So i was surfing youtube today and I saw this guy's video (he might be a member of the forum, but I don't know) and he has a sweet sub box.

1999 Dodge Intrepid on 24&#39 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dksFG10e4MY)s with 2 15&#39 (http://www.caraudio.com/forums/usertag.php?do=list&action=hash&hash=39)s on a Kicker 2500.1(system not complete) - YouTube

Would a box like this pretty much take away all trunk rattle? Would it decrease or increase bass?

Rattles aren't limited to the trunk. Any decently loud system is going to create rattle. Doors can rattle, roofs, side steps, fender flares, anything.

The trunk will always rattle...I've seen plenty of setups where the trunk is sealed off from the front and still manages to rattle quite a bit. Not much you can do besides put some deadener down on it and maybe a little bit of foam weatherstripping on the edges to prevent any lid slap.

True, I just don't want the bass to sound like trunk rattle from inside the car, how do you reduce that.

hahaha I was laughing my A$$ off when I saw that, I don't understand how putting speakers under the engine bay could make a difference, you will never hear them unless your outside of the car.

Thats user error, not Dodge. I have an 03 Neon, and has 170k on it.

I'm sure it's just to be obnoxious and have people look at you.

2.7? Oil Sludge and Engine Failure with the Dodge 2.7l DOHC V6 engine (http://www.oilsludge.com/) notice your neon is not among the many cars affected. iirc wasnt the neon basically a mitsubishi? either way im talking about the 2.7 and dodge is still poop and have lowest resale value for a reason bud. no offense to your neon. i even own a caravan and its poop. doesnt hold a candle to my toyota sienna in any way. the old conquest was about the only chrysler i ever liked.

Must be a manual, I had an 04 automatic and the tranny failed at 47k miles lol. I did enjoy driving it though.

Yea, and thats why you pay more for those vehicles. Lol. You pay for what you get. I paid 2500 for my Neon and its treated me very well since I have had it. Only issue was my clutch. And honestly, idk, I know the old Dodge Talon and Stealth were based on Mitsubishi cars, I dont think the Neon was. I am a Dodge fan, and always will be. But I would never back something just because of that. You may be right on the 2.7, but Dodge/Chrysler make very good cars if you take care of them. Just like almost any other car. I'd take a Viper over a Corvette or Camaro. Id take a Neon or the new Dart over a Cobalt or a Focus. And I would for sure take the new Durango over any SUV the other companies make. [Comparing American cars in the same price bracket]

Yea, my clutch went out around 140k. I have had little issues here and there, but once I got on the Neon Forum, I learned how to fix most of the stuff. I just need new bushings now, which I should be fixing in a few weeks, and the Drum brakes **** me off!!!

just stay away from any with 2.7 bud. yea she paid like 24k for the car new lol. sold it for 800 bucks with the bad motor. go dodge!!! lol. but if i was to buy a little car it would likely be a honda cr-z 2012 Honda CR-Z - Exterior Photo Gallery - Official Honda Site (http://automobiles.honda.com/cr-z/exterior-photos.aspx) . i have a 1992 civic with over 210k miles on it and has been fabulous....no issues period. as far as american the viper is a cool car and i really like vettes but i kinda like the v series cadillac too. think i might take the v series just because it still has somewhat of a luxury look. just funny how a cadillac wagon would eat 95% of vehicles on the road for breakfast lol.

Dodge diesel trucks seem to hold their value better than any others.

Well we got WAY off topic here, and to keep it off topic, that viper looks good!
Back on topic, no, you're always gonna have rattle as you get louder. And that intrepid is gawd awful... 24" rims on ANYTHING look retarded, let alone a budget sedan.

To the OP. I will keep my opinions to myself about the video. That type of enclosure, pseudo 4th order, is just one type you can use. The time should be spent completely sealing the trunk from the cabin. I spent gobs of cash on deadener and foam and spray foam, and tons of other stuff. You name it, I tried it. The only success I had was to completely seal off the trunk from the cabin. Here is the best part. Gained output. 141.0 to a 144.7 sealed on the dash and tuned to 28Hz. No other changes. I spent a lot of time sealing it properly and the trunk didn't rattle at all. The sheet metal on the roof folded on itself, lol, but no more rattle.

hahaha oh man, speakers on the outsude of the car?
Not smart to begin with... then he makes a video of it and posts it on youtube, so everyone knows he has speakers on the outside of his car.
I doubt they stayed there very long...
