Exclamation New speakers; now how do I shut the door up?

I just put in Focal speakers. They hit much harder than the references I had before. Now anytime there is any amount of bass, I have terrible rattles in the doors. I am getting new snap clips to replace the broken ones around the doors.

I am wondering if I should Dynomat. And if so, where should I place it? I am hoping that once I get the new clips in and center door plug the rattles will go away.

What do you guys think, and what have you guys done?

you can always get double sided tape open the doors and listen for the rattles. also find some kind of shim and put them in place using double sided 3M emblem tape. but keep in mind you can spend many many hours chasing rattles.

Forget Dynamat. Go with B-Quiet Ultimate. Out performs Dynamat and is less expensive.

I've used Dynamat Extreme in my '06 Accord that has a sub in the trunk. Big difference. I don't care for bass that will make your ears bleed, but the Dynamat really helped kill the rattles. I've also put it in the doors and it does make a difference. I bought the material on eBay and saved a lot of money.
