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?

Yep, just be aware that runk rattles are near impossible to fully eliminate.

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.

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

      My list of gear as follows
      1x Boss mono block amp 2500w (old setup)
                  -twin pioneer champs Dvc 1200w 12"
      1x pioneer 4ch amp 1000w (60rms x4ch)
                   - 2x pioneer 6.5 260w (60w                                                 rms)component
                   - 2x pioneer 260w 6" (60w rms) coaxial
      Head deck : pioneer fxh755 bt (2 RCA out)
      Just wanted to know the best way to get the audio to the amps,
      1 RCA per amp?
      I've never delt with  4ch is just having 1 RCA going to give me full control or full quality on my 4ch. If I got 2 RCA splitters would that achieve anything useful?   
      Is high level worth using do I lose any quality compared to RCA? So out RCA into mono amp amd high level into 4ch amp?
      What's the best way about doing this. Is there any recommendations? I'm not wanting to spend too much money on this 🤣

      So I recently purchased 4 Polk Audio DB652's for my 2012 Subaru Impreza (with a stock in-dash stereo). I like them but I wanted more out of them so I purchased a Pioneer D9605 5 channel amp. I chose this amp because I wanted to see more output from my current 4 door speakers and a sub woofer that I am planning on getting (Rockford Fosgate P3D4 12"). I feel like I got my amp without being well informed on other factors and was wondering what some great car enthusiast think of my purchases and car audio goals. Ask any questions that I would need to further clarify to help y'all help me!  Also, are the Polk door speakers I got that great?
      All help and recommendations are very much appreciated!!!
      P.s. I don't have a large knowledge of car audio if it isn't yet obvious.

      Ok, so to start off I am new to the forum and I really hope you guys will be able to help me on this one. 
      My current setup is 2 kicker s12d solo barics (old school) and a memphis pr2.100 amp. The amp was an upgrade from my old MTX Thunder 325. 
      Ever since i swapped amps I had a minor issue where the amp wasn’t getting properly powered on and I could usually get the big blue light and power light to come on by hitting the amp (gently) or moving the fuses up and down. 
      Recently, the amp has been acting strange and it will not power on at all. I can get the big blue memphis logo to light up a little by wiggling fuses, but it eventually shuts off and the amp itself never fully powers on. 
      Today I changed my ground wire to a nice thick copper wire with a copper terminal. I also readjusted my remote wire to ensure all of my connections were perfect. It worked for about 35 minutes and then cut out, and now I can’t even get the amp to turn on for a few seconds. And yes, I checked the fuse under the hood. 
      Anyone have a clue what could be the problem? It’s an older system, but hasn’t been abused and worked fine for at least 4 months before this happened. I really would like to avoid buying another amp because I am currently buying a new headunit and some jeep mods. 
      Any input is appreciated. 
      Thanks, Conner

      I’ve been looking for an Apple car play receiver/unit for my 2009 Nissian Pathfinder. I entered my car make and model on crutchfield electronics website, but it says there are no receivers that are compatible with my vehicle; which is just hard to believe since it looks like it could take a standard double dimm sized receiver.
      Any help is much appreciated!

      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
