Why dont you put some dampening material on the underside of it and maybe try to tighten down anything that may seem somewhat relatively loose. Other than that, im not sure what you can do, i seem to be having this same issue i need to address in my car as well.

Well, if you're positive nothing is loose... than I'd take the route epistemology recommended. You could also try (depending on how you mounted the sub) positioning your box away from the back of the trunk (if that's where it's located). You may think it'll look 'off', but with a few 1.5" spacers (wood would be preferable), no one will be able to see the difference.

Hope that helps you in one manner or another. Good luck on getting it fixed!

This may sound silly but I had a lot of rattle on back dash without anything other then the stock audio... turns out what was rattling was not dash but the cover for the tools which is on the trunk lid - noise just seemed to come from dash - wouldnt hurt to check that both the spare tire AND the tool kit are securely fastened and tight
