    Hey guys,

    I got a 2nd hand buttkicker gamer today, and it works great, except I think I may be missing a cable or two. It came with a headphone to phono cable, which plugs into the back of the amp, but no splitter or anything. I had a splitter already, so I used that, but the vibrations only happen on the right hand side of the car, as the input is obviously in stereo, but the BKG only accepts a mono input.

    I presume I should have had a stereo>mono converter/splitter cable with the unit? If so, where can I get one now? :)

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi Alex. Do you have a local Maplin store handy. I'm sure that they can sort out what you need. Order online otherwise. I have a pre-used one due next week so I can let you know what's with mine if no-one else has come back to you beforehand.

    Regards
    Iain

    Thanks mate. I ordered a stereo>mono adaptor on ebay - hopefully that'll sort me out.

    Will reply when it arrives.

    Are you hooking up the BKG to the sub-woofer?

    Remember not to have to strong it will heat up and shut down, or even blow the amp.
