    maybe one of you guys can help me, i got 2 12's powered by a rockford 900watt amp in my trunk, my trunk rattles so god damn much its not funny, standing outside the car all you hear is the trunk rattling rather than the base its self, what is the best way to deaden this shit, expanding foam, dynamat, foam strips???

    Tighten screws and bolts.
    Maybe replace the latch that holds your trunk down.



    What kind of car is it?

    I'm planning on installing a dash dvd player with a screen and two screens in the seats for the back to watch. That's going to be quite the hole in the pocket.. but I think it's worth it.

    Maybe adjust some of the settings in the speaker system.

    what exactly is rattling? the tail gate of your truck? licence plate? the whole body?

    what kind of box do you have your 12's in?

    you can stop the rattling of your licence plate by putting duck tape or whatever that powerful tape is behind it so ive heard...

    maybe you could switch up the box you have your speakers in? or try stuffing them with poly fill perhaps?

    its a bandpass box, and its just the trunk lid its self that rattles, no bumper no license plate, its a 99' neon, if i put pressure on the top, like sit on it, the rattling stops

    boxcars, i think you should go with an indash dvd/cd player, it would be much easier....also they have head rests that you can buy with the lcd allready mounted inside....incase you didnt know that allready

    bandpass is the enclosed boxes correct?

    hmmm, well i assume you could try some dynomat crap on your trunk lid, but from the looks of that stuff, it seems pretty hard to do, unless you buy it in those sheets (which i think is like $20 bucks for a pack and it only covers like a square foot or some bullshit)

    but besides all that, the rattling is in some ways a good sign, it means that your system hits hard and is "wildin' out" in your trunk. :lol: haha.

    yes, i was one of those people.

    dont get one of those "fin" thingies, or whatever the hip term to call them is. that stuff looks wack.

    pay a fat chick to sit on th trunk while you drive before buying one of those god awful things.
