Hi guys, I have a 2011 RRS and when I bought it a month ago I assumed the subwoofer in the tailgate was blown. So i got another one and it sounds just as awful and rattling like the original. What else could be going on here? Amp? resistor/transistor? Not sure where to start looking...thanks in advance :)

Is it actually the replacement sub that is "rattling" or is wiring, lock rods, latch linkage, license plate...

The interior trim panel is typically whats rattling in the gate of a sport. The clips need replaced each time you open it up or it floats off the gate just a hair and any little vibe from the sub makes it sound like a coffee can full of nails. If you want to narrow it down you can open the gate with a bass driven song and start pushing on the panel in places and see if it stops.

It sounded like that as soon as I connected it without screwing it back in. There was sound, but as soon as any kind of bass hit the speaker itself sounded terrible. So I thought maybe it needs to be reattached first so I did, and that didnt really help either. :(

Did you ever get the answer from the dealer?

Having same issue with my 2010 supercharged (which is still under warranty CPO so want to have it addressed). I took off the rear carpet panel and still rattled - sounds like a blown speaker. I just unhooked the plugs to the sub for the time being as it was driving me crazy.

I also have a 2010 SC with the same issue. If it is clips, I will gladly just order some.
