Well first to begin with, I am a newbie in the car audio department! And this is my first setup ever!
I have a '94 Nissan Sentra with 2 Pioneer 12"TSW305DVC in my trunk in a ported box. I am running my entire system of 1 Boss BL2000 amp (limited cash!) and I have 2 Pioneer 6x9 on my rear dash. My problem is that whenever I crank up a LITTLE, my rear dash vibrates like hell, and it sounds like crap!! My seats can fold down, and even when I do it, the dash still vibrates along with my entire trunk. I tried sealing my rear number plate with moutain tape, and that stopped vibrating for a while, but it started back now. I need some advice as to what I can use to seal my trunk, and as to what I can do to eliminate that irritating vibration of my rear dash!! It makes no sense to me to have music, yet can't play it! Thanks in advance!!

Oh my bad.... number plates actually sounds better any ways :D
Just use sound deadener, you have two options the mat version or the paint on version... The paint version is better for hard to reach places with awkward curvatures, but the mat version yeilds better results.

people here will advise against dynamat. overly expensive. there's tons more cost-effective things out there.

secondskin is just that.

I appologize. The reason why i assumed you should know that is because im a Noob myself, but i still knew that. But seriously, im sorry for assuming.

What others have advised is exactly what you should do. Make sure to be generous with the dound deadener (whichever one you end up using...and no, they're not all equal)....make sure to apply at least two layers to those areas that you know rattle the most. Also, be sure to dynamat around where your 6X9's mount to....i.e., take them out, dynamat underneath and behind where they mount to...then put them back. This will also give you better sound reproduction.

My bad...i missed that part (even though it was in the first line). It's just that when i post noob questions like that....i've always gotten attacked similarly, and i believe that it helped me by teaching me to search extensively before posting questions or face the wrath of.......other posters!
