Re: Shaker 500, worth $440?
The shaker 500 is worth the money, NOT the 1000.
IMO, here's why...
The shaker systems add an 8" speaker in the doors, granted it's not the best speaker, but it makes a nice custom look for an 8" woofer.
Also, the front speakers in the 500 ARE an upgrade and the system does sound decent for stock. The 8 inchers really make all the difference.
Granted, I have replaced all the speaker and will add a sub and change out the headunit at a later time, but the molded doors are worth it. Besides, many people think the 500 is great and never upgrade a thing.
