Anyone running buttkicker with PS4?

I just got mine running. Had to change audio out to Linear PCM. If I used any of the dolbys it would just continuously vibrate. I'm running optical out from ps4 to astro base (bluetooth headset) then optical out to Analog converter then RCA to buttkicker. Amp settings are low cut on (fixed at 25) and high cut 45. Mounted using the trakracer specific mount on my RS6 rig.

I would have mixed reviews so far on F1 2020 and GTS.

Definitely feel kerbs (left side much more pronounced) and crashes. High speed makes it vibrate (wind noises I guess) so I tune it down to have that not so overwhelming but if you hit kerbs at high speed tough to differentiate. I dont feel gear changes in F1, maybe slightly in GTS. Definitely dont feel any traction loss but thats expected since no simvibe.

Wondering if going through a proper audio amp before sending to the buttkicker would improve feedback? Maybe then it would work on Dobly instead of PCM? Just read somewhere that PCM linear with optical as audio output is stereo sound. That might be the issue there (no .1 sub signal?). They dont recommend HDMI converter but not sure why.

Looking for anyone's experience with Buttkicker on PS4.
