Hardware for Simvibe

I am looking to activate the 4 mini butkickers on the stage 4 simxperience motion rig

It already has them at the 4 corners.

Can anyone recommend what I need? 

an amp? (channels, watts )

Pcie sound card (Internal) 5.1 or 7.1?

what else might I need to get this part of the rig going?

You would need a 4 channel amp with 100watts or more per channel to drive four ButtKicker Mini LFE's. We use this on the Stage 5 and it has been flawless for years: BasX A4 Four-Channel Power Amplifier – Emotiva Audio Corporation

You'll also need reasonably heavy gauge speaker wire and a second PCIE sound card in your PC that's specifically for SimVibe. For example: Creative Sound Blaster Audigy FX PCIe 5.1 Sound Card with High Performance Headphone Amp : Electronics
