I will have two platforms one will be 7'x12'x12" and the front one will be 6'x12'x6". Should I go with one BKII in each platform or go with two in each?

First, please read our User's Guide. We endeavor to teach the user how to correctly apply the ButtKicker shaker so to receive the desired results. Since construction and structure are so directly involved in the final results, the User's Guide provides a good foundation to understanding the principles involved. We would also be happy to help provide insight to your specific situation.
The ButtKicker is an excellent low frequency transducer, but what it drives (your platform/floor) will have a direct influence on the total system response. Good low frequency response is a combination of both the ButtKicker driver and the surface/platform driven by the ButtKicker. The platform, whether it is a suspended wood floor, or a platform built under your furniture, needs to be able to move/shake at low frequencies. A tight (usually small) platform may vibrate freely at higher or midrange frequencies but not have the freedom to move for the low frequencies.
