rattling plastic underneath drivers side door when bass comes through speakers


Recommended Posts

Hey everyone, 

 

Recently when ive been playing music, I have noticed a vibration sound when bass is played through the speakers above 10 vol. I have checked out this rattling and it is the plastic on the rear of the drivers seat. Is there anyone that knows what could be causing this vibration/rattle?? and if so, how to fix it 

I do have my bass adjusted above the normal audio standard with the headunit

Hi Charlie,

 

You have the Theatre System, don't you ?

 

You sure you haven't blown a speaker ?

They emit a buzzing sound, which can be very quiet to very loud depending on any damage.

Too much bass might sound good, but it is a speaker killer.

 

If it is a plastic panel (why start now) but it could be caused by resonance.

It could be harmonic vibration where the bass speaker is actually causing the plastic panel to vibrate and behave like a speaker.

 

Try a piece of tape across the seat back panel to test if that prevents and or dampens it.

 

Otherwise, turn down the volume !!

 

Good Luck.

yeah I do have the theatre system, And no its not a blown speaker. 

Currently ive just placed a piece of fabric in-between the rear gap at the bottom of the seat. That has seemed to do the job

Thanks for this info :)
