    My 2 12" subs rattle the shit outta my car and its getting me pissed. First off, the black rubber head rest thing that goes on top of the back seats rattles, like the back part does because for some reason it doesnt fit right?? And the trunk panels, like are loose, and I can't get them to stay!

    Heres a pic of what I mean. See the top rubber thing above the seat? Look in the left hand corner to see how high it sits. WTF!

    How can I solve this problem? :comando:

    take out your subs and get louder exhaust. Thats what I did. There wasnt enough dynomat to make mine stop rattling with 2 15's, so I just removed them and instaled meth injection tank in its place :)

    Well my exhaust is pretty damn loud now, any louder and it will be that obnoxiously loud LM1 sound :puke: or something close to it. I like music though :-\

    It was a fuggin nightmare. First I tired taking the amps out, and putting it in. That didnt work. So I had to customize another box to fit with the amp rack. Then I had to sawzall shit outta the way and loosen some bolts here, and hit it with a hammer there... heres some pics

    you and your damn sawzall ;D . Do all the sound deadening possible and make sure everything is tight. That is why i only plan on getting a single 10. Some bass but not all the damn rattling (not as bad anyways). I think there is a gap there no matter what (maybe not as bad as yours hard to tell from pic)

    hmmmm how come you guys are putting your subs facing the front of the car? I have always faced mine towards the back.

    I've heard if you face them towards the rear they will sound better. I only faced mine towards the front because I had no choice. I'd rather have had them point the other direction.

    I dunno how you can have a bigger gap. Are the 2 bolts tight? Maybe loosen them and try and bring it down and then tighten it back up?
