Question Rattling speakers

Folks with the Boston Premium speakers...Does your rear deck rattle when you turn the volume up past 25? I listen to a lot of Rap and those songs with a lot of 808 kicks and basslines makes my rear deck sound like about to fall apart. I have turned the bass into the negative numbers and it still rattles on some songs..Is this normal?

it's probably just a little loose somewhere. one bolt or something not as tight as it should be. take it to your dealer... that's what the warranty is for

I would bring it back to the dealer and have them fix it. Does not sound normal.

No rear deck rattle, but the doors rattle. If I push my elbow on the silver part of the door really hard, it will stop.

I get a vague rattle from the back when I'm listening to talk radio (Howard Stern), I don't notice it during any music...

I haven't dared to bump it up past 15, and 15 is pretty solid.

yeah it rattles the sound system is just really strong. I keep my bass at negative 2 always. I never turn bass positive on any system it makes everything sound dissorted and it blews speakers quicker. But yeah the system rattles the rear and shakes the hell out of the rearview mirrors. Great systems will do this

Yeah most of the time I'm around 15 or 20. I have the speed sensor set to low as well, I noticed with the windows up if its on medium it jumps WAY loud...

I don't hear any distortion at 30 with XM and it sounds good... its LOUD, but it sounds good.... maybe I'm going deaf....

Make sure also you don't have anything in the side pockets of the doors. Because I was getting a lot of noise from items hitting against the sides when the bass hits.

And I have had mine up to 38 and it sounds great. My settings are 12 terrble 6 mids and -2 bass and its the perfect sound at 38 vol. Also I turned off my auto adjust completely.

Something to look into also is the source of the music, poor quality MP3s will cause all sorts of noises and ratles. Anyhow i would take a look at how they are mounted and maybe tighten or insulate a little better.

Sunroof?

Richochet, do you have a sunroof? I have one and there was a rattle in the rear. Thought it was the right rear speaker. By chance, I slid the sunroof cover back and the rattle stopped. The void space in the roof seems to allow the rattle when the cover is closed, but not all of the time. I think a simple piece of foam will cure mine.

It's not your speakers, it's your music. Try listening to Celine Dion @ that level and see if the rattle recurs..
