Professionals have two differing points of views regarding Bass Shakers.
The Pro's that care about their customers will not even stock these things.
The Pro's that are in it for the money will try to sell them to you.
They do NOT reproduce bass. Period. End of discussion. They DO vibrate. It's kind of like sitting on a giant pager (or vibrator if that makes it easier for you to visualize) that buzzes to the beat of the music. It trys to fool you into believing that you are getting bass when all you are getting is buzz.
There is not an IASCA competitor in the world that would put these things in his car...he would be laughed off the circuit.
I'm sure some of you will be pissed off after you read this. That's your choice. Just as it is your choice to buy them and use them. Everyone has different standards and different levels of understanding and knowledge and I won't argue that there is a market for these things...but you certainly won't see them in what the professionals would consider to be a serious system.
