I have recently noticed my front left speakers adapter (Autoleads) has started to rattle a lot when my music is playing (at all volumes).

I have taken the door card off and checked that the speaker isnt blown (as thats what it sounds like) but the speaker looks absolutely fine (its an Alpine Type-S 17cm)

I tried to screw the adapter tighter to the door frame but it didnt really make much difference as the screws just kept turning.

Any ideas on what to do as the rattle is getting really annoying??!!!??

thanks in advance! :(

sounds like the adaptor is rattling mate. The screws wont tighten all the time for some reason (I noticed this on mine) could always try a bit of superglue behind them or locktight on the screw :shrug:

should work i reckon mate, alternatively pack it out a bit with cardboard behind the adaptor ;). As far as the speaker being blown, if you push lightly around the cone of the speaker, if you here a scratching noise its definitely gone ;)

get some bigger gauge self tapping screws then you have already got at the mo from b&q gauge means thickness of the threaed part incase you need to know, or you could take adapter off and run a bead of mastic round adapter and screw back in place and onece its set shouldnt rattle at all.

pretty sure it will bud, bare in mind though, it will probably take the silicon/mastic 24 hours to dry properly :thumbs:
