Rattle.....

OK it has been about 6 months since I'm put in my Rockford's...my 5x7's I have had the problem off and on with rattle and it really didn't bother me....for the most part it is the back speakers....I went out 2day and made sure the speaker was firm against the exterior thing(dont know the name of it) and then I made sure the entire thing was firmly screwed into the panel....Still rattling....I want to get this fixed because I'm really wanting to get a couple of Memphis subs in the back soon....but I want to get this rattle fixed first....has anyone had this problem?

you can use little chunks of foam and squeeze them into certain places until you eliminate all the rattles. A few members here have done that before.

it def isn't the speaker...my guess is that it's the panel...sometimes if i press it at a certain angle or w/e it will stop but i can't exactly do that while im drivin .....i'm gonna try the foam idea.....i think that might work well.....thanx for the advice and if yall can think of nething else lemme know!!!!!!!
