there have been some posts on here about this but nothing concrete - please could someone tell me the best way of fitting replacement door speakers and then stuffing the doors so that they do not vibrate - and what is the cheap but best option? The doors vibrate just by having the new fronts running off the HU. =;

So far I've got about £600 worth of Audio Equipment fitted / in need of fitting - but I'm struggling to get rid of the poxy rattles from the doors! ](*,)

I fitted the fronts on the outside of the door panel - I pulled the grills off, and screwed in the speaker on the grill - the next plan is to make something from MDF probably which will sit behind the door panel and fill the space to the metal, then the speaker screwed into this for more stability - I quickly installed them, they look good but rattle as the only thing holding them in the plastic door panel!

has anyone found a quick, cheap, easy solution to stuff the panels to stop them rattling? I don't want to spend a fortune on this - but I need to do it as I'm probably amping them next weekend when my new amp arrives. \:D/

cheers guys :D

i got a whole setup just in front, speakers and tweeters. i seem to be lucky as i have no rattles at all!! a good soloution mate, on what my mate did with his car was to put cotton wall in the door,behind the speaker. so far he has had no probs with it. otherwise ring a specialist audio shop as they could have an answer

i have no rattles, but check all pannel clips and screws are secure (if one clip is bust then it will rattle like hell.

The otherthing to do is line your door with brown bread (cheap version of dynamat, not kingsmills best), not only does it help kill rattles it makes the speakers perform better.

bud it depends on how ure gonna take it. if ure putting in good components and amping them up then i would recommend u sound dead ure doors. the easiest way to do that is buying "dynamat".

not only will this reduce ure vibrations it will also reduce the road noise coming in which will help increase the quality of ure sound.

ps if ure gonna do a job do it right get the door panel off and get in there none of this grill stuff.

Best option

Take off the door card and line it with a roll of sound deadoning (Dynamat or Brown Bread)

Then put a layer in the door itself, you will need to take the plastic wet sheet off and this can get messy but is very worth it

Then use the original tweeter position but screw the speaker to the outside of the door card

Onve you have done thin build up the sound deadoning around the speaker back to ensure a solid fit

This is what I did and I had no rattles whatsoever and it sounded amazing \:D/

Plus it looks good too!
