I got 6 1/2 Alpines in my doors and my passenger front speaker sounds like something inside it is "rattleing". Is it blown? How do i kno what it is??? I got a replacement plan so its not a big deal but im driving 8 hrs on friday and dont want to deal wit crappy sound?....ANY IDEAS??
AND IS IT OK TO PLAY THE SPEAKERS @ VOL LEVEL OF ABOUT 33/40?!?!!?

Because it is rattling.
Replace them before your trip, or you may only be listening to 1 side.

It's not too difficult. Are they hooked up to an amp, or HU for power? If amp, you can easily swap the L & R at the amp -- to make sure it's the speaker.

Check your door pocket. I thought one of my coaxs was blown (Boston RM6) and I found out that one lower midbass stuff it was vibrating my ice scraper in the pocket at the base of my door and for me, since I've never blown a speaker, I could have sworn it was blown until I figured it out.
Fade everything to the front, then sweep left to right with the balance and see if one speaker sounds different than the other, if so then you have problems.

if its hooked up to your head unit its easy to blow them cause you turn it up at a third of the volume and it starts to distort

yes. the power is comming from the HU. IThebass is all the way down (my sub handels that). The speakers are clear and dont distort. Later on in the day it sounded ok? idk, mabey im just parinoied...and im gonna get a 4 channel amp soon..i hope. lol
and nothing in in the door. i hate clutter in my car...
