yah its sound dampened (dynamated) but the interior side of the door moves around and the outside of the door doesnt rattle....its just the interior door part that rattles around...guess doors werent made to handle insane amount of power and flexing. any other ideas?

My stockers do it.... Atleast I can hear it. I've considered building a frame from the speaker mount to the metal portion of the dooor. Could solve some problems by being braced to the actual body.

One of the cheapest and easiest ways to stop the rattling is to go to home depot or lowes and get some thin foam weather striping. Then you just apply to all areas where the plastic is hitting the door or other components. This should go a long way to stop most of the rattling.

You could take the door panel off and put Dynamat on the door panel itself. Shoud help with some of it.
