I just took out 2 chairs to bring down to the testing room and put the rest into storage. Due to the cramped quarters downstairs I just used a left and right to make up one love-seat to try out over the next few weeks while I wait for the house to finish up.
Here is the love-seat set up next to my other Italian leather seat.
They come in 2 pieces which is nice for moving them around but the bottom is still very heavy with the motor and other steel components. Once I had them together I plugged them in and tested out the power recline (each chair has a separate plug). The recline is very smooth and quiet overall I'm quite impressed.
Moving on to the lighted cup-holders.
Under the chairs they have another 12 volt line that runs in a series from chair to chair (I'll have more pictures on this later).
Once I had run the chairs together in a series and plugged them I went through the process of trying to figure out how the light works. The instructions for the chair don't really tell you anything about anything really so I had to figure it out by trial and error.
First off I thought they were by pressure and the drink in the holder would turn it on. I played around with it an the light kept coming on and then off and then I thought maybe there was a small IR sensor that when blocked by something (like my hand in the photo) would make it come on. That didn't quite work all the time either and I finally figured it out when I turned the lights off
There is a small sensor that I was covering with my hand and that is why the cup holders came on I realized later. Once the lights go out they are on all the time (if they are plugged in).
I am having issues with one of the chairs so I'll have to call Kyle later this week and see if I'm doing something wrong as far as set up as the instructions don't really say anything about how to set them up.
I'll have to do a lot of game playing and movie watching in the next couple of weeks before I can make an informed opinion on them but so far I like them
I'm back to work just for a few days but if anyone has any questions or comments let me know
I'll be back soon and I will take more photos and go into more details on these chairs for folks that may have questions (I know I recieved a lot of PM's on these but for the sake of not repeating a lot of PM's please post your questions here on the thread
