Now comes the Subpac, a tactile bass system that slips against the back of your chair and allows you to feel those low frequencies. Suddenly that you can feel frequencies down to 5Hz, which is impossible in most small studio situations.
This isn't the first time that tactile bass systems have been tried, as the Buttkicker has been around for a while. That unit took a little bit of clunky installation as you had to physically mount it to your chair or stool. The Subpac is simple in that it just fits to the back of any chair like a seat cushion, supply a line in signal, and get your butt shaken. I experienced it myself, and it really works well. The Subpac is available for $350.
