What is the Best way to install transducers

What Is the best way to install transducers

1) ....  To the subwoofer 

2) .... Run a splitter off the audio jack

I ask this because I have a single buttkicker Plus with the amp and all that.

Would I get more performance using one or the other.

Also can you just by pass there amp and run it straight off a receiver as long as it had the amps to push it.

Assuming that you bought the Buttkicker for gaming, the best way is to use a dedicated sound card or USB DAC.  They work best if fed a signal based on what you want to feel (road texture, crashes, gear shifts, etc), not what you hear.  Fortunately, the new Plus (and Pro) include a USB DAC, so if you connect to your PC using the USB connection, it will show as another sound device that you select in whatever you are using to drive the transducer (SimVibe, HaptiConnect, iRacing's built-in LFE).
