Is adding a shaker to Avatar worth it? How well is it used in the game?

I've had an Avatar Pro machine for about 9 months or so now and love the game. I have an AC/DC pro that has a shaker and the amount of enjoyment it adds to the game is awesome IMO. I've never tried to turn the shaker off in ACDC to try it without it (to see what I'd miss), but just wondering who has added a shaker to Avatar and was is worth it given how well it is or isn't implemented into the code? I've got to imagine that ACDC's use of the shaker has got to be about the best ever based on some things I've read, but I've seen very little specifically discussed about adding one to Avatar. I'd assume it would go off when hitting the amp suit and maybe the link chamber (coffin looking thing), but other than that not sure what else it does. I've played an LE, but when Avatar was made even the LE didn't come with a shaker.. so I didn't get a chance to see what it would feel like. Any info would be apreciated.

Hrm.. well.. if there was a shaker in that LE I sure as heck didn't feel it. AC/DC shakes a TON... I mean earthquake levels. When you play that pin... I don't care where you are in the house... you will know it is shaking.

So... when you say adding a sub do you mean replacing the lower cabinet speaker with a better one or adding an external real subwoofer.
