BA Rear Speaker Rattle...SOLVED!

Ok. Rear speakers were rattling bad,well bad enough to annoy me. Heres what I did. Ran to Lowes. Got 3/4" self tapping screws. 8 screws in bag for .98 cents. I got into trunk and screwed from bottom up into plastic speaker housing. There is about 1/4" to 3/8" lip for the screw to catch the plastic. I made a diagram. The red is the plastic housing,the black is the metal deck. Just used slight pressure so the screw didn't wander. If you do it right you will hit metal then screw into plastic. Put all 8 screws into it(4 per speaker) just like "normal" 6x9 screws would be placed. Tried stereo and no more annoying buzzzz!!! No if I really crank it up there is a faint buzz,but its not from the speakers,I think its from a panel touching somewhere. But only noticeable when its above 24. Hope this helps people who didn't want to take the back seat and panels off. I'm not to good with Paint,but you can see where I put the black stars is approx. where I put the screws in.

I stuffed some foam strips (used for sealing around window a/c units) in that gap and solved my rattling. Now just need to find a way to stop the door speaker rattle.

Well, its dark here right now. I can try to take some tomorrow if its not raining. No garage..... All I can say is what a difference. I really don't think I need or want to upgrade my speakers. If I lived in the car that would be one thing. I have the factory sub turned up 2 notches before max fader set to +1 rear bass on radio is set to 5. Sounds really good now.

Did you get a chance to take pictures yet? I'd really like to check them out.

I made this video last year before I installed a aftermarket sub into my car... Since I put a another sub in the trunk, I turned down the stock 6x9 speakers, so the rattling went away quite a bit. If I turn my Kicker sub up, it does rattle the deck lid some.

Your idea looks very good, something was needed to pull these pieces together so there was no room for the rattling to take place.

Post pics if you can just to give a better idea!

Ok guys, I totally forgot about the pics. But here they are. You can see the shiny silver screw heads in the pics. If you do this,once the screw goes through the sheet metal,DON't push. It will lift the speaker. It will still make threads. Just reverse it all the way out and go forward to screw it back down and you will see the screw pull the speaker tight against the metal. Ypu can see in 3rd pic where I missed the lip of the speaker. You have to go close to the edge of the sheet metal.

Very cool!! You are using the speaker frame as reinforcement to the speaker deck. I'm gonna give this a try too.

Holy Crap that rear deck moves a ton in the video. That takes a lot away from the quality of the sound out of those speakers too. I have never heard mine make that rattle even with my 12" sub in a probox under the rear deck but I am definately going to pop the trunk and look more carefully. I don't have any interior rattles so far, only the rear wheel well vents if the sub is turned way up. I wonder why the rear deck was made so flimsy? I bet the DynaMat is helping hold the deck better as much as deflecting sound away.

found an easier quick fix. Take a short bungie corn, wrap it around bottom of magnet and hook the hook to side of car somewhere. Just see where it doesn't rattle. Worked for me.

i'd be interested to hear steve's opinion on this, or maybe zach...i've noticed buzzing on these speakers, but sometimes it sounds like the speaker itself, as in you are giving it too much bass/gain. i wonder how much of that is gain and how much rattling. what do you leave your bass set at normally? you don't notice any overloading on the speaker at high volumes?

Tried the screw idea with 1/2" and looks like it really secures the speakers to the deck!!! Great.
My extra two cents: went ahead and bought a few square foot dynamat sheets on eBay for a lil over $20 and going to stick to that whole deck area under the 6x9s for extra absorption :-). Bass all down with 12" subs added should be perfect!

In my old car in the trunk I had cut 2" dynamat squares (which supposedly deaden a square foot area) and I stuck them thruoghout truck about 6" apart... No rattles at all! Inside and out.

happy slappin fellas

I did exactly the same thing with a bungee cord like a year ago and then just tie wrapped the bungee cord to some of the empty holes to keep it flush and need, something about making holes I don't like!

I haven't had a rattle, but the rear deck (and speakers) were pulled to tint the rear window. At which point RAAMat was installed. So that is likely working like what you guys are stuffing in there.
