    Subwoofer Rattle in trunk!!!!!!!!!! please help

    Hey guys. I just put a new 12 inch infanty sub in my 05 wrx. It rattles so bad and the gain isn't even that high. I hear dynamat won't do that much from the guys at circuit city. Is there any other soultion i can do to fix it. Also the rattle is just as bad outside as it is inside

    I had two tens in my wrx, but ended up takin them out cause the rattling was unbearable. I put dynamat on every surface in my trunk and still could not eliminate the rattle. I found out the majority of the rattling was coming from the tailights or behind them. Either or I just said screw it and took the subs out. The license plate also rattles quite a bit.

    I'll probably do that soon. But I don't know how much it will help. I think even more of the rattling is coming from the bumper than the trunk. The license plate rattles a little, but more from the bumper.

    I would try to isolate the rattles as much as you can and focus on those areas first. Dynamat, or other materials like that will help add mass and strength to panels that are vibrating. If installed correctly it will help alot. Alot of the rattles usually come from where any plastic parts (tail lights,license plate) bolt or snap into the metal. I've always had good luck with placing foam or soft carpet in between those parts. It just takes alittle time tracking them down.

    I found that most of the rattling from my sub comes from the rear deck. Make sure it's in securely. I also suggest you make sure that your back plate is on tight too. I've heard the differance with dynamatting in other cars, and it's very noticeable, yet I've also seen that it might have to be replaced or re-installed if not done so correctly.
