+ What is Immersit Vibes?
Immersit Vibes is an easy-to-use device that adds immersion to your daily gaming and movie experiences at home. It provides powerful, dynamic, and subtle vibrations that sync precisely with your movie, video game or music. In other words, it is a “Silent Subwoofer” that shakes your couch and that turns any home theater into a 4D theater.
+ Why would I need such a product at home?
Have you ever felt the bass-filled shaking when watching a movie in the cinema, with your whole body vibrating during action scenes? Well, Immersit provides you with the same immersion experience for your whole family, at home, letting you enjoy realistic special effects and concert-quality music without disturbing the neighbors!
+ Where can I install it?
You can slip it under the feet of your couch (in the back or the front, as you prefer). You can also use it under your chair, your bed or any piece of furniture having at least 2 feet.
+ Does it work for movies as well as for games?
Yes! It works for any movie and any game.
+ Can I use it for music?
Yes! You can definitly use it while listening to music - it will provide the concert-quality experience you’re looking for!
+ Is it a dangerous?
Absolutely not. It does not damage your couch, your body or your home! It is not a jackhammer…it is addictive, though ;)
+ I have an L-shaped / U-shaped couch, can I use Immersit?
Absolutely. Immersit works with any kind of couch.
+ Does it require an app?
No, we made it super easy to use! You just have one button to push to make Immersit work. You do not need any app, smartphone, laptop or remote control. Just sit comfortably on your couch and enjoy Immersit!
+ What do I need to make it work?
Immersit works with any devices that output sound, such as a TV, A/V receiver, PC, video-game console, laptop, smartphone, tablet, projector and… a couch, of course.
+ What's in the box?
You will find everything to make Immersit work instantly with your setup:

- A 3.5mm – 3.5 mm audio cable
- A optical TOSLINK audio cable

- User guide
+ How many insulators are in the box?
You will find 2 isolators, which are enough for a 4-foot couch. If you have an L-shaped or U-shaped couch, you can order more isolators on our website.
+ Do I really need to use the insulators?
It is better, as the insulators will not only maximize the effect of Immersit Vibration, they are also important to support your couch and keep it level, making sure that the effect is contained within the couch.
+ Is it wireless?
Yes, the Immersit Emitting device is located behind your TV, A/V receiver or your A/V device; you do not need to have a cable running to the Immersit vibration device under your couch.
+ What is the wireless range ?
It is about 33ft / 10m.
+ Connecting the Immersit Emitting device to your A/V Receiver
The Immersit Emitting device has a digital and analog input.
You can select the analog or digital output of your A/V receiver, since the Immersit Vibes device needs to have a signal source. We recommend using your AV Receiver's "Subwoofer Output" (which will include the .1 or LFE channel).
Note: Immersit Emitting device only supports uncompressed PCM audio signals and does not support lossy compression such as Dolby AC-3, DTS, or other surround sound signals. Therefore, it is important that the digital audio output of your device defaults be set to PCM/LPCM output. Otherwise the sound output will be noise/static. If you want to use Dolby AC-3, DTS or other surround sound signals we suggest connecting the Immersit Emitting device to the RCA output or 3.5 output of your A/V receiver or TV rather than the digital output
Most Subwoofer Outputs are a standard RCA connection. In this case simply run the RCA to 3.5mm cable from the A/V receiver output to the 3.5mm Input on the Immersit emitting device.
If a subwoofer is currently connected to the Subwoofer Output, an RCA "Y" splitter can be used to run the signal to both the subwoofer and the Immersit Emitting device.
In the case where you're having multiple Subwoofer outputs, you may need to activate your other subwoofer outputs in your A/V settings.
If your A/V receiver does not have a subwoofer output (because of a proprietary cable being used for the subwoofer) you can still connect to one ouf the general sound output channel. In this case ensure that low frequency sound is being sent through the selected channel so that the Immersit Vibes receives the signal. If a speaker channel is unavailable some A/V receivers may have a line level output to connect to.
+ Connecting the Immersit Emitting device to your TV/Smartphone/Tablet/Projector
Most recent TVs have 4 possible outputs:
RCA Simply run the RCA to 3.5mm cable from the RCA output for your TV to the 3.5mm input of the Immersit emitting device.
HDMI You can use a simple HDMI audio extractor passthrough device that will extract the sound from the HDMI and export it to RCA or Optical connectors to which you can connect the Immersit Emitting device.
You can use the 3.5mm to 3.5mm cable and connect it to the Immersit Emitting device. Usually connecting the 3.5mm audio output will mute most TVs, smartphones or tablets. If you wish to continue having the sound from your TV speaker, we suggest using the Optical connection instead of 3.5mm or using the 3.5mm splitter to have your headphones connected.
- Optical Output
You can use the Optical TOSLINK cable between your TV and the Immersit Emitting device. However the Immersit Emitting device only supports uncompressed PCM audio signals and does not support lossy compression such as Dolby AC-3, DTS, or other surround sound signals. Therefore, it is important that the digital audio output of your device defaults be set to PCM/LPCM output. Otherwise the sound output will be noise/static. If you want to use Dolby AC-3, DTS or other surround sound signals we suggest connecting the Immersit Emitting device to the RCA output or 3.5 output of your A/V receiver or TV rather than the digital output.
+ My optical/HDMI output is already being used, what can I do ?
No worries, you can purchase an optical splitter or an HDMI splitter at any convenient electronics store.
+ I use a soundbar, what can I do?
No worries, you can use a simple HDMI audio extractor passthrough device between your content source and your soundbar. You can then connect the Immersit Emitting device to the RCA or Optical output of the audio extractor passthrough device so that image and sound will still go to your soundbar/TV and the audio will also go to the Immersit Emitting device.
+ Is it possible to connect the Immersit Emitting device to Immersit Vibes AND to my wireless headphones?
Yes, you can! We’ve made a special demo video just for you!
+ How do I turn Immersit ON
Click once on the button on any of the feet.
+ How do I turn Immersit OFF
Simply click and hold any button for over 5 seconds and Immersit will turn itself OFF.
+ How can I adjust the intensity of the vibrations?
Easy - press the button on any of the feet. Once you turn Immersit on, it is at full intensity (3). Everytime you press the button, the intensity will decrease until it reaches the minimum (1); if you press it once more, it will go back to the maximum (3).
+ How can I turn OFF/ON the light without turning off the vibrations?
Simply press the button for 3 seconds and the light will turn ON/OFF.
+ The light is increasing and decreasing slowly, why?
It means that you have forgotten to turn Immersit off, so it is in sleep mode. Simply click on any button to active it again or just wait; it will turn itself off automatically after a few minutes.
+ What is the maximum weight?
The maximum weight per foot is about 450 LBS, therefore the maximum weight for a couch + users is about 1800 LBS.
