Hey all, just got my subs installed in the trunk, 2 Alpine 12".
I dynamatted the trunk, but there is a crazy amount of buzzing through the car...
It seems like it is coming from the roof, like the sunroof, and the panel where the sunroof buttons are held. It also sounds like it could be some buzzing through the doors.

Is there any common parts that could be causing this problem? What have everyone done to decrease the buzz/rattle.

Thanks everyone.

you can take out that sunroof button panel, just pop it out...its held in by clips. try putting a little bit of dynomat folded in there, or anything that will dull the vibrations.

next thing you can do to reduce the rattle is leave your back seats down, of course.

thats a strange place to be rattling, but all these e36's have seen their own adventures. my rear deck is the only big thing that rattles, i have pretty much fixed that with dynamat, but im too lazy right now to do anything about the trunk rattle, any suggestions on how to make it sound better outside of the car (fix the trunk rattle).

oh and im sure this has been said, but, with at least one rear seat folded down (in e36 IS's) subs sound soooo much louder in the car and rattle a lot less. but you know i need room and i got that gangster lean when im driving and i can't even fold down the seat right behind me. 1 seat folded down sounds good enough to me.
