Hey I have an 04 wrx and i just installed a set of cdt ef61 components in the front doors. they sound rally good but they make the plastic door pannels rattle like crazy. which makes it sound like crap. I installed Dynamat around the door but the plastic is still driving me crazy. what can I do to fix this?

Did you install the 'mat on the door panel itself, or just on the metal doorskin??

I put the dynamat on the metal door around the speaker.

Put some on the plastic. Dynamat doesnt absorb sound, it ads weight to stuff making it not rattle. By adding mass to an object, it takes more force for it to move. You need to put dynamat, or something cheaper, on the plastic.

Put some sound deadener on the door panel itself, since that is likely what's rattling. BTW, http://www.raamaudio.com/, much much much cheaper than Dynamat.
