Ok, So the wife wanted some bass.. I got 2 JL 10w0 and MTX Thunder 2301 installed for just under a grand.. Includes dynomat, and everything.. Problem is that the trunk rattles. It seems when I push the trunk IN, the rattling stops completely.. They recommended I use some type of weather stripping on the truck lid to match the factory stripping. Does this seem worthwhile? What does everyone else use? This was installed by Car Toys!

I have read all the articles in the radio forum. Thanks though.. I also have dynamat on the trunk lid.. I appears when pushing the trunk IN that the rattle stops. By pushing down, its not as much. Thanks for the reply though.

I have 1 layer of dynamate just on the inside lid. I would say its 1ft by 2 ft long? Should i cover the whole top of the truck lid, or just add more layers?

I've added up to four layers on problem parts. You need to knock on each inch of your trunk to see where more layers are needed.

Just a plain ole box bro.. nothing fitted or anything.. Wife just wanted to get something in the car.. If need be, I will purchase some raamat or dynamat or something, and put several layers, anything to remove the rattle... I dont think the bottom needs to be done since thats not where the rattle is coming from..

I had to have the latch adjusted tighter on my navigator to eliminate the hatch rattle.

Would purchasing the inner deck (trunk) lid liner help with deadening the sound vibrations? If so, this part can be purchased from your local Chrysler dealer. Although it's actually considered a '300C' part, it will in fact fit all '300 series' models. Also don't forget to have them order the plastic push pins which actually secure the deck lid liner in place. My total cost was less than $120.

your rattle is probably caused by the latch

when i had my dsm, i had to adjust the latch to have "pre-load" so it wouldn't vibrate, and i had to use lock tite to make sure it didnt come loose.

I used 3 layers of deadener on the rear trunk lid. I then used some carpeting between the trunklid interior panel and the trunklid itself to reduce the resonance of the interior panel. I also placed a layer of weather stripping where the trunk lid meets the rubber seal at the bumper. This tightened the fit reducing rattles even further.

If you have indeed read all the threads regarding deadener, you would find details on all the steps I've taken to reduce rattles. It's no easy task.
