    I was curious what the difference there was between the Premium 9 Speaker and Shaker "12" Speaker OEM amplifiers. As I expected, NOTHING. Just programing is changed. Boards have identical serials, components and paths. Here are the photos of the units opened.

    Do you happen to know how many watts per channel the amps put out?

    Nice work! This "Shaker" upgrade is now proven an even bigger rip-off. Glad I didn't get it.

    No, however I can tell you that the speakers I have seen are lower wattage units. Mine had the 9 speaker premium with 4 ohm units @ 25 Watts. I read that the shaker system used 2 ohm speaker units so wattage would theortically increase some.

    I can attest however that the sound programing is different between the units. I am curious if the line sub out put (on pins 1 and 2 of grey cable) is still enabled on my premium amp. I am trying that next and will report back.

    All I can say is this, a 9speaker amp, and 12 speaker amp.

    I hooked my JL subwoofer up, the mono d amp, wired directly into the clips that go into the amps.

    9 speaker amp- would not produce any signal for my subwoofer

    12 speaker amp- played beautifully. So soemthing IS different, because the 9 amp had zero sound, all wiring the same.

    I had a 9 speaker car, had to get an amp from 12 car to enable the sub to work/get signal.

    Additional note. I put in the 9 speaker today just to take a listen. Night and Day difference. The Shaker amp albeit looking the same certainly has something different programmed into it. Lots of compression programmed into it. And the sound stage is geared towards the front passenger side. Very odd sound.

    What did I miss? I love learning. I would love to know what is different with the boards.
