Therefore, I returned the item.

It works as well as I could possibly have hoped and I am extremely pleased with it.

This is actually doing the right thing and transmitting the hum.

I have to add my .02 cents here. First of all, the rambling review quoting transducer frequencies is wrong. He did give the unit 5 stars, however he tries to defend the unit by attempting to invalidate the reviews of the unit when used with a subwoofer rather than the BK shakers.

Guitammer clearly states this unit can be used with a standard subwoofer which is specifically what I needed it for. I read the reviews here and decided to keep looking but after a fair amount of research, I found no other devices claiming the (sonic) frequency range of the BK-Link. Other wireless units were offered in sets and were intended for use with rear surrounds. Along with being more expensive, they also claim 20Hz to 20KHz audio which is standard speaker range. It's also the range of human hearing (generally) but subs are also about feeling. Both of my subs go well below 20Hz and I wanted to be sure I would get all of the performance out of them that they are capable of giving.
The operating frequencies of the BK-Link unit start at 5Hz. The upper range is stated to be 350Hz. Much higher than anyone should need for the intended uses.
So... I went ahead and got this and figured I could return it if it was unacceptable.
I was prepared to chase down any hum, something I'm quite experienced at. But, there was no hum to chase. I plugged it in, hooked it up, and it worked.
I played one of my favorite sub tests, the crash sequence from "Flight of the Phoenix(2005)", as I am very familiar with my sub's performance with this material and I see, or should I say hear, no difference between a line and the BK-Link.
No discernible delay was added nor was any loss of volume or tone obvious. This held true for music tracks also.

When trying to decide whether to try this product or not, I read 2 Amazon reviews. One said this product would defintely work with a sub-woofer, and the other said it definitely would not work with a sub-woofer and the vendor specified it wasn't meant to work with one. I decided to try it as I have recently installed an LCD flat panel, and I now have a totally wire-less set up, except for my powered sub-woofer. I hooked up the ButtKicker, and sure enough it works with the powered sub-woofer. The only caveat I have is that sometimes when I walk by the sub-woofer, it "woofs" (a low rumble) at me, which is some sort of feedback. Even though I have this small annoyance, the overall operation is quite satisfactory. Note: The previous reviews I read did not specify whether or not their sub-woofers were powered sub-woofers.

I'm using the Buttkicker wireless system with a Sony subwoofer, and it works fine. Only downside is that, occasionally when we walk between the units and the signal is disrupted, a low-freq sound is generated by the subwoofer.

After reading the reviews and searching the web for reviewers saying that this could work/couldn't work for subwoofers other than the Buttkicker, I'd thought I'd give it a try, not wanting to run 40-some odd feet of subwoofer cable. Seems to be working fine with my Definitive Technologies powered subwoofer, and I'm not hearing any noise or outside signals/interference. I don't have any wireless units using the same frequency and I'm using it in a single home, so that might be a factor. I have the transmitter pointing out from the front of my entertainment console, directed at the receiver unit (which I have on the floor under the nonsofa bed couch), which is about 15 feet away. I tried having the receiver sitting on top of the sub behind the couch, and that worked fine as well. The only downsides I see currently is that all the units have power running to them so they're always sucking juice, and if you have the transmitter in view, the bright green LED could be distracting; otherwise, it does just what I wanted it to do.

This system did not work for me. All I got was hum and noise. I am using a Yamaha home theater receiver so that may be the reason or it could be the plethora of other wireless devices in our house causing interference.

I thought I would put my 2 cents in here. I have experienced most of the gremlins that several of the people have listed. I have had hums, pops when you walk between the units, pops when you turn on the ceiling fan and the very low level hum that one man talks about. I have overcome all of them. I have figured out the Buttkicker is very susceptible to RF interference. I started out close to a computer and other electronics with a ceiling fan in the middle. It was horrible. First I raised the level of the send and receive units above head height. That stopped the pop when you walked between the units. I then move the units to the other side of my 130" projector screen and way from any electronics and boom or should I say no more boom, all the hums and pops stopped and it sounds great. I think the sub hits a little harder even with the gain set in the middle I have had to turn it down a little. I hope this helps others sort out there problems the unit does work with subwoofers if you can get rid of the gremlins. In all fairness if the units are used as designed a little RF interference wouldn't hurt anything and you probably wouldn't notice it at all.
