Question Best Way To Attack the Rear Deck?

What's going on everyone?

Well, this summer I have been attacking the many rattles that plague my car. I have gotten rid of most of them, but the rear deck is still rattling. Ive noticed that the rear deck, or the carpeting and foam that covers it, bounces up and down like crazy when I play my music, and the rattling that I am hearing is coming from the noise of it bouncing on the metal below....

I finally got the rear deck covering off today and am trying to figure out what exactly to do. Basically with the rear deck covering off, it is somewhat apparent what is going on. Between the rear speakers, there are two fairly large cutouts in the metal frame of the rear deck. I assume that air being pushed by my subs is escaping through these holes and pushing the covering up, thus causing it to bounce around like crazy.

Now, what would be the best way to attack this problem?

Should I just cover the whole metal rear deck (frame, holes, and all) with sound deadening material and then put the rear deck cover back on?

Should I cut holes in the rear deck cover that match up exactly with the holes in the rear deck? Wouldn't this allow the bass to still get into the car easily, but alleviate the rattle?

Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated!

Try top-mounting the speakers like I did with my Ion. I added a 3/4" plywood stiffener between the steel and the upholstery panel. I can pump serious power into the top model Rockford Fosgate 6.5s with no vibration or rattle. Your rear deck looks much easier to deal with.

i had the same problem - i went with the quick fix: with the rear deck still on i just shoved a piece of cardboard wide enough to go between the speakers between the covering and the metal frame- keeps everything tight.

Yeah every time I would close the trunk the rear deck would bounce up and hit the glass. Dynamated and dynalined the entire rear deck no problems since, just get enough dynamat to cover the four big holes and you should be good.

...
My number one goal is to make my saturn better now than when I bought it in Dec of 1993. IMPORT FIGHTER

Not trolling, but I suggest you turn down the volume. You've found one of my pet peeves. People who think I want to hear their music.
