6x9 Sound terrible :(

Today after taking back my Jl Audio C2 3 way speakers, i installed a pair of spr-69 speakers in my back deck and i realized...they still sound like CRAP...i was wondering why do they sound so bad...i installed an aftermarket amp that has enough power to fully power it, and i just installed my avicz120bt....could it be the fact that i just drilled them into the metal and theres no type of support around it (theres 4 big holes and plenty of gaps surrounding the speakers) or what? If any one has any solution on why my 6x9s rattle so much and sound terrible, please let me know what i should do..thanks in advance!

It's probably not the 6x9's that are rattling. I had a terrible rattle myself, but it turned out to be the rear deck itself that was rattling. To test it, you can turn on a bass-heavy song and open your trunk. Go back and hold tightly on the magnets of the speakers. You will probably notice that the rattling stops. I solved mine with Subthump spacers and 4 square feet of dynamat.

Check out this video of the rattle I was experiencing (note: This is not my car in video - it's just a video showing the problem I had):

You need the spacers for the rear speakers otherwise they will sound like crap. Sub thump, Metra and others make the appropriate spacers for the rear deck.

While you're installing them, you might as well use some sound dampening while you're already disassembled...Dynamat, Fat mat, etc. pick your poison. If you don't handle it now you may regret it later.

ecko04 is correct You need the mdf spacer that Steve has for sale subthump.com, and make sure you seal the mdf before you install them.
