I just moved my sub to another place in the room which is about a 500% improvement over where it was before, smoother, louder, more musical, and decreased presence of null spots. Problem is now the windows and doors rattle like crazy anytime I turn it up to a listenable volume. This is very annoying. :mad: Does anybody have some tips on how to keep things like windows from rattling without completely replacing them?

    Foam truck cap tape - works wonders. Slip in the noisy cracks and seams and behind stuff on the walls.

    wow... thanks Doc, that works great. Only problem is everybody who heard the system before thought it was a big cool factor to have everything rattling and shaking and jumping of the shelves like crazy and now they are dissapointed that everything is so "dead" and "quiet". Foolish mortals. :)

    I'm waiting for my goldfish to "surface" from U-571 depth charges. So far, they're doing fine. :)

    any auto parts store - sticky on one side, peel off tape covering protects the adhesive - like weather stripping

    Another foam product to try would be the stuff they sell to seal windows when you use a window A/C unit.
