    Hi,

    Has anyone experienced a rattling in the rear (middle I think) speaker on the parcel shelf? Tracks with a lot of bass seem to cause said rattle, and when I put pressure on the casing, it seems to stop leading to my rather ill-informed conclusion that I haven't blown the speaker!

    Does anyone have any recommendations to resolve this?

    I get this on the coupe, where heavy dub step drops cause the whole back shelve rattle.
    Never resolved it, either turn the sound down or reduce bass output.

    Annoying. I thought I'd have a root around in the boot to see if I could access the speaker, but I couldn't find how to access it. Have you tried?

    Nope, because its my wive's car and I barely get to drive it, and she never has the music loud enough to cause her a nuisance ;)

    @cinek- Haha fair enough!

    Anyone else know how to access the speakers in the parcel shelf? I've got some padding I was thinking of adding around the speaker housing.
