    Door rattle from speakers?

    This may be posted about already, but i didn't feel like looking for it.

    I noticed a rattle in my pass. side door when there are deep bass tones. I checked it a couple of times and the speakers are fine...not blown and don't distort at high levels. The sound seems to be coming more from inside the door somewhere. Has anyone else heard this and know what can be causing the rattle.

    Dynamat - get it on all the doors, and the interior will sound like a BMW. Your local stereo shop can give you a price on installation

    Dynamat? I assume it's some sort of insulation...but can you fill me in?

    Thanks

    go to...

    www.dynamat.com

    it's like an insulation, but the site tells more about it. It's good! I had it in my old car and I never had rattles.

    at first mine rattled a little. Then it stopped. So I'm not bothering with Dynamat. Although if I run into some extra cash after I upgrade the speakers, I'll consider it.

    Which setup did you get? The doors or just the speakers themselves?

    What they do is line your walls where you have speakers. I had it in my Prelude. They pretty much lined the whole door.

    So i guess they would do the same in my rex...line the doors. I went to get some pricing today actually and it's going to run about $60 for all four. I will let you all know more later.

    Raamat

    You can also try Raammat60 and install it yourself. The cost $99 for 60 square feet.

    60 square feet allowed me to install two layers on the roof, one layer on the doors, one layer on the rear deck and rear wheel wells.

    60 square feet weighs 28 pounds for those who are weight conscious.

    I am very happy with it so far.

    The only drawback to the Dynamat that I've heard is that it is pretty heavy when you install a bunch of it. They have a trunk kit that is like 12 square feet and I was informed from my local audio shop that the kit weighs nearly 50 pounds!

    quick fix for door rattle

    I had the same problem -- the passenger door rattles when the speaker hits certain bass frequencies.

    For a quick fix I stuffed a stress ball into the left side of the door pocket and that fixed it.
    I'll probably leave it like that until I get around to doing a speaker upgrade, then maybe I'll get some dynamat.

    Just thought I'd share what worked for me.
