"Shaker Mode" under sound option

I was reading my OM and it talks about this? I have the Shaker 500 (so pissed about this btw). I didn't order my car from the factory but I really wanted the bigger system. Does anybody know what this shaker "mode" is all about? It says to hit the seek button left or right after you've selected "sound". I don't think I have this option..

Must be referring to the shaker 1000 with the trunk mounted sub.

Don't be too upset. The shaker 1000 is nothing to write home about. You could just install some new speakers and and keep the 500 and it would be a world of difference. Plus you would save a lot of money.

^ Plus 1 on this . I don't know much about stereo's but a guy in the local car club has the 1000 and he said it's a joke and a total waste of money .

Oh to the contrary... you're better off without the 1000. The 1000 is the same system as the 500 but with a sub in the trunk.

Do you really think Ford is going to use quality audio components when 99% of people don't care and just buy the factory crap speakers? lol

You're better off because it means you didn't waste money on a seriously overpriced factory audio system. Spend a few hundred on new front coaxial speakers from a name brand like Kicker or JL Audio. If you want, get a trunk sub (though you also have subs in the doors)... might require an amp or something but you really can get buy much cheaper than a Shaker 1000 and get a MUCH better result.
