    Rockford Fosgate IBeam IB-200

    Has anyone on the forum used one of these or a similar product to add bass to their system? I am intrested in it but the price is pretty steep for a product that I haven't had experience with.

    I didn't know what this was until I googled it. It looks like it's just a tactile transducer. These things have been around for a long time. I've never used them, but from what I've heard they do work when installed correctly. Looks like the price is around $230, which I think is ridiculous for this. Especally since it's only for 1 transducer, albeit it does look pretty big. I'm guessing it's designed to be mounted somewhere centrally in the vehicle. I would rather use smaller ones and just mount one to the bottom of each seat. Aura has been making these for years. These are for the "Pro" version, which is a little bigger and handles a little more wattage than their basic ones (which I don't know if they still make).

    that was exactly what i was going to recomend he look at!

    i installed the pro shakers in my cousins car('94 berretta z2something)about a year ago-- he likes them, and they do seem to help the low end, though, nothing can substitute for 2-12's in a well built box, imo.

    i really think that rf overall is a ripoff, and have not seen any products from them recently that would be worth my money.

    for the i-beam design(no, it is not rf's idea), see here:
