Ok. So I know the forum is called interior/exterior enhancements and I figured this barely fit. I need help guys. I have a 1999 toyota avalon. My trunk keeps rattling. I bought some weather stripping to help. So far I've applied it to the inside of the fuel lid, the edge of the trunk and I've even taken OFF the license plate to put W.S there. Sadly it still sounds bad. Please advise!!! To the mods out there, sorry if this is in the wrong spot.

Sound deadener is probably your only out here. I know it seems expensive, but it's not as bad as you think. I use Noico 80mil and it works very well. You can get 10 square feet on Amazon for $20. That's enough to do your trunk lid and sides as well as take care of the license plate. You can also pick up a roller for $10 to install it with.

you'll need some deadener and a giant can of great stuff expanding foam, fill in all cavities of the trunk lid. Also get some screws to fully screw in the top and bottom of the license plate.

I just looked at the sound deadner. Are you sure that's what I need? I'm not 100% sure where the rattle is even coming from. I barely hear it in the car and outside is horrible. I pushed on the bottom of the trunk, right below the license and it stopped making the noise, but I had to push kinda hard. Same recommendations?

I know I know...I just wanna eliminate as much as possible. Back in the day I used pennies with my 1990 Buick!

You could also look into GP STFU deadening its really thick.

 

You know how badly this would make a great reply?!

 

Oh btw, I have some of that GP deadening....stuff is fairly thick, kinda like memory foam on one side and the other side a thin layer of adhesive matting.

Turn the box around and face forward.

 

I actually ended up doing this since my license plate was rattling and so was the interior emergency trunk release.

I’ve read it doesn’t sound as great when facing rear seats versus firing towards rear of car, is this true?

Well, does it sound better?, Generally facing the trunk is louder unless, you seal it if while facing the cabin..

Honestly I’ve noticed such a small difference that’s it’s me negligible compared to before with all the rattling.

I’m waiting on sound deadening material to hopefully help out.

Let us know if you manage to mitigate the rattling your referring to! Especially your plate rattle

      I'm new to car audio and needed help on wiring up my system. I have 2 of the 8" L7 Solobarics and an 850/2 Kicker Amp. I have been told I should wire it up 4 ohm instead of 2 ohm, is this correct? How would I go about this? and To secure my subs into the box is there any specific screw I should use or whatever? It is 3/4" mdf
       
      Thanks

      I desperately need to upgrade my system, thinking RE audio is the way im going to go but what i dont know is how good the certain models of their subs are. currently im thinking an SXx 15" but maybe a different version would slam harder? also does anyone know for sure if i can get a 15" box in the back of my 95 bonneville? and should i have it ported or not?
    • By naztayboy
      I am pretty sure the way I want to hook my system up is Bridging the amp and then running my voice coils in series like option 2 of this link. http://www.the12volt.com/caraudio/woofer_configurations.asp?Q=2&I=42#results
      When I bridge the amp do I need to put jumpers or anything or just run 1 wire from the outside positive and the outside negative and skip the middle 2? I have a dual ported box but I will only use one of the connectors on the outside of the box? I have a 3/4" mdf box, should i use 1" wood screws to secure my subs?

      I will be running a FI BTL 15 d2 off of an Orion 2500d. Box is about 4 cubes tuned to 34z. I have a 180 amp alt, an optima yellow top for front battery, and a batcap 800 for back battery. I will have big 3 done in 2/0 welding cable.
       
      questions:
      1. Is it worth having multiple runs of 0 gauge from front battery to back, or will 1 be enough?
       
      2. Is it worth getting a second batcap for my trunk, or should I install what I got, see what my electrical is at, and just go from there?
       
      3. Do I need an isolator inbetween batcap and optima?
       
      4. Do I need to fuse between Batcap and amp?
