I just ordered 6 Fusion Escapes in black leather from Roman. Like everyone says, he is a real pleasure to deal with, great guy.

Based on outstanding reviews I read online about the chairs and customer service, I ordered 3 Jive-1013 chairs for my theater. The wife was a little apprehensive about spending that much money for something sight unseen. She needn't have worried. Communication with Roman was outstanding and I had my chairs delivered in a week. They arrived with one box a little beat up but the contents were undamaged.

Assembly is a as simple as sliding the back on until it locks in place. Be warned, these chairs are heavy. They are well built and should last for years.

As far as comfort, they are firm but everyone loves them. The power recline is smooth, quiet and moves at a good rate.

I am extremely satisfied with my purchase and plan on buying another row of 3 in the near future.

Thanks Roman...

I received a Buttkicker LFE kit for Christmas! *woot*

Is there a way to attach these directly to one of my chairs (Fusion Escape) or does it just sit on the little pad thing that came with the kit?

The BK-LFE is too big for the chair. It will not fit under it. The reclining mech. cross bar will hit the BK while reclining. The perfect buttkicker in terms of size, fit and power is advanced BK4-4 one.

My bad, I have the kit which does include the BK4-4, so back to my original question do we just bolt it onto the cross bar directly or is there a better way?


This kit.

Then it should be very easy. Our chairs come BUTTKICKER READY, and that means that the kinetic rubber isolators, as well as buttkicker plate with predrilled wholes for the advanced BK4-4 buttkicker is factory pre-installed. We even provide bolts and nuts. All you have to do is mount the buttkicker onto the plate and secure it with provided hardware. The wire it to the BK amp. That is all.

Humm, I don't seen any plate (and I don't remember any extra hardware). Were the chairs "Buttkicker Ready" when I purchased them back in 2011?

No, we just started then, and you probably got the chairs that did not have that feature yet.. We added the BK-READY feature a bit later.

Which leads us back to... What's the best way to setup an older Fusion-Escape with the Bk4-4?

You can get a plate and isolators from us, or you can get a piece of plywood in HOme depot, cut it to the size and bolt it to the bottom frame of the chairs. You would need to pre-drilled the wholes for the BKs, and I would still suggest replacing the plastic feet with the isolators.

I'm on it. I'll post project photos when I get it done in case anyone else is doing a similar project.

On a side note, I've had the Fusion chairs since 2011, other than being jealous of the USB ports on the new models, I love the hell out of these chairs. They have held up well and get tons of use.
