    Sub rattling at high volume

    I have a JL w7 10 and when I turn it up it makes a really loud rattling noise. When it is at a low volume it sounds fine. Is it maybe tinsel lead or something? Or is the sub about to blow.. Someone help me out

    Also I took it out of the box and played it and the sound seems to be coming from the back of the sub/magnet..

    So what should I do about it? Is there something I can do to figure out what's wrong. I'd also rather not take it somewhere to get checked.. Too expensive
