 400W each?

2. I love the idea of Wireless with a remote to control intensity. The BKA-300 has that feature but it's too small for this install. Are there any aftermarket products that would allow me to do this?

3. Finally, are there any other transducers for this particular setup that are recommended (other than the Aura's which, to my taste at least, aren't beefy enough)?

That's my 3 questions and I am really desperate for some feedback so please chime in and help a brother out

The difference between 250 vs 400 watts is less than 3 db of spl.
