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 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.

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 need some help with my first enclosure build. Pardon the inexperience. I've done a bit of research. I've been trying to figure out this basic design for a month now. I've tried WinISD but I can't for the life of me grasp that at this point. This being my first build, I want it as basic as possible. I'd love to keep my cuts (dimensions of MDF) as simple as possible as well. This will be powered by a SoundQubed S1-1250 @ 1ohm. 
      Sub specs - https://soundqubed.com/hds3-1/
      Vehicle : 2013 Hyundai Sonata
      Location in the vehicle: Trunk
      Space available (Length x Width x Height): 30" W x 14" H x ~any" D (I have wiggle room on depth. decent size trunk)
      Subwoofer make and model: SoundQubed HDS3.112 D2
      Subwoofer Size: 12"
      Number of Subwoofers: Single
      Type of Port (Kerfed, Slot, Aero, etc.): Slot? Something easy.
      What type of music do you like?: Everything but LOTS of rap and deathcore
      Is your goal SPL or Everyday Music?: Can I have a bit of both?
      Tuning Freq (Hz): ?  32hz I guess?
      Volume : ~2ft^3 or larger
      Questions: So I've tried my hand at WinISD but am having trouble with it. I tried subbox.pro and came up with this design - https://subbox.pro/en/b/anwchHHKJ. Is that website worth my time? This box is supposedly 2ft^3 @ 32hz.

      So I got some money together and a better job. I want something where I look at it, I can say “this mf is bulletproof” I’m going to have a friend build me a sealed box. 
      I am not sure if I want two 12s or two 15s or one 12 or one 15. Which setup should I choose? Is having two subs better than one? I know one sub with more surface area and more watts will be better than let’s say 2 subs with half the surface area and half the watts. But there is so much I want, but I can’t choose a setup. So here I am coming to you guys for some help! Thank you!

      Okay so basically don't have a lot of knowledge about car audio systems just want my car to be obnoxiously loud.  I have a 4 channel amp, 4 speakers and 2 subs.  Can someone direct me to an installation guide to make it easier.  Also is it possible to have all 4 speakers and 2 subs hooked up to 1 amp or hook 2 of the speakers straight to the headunit cheers

      Hey everyone, I'm pretty new to car audio, and I have some questions on mono amps and subs.
      I just purchased 2 10 inch subs.  They are the Polk Audio DB 1042 SVC.  It's a 4-ohm sub with single voice coils.  I also purchased a sealed box for these subs. (https://www.sonicelectronix.com/item_1747.html)
      The box has 2 separate spots on the back for connections.  One on the left and one on the right.  I also have this amp. (https://www.sonicelectronix.com/item_93307.html)  It's a 750 rms class d 2 ohm (stable) mono amp.  I also purchased an 8 gauge amp wiring kit.
      Now, I know how to wire the ground, power, and remote turn on.  That's a breeze for me.  It's wiring the sub to the amp that I'm not good with.  With my system I have, shown above, could someone give me specific instructions on how to first, connect the subs to the outputs on the enclosure?  In other words, how to wire the back of the subs to the enclosure before screwing in the subs.  And 2nd, how to wire the amp to those sub outputs correctly.
      Thank you.
