Just a quick question on a recommendation on putting some buttkickers on my 2 platforms which will have movie theater seats installed on them

1 platform is 8 feet long by 5 feet wide
1 platform is about 6 1/2 feet long by 5 feet wide

Platforms are constructed of 2x8s with going in the 5 foot wide direction. 2 layers of 3/4 plywood on top with carpet on top of that. Platforms are sitting side by side to make a big platform 14 1/2 feet long x 5 feet wide.

6 Star Delight theater chairs will be bolted to the platforms. I hope to add a 7th if there is room.


How many buttkickers should I install under each platform (assuming I should use BK-LFEs)?

OR

Should I add a few minis to the actual row of theater seats?

You guys thoughts on this would be great.

Thanks

Greg

I would not use mini-buttkickers in the platform. I would use a pair of BK-LFEs in each platform. I hope you have at least 8" clearance (platform height), because the BK-LFEs are not small units... Then you can use BKA-1000-N amp to power all 4 buttkickers.
