why would you turn the gains down to stop a window from rattling? Im not sure if dynamat would do much either becuz its glass. Can you hear it when you are in the car? i wouldnt worry about it if you cant

well, u see thats the thing, my bass has a nice clean sound until i wanna turn it up to about half volume, then the sound of my window just ruins the song im listening to. from the outside of my car, its alot louder than my license plate (and u know how much those can rattle)

your best bet is to probably re-seal the window, whether you do it yourself or not, if you do, make sure you clean the surface where they window lays, etc.. scrape it all off.. .

Do have the sub on the top of the box facing up or on the side? That might be a factor as well. Prolly not much if it is.

u could go to the hardware store. get a house window seal, foam thats sticky on one side, usually a 1/4" wide roll of about 20'. stuff some of that between the window and it should help. if not, u only spent about 2 bucks.

#1 How close to the glass is the box move bos around to see if it helps
#2 try to pad the bottom of the box it might stop it or help a lil
#3 try to tighten the rear window down it just might be lose
#4 check your seals they coild be old and need replacing
#5 sound deaden any panels that you can around glass (removable panels do inside) use fiberglass to attach wood battens in areas in panels to absorb some of the bass frequency!
