Correct...the "factory subs" are the addition of 2 6x9's in the rear deck. I have found that it truly only low frequency sound (bass) goes through them. In my Accord, they were just treated as regular speakers that picked up everything...made the sound kinda bad!

On a side note, is anybody else's rear center stop light rattling with the bass? It's starting to get on my nerves and I need a way to make it stop...other than turning the bass down.

Thanks for the clarification ColdFusion- I thought I'd heard that before but wasn't sure. I have a 12" in the trunk and my whole rear deck shakes- but doesn't make a vibrating sound. I had the same problem you're having with another car and I added Dynamat to the rear deck. It seemed to help, but was hard fitting it around all the "stuff" under the deck.

the same thing happend to me.we went to test drive the car and it didnt make noise then we told them we wanted the windows tinted and they took it to a place xtreme and when we got it back it made noise.they said it was because they had to take it out to tint the windows,so we took it back to them and they fixed it.so if you got the windows tinted take it back to them if not take it to the dealer.

Yeah man, same problem here.. bass sounds great but the rattling sucks.. I opened my trunk while i had music playing and applied upward pressure directly underneath the light and it stopped rattling and sounded great. I'm trying to think of something I could do without taking it to the dealer. Any suggestions?

I don't know, I may mention it at my first oil change to see if they can fix it.

...anyone know if there is a seperate amp for the 2 subs in the back? Curious minds want to know. I haven't had the rattle problem with the rear brake light fortunately. But the bass vibrates everything in the car...even the outside rear view mirrors and not a rattle.

Should be located on the driver side of the trunk. Open the trunk, pull back the carpet on the left side and take a peek. Atleast that is where it is located in the 500.

Yeah, they took mine off to tint the windows, I found the rattle, took it back off, put it on, took it off, put it on and it still dont work. I'm gonna shove a him in there or something to make it fit tighter or something.

I heard somewhere that the rear door speakers are the subs.It makes sence because they would each have thier own inclosure.The rear deck speakers would be better as full range ,as they are open air in most cases. 8) :klavergreg:

Actually the rear deck speakers would use the entire trunk as the enclosure, as in an infinite baffle installation, or free air as the industry calls it. And yes, Im talking about subs. As long as the front wave generated by the sub is seprated from the back you can achieve decent bass. I should include that the subs used in free air installs are typically made for such an environment and not all subs will work so well as free air.
