I have the same problem. With my 2 15s, my back window flexes like crazy. Im thinking about taking the plastic piece off the back wall and getting some dynamat and put down then screw a piece of 3/4" mdf to the wall and put the plastic back. Im hoping the dynamat and mdf will keep if from flexing quite as much.
