Anyone have their door panels rattle when music is playing during cold weather? Anyone know the cause of this?
I'm thinking build quality. Don't get me wrong, I love my Spec V. But the cold weather rattling sucks.AsianJKim said:Yea, mine kind of does it, but i dunno what it is. Probably something loose..?
If 32f is water's freezing point then I guess maybe 20f or 15f (we're metric up here).Dav5049915 said:what kind of cold weather we talking about? below 0F ?
right now here (MA) its hovering around 32f for a while, my car seems to not rattle much at all, granted it has yet to see summer temps, and is very new.
Yes, in that cold of weather the car will rattle like crazy. Below 0 degrees C, the car is rather noisy.sukebegigi said:If 32f is water's freezing point then I guess maybe 20f or 15f (we're metric up here).
It's definitely the panel and not the speakers. It was 10c or 50f or something today with no rattles. Your theory about metal, plastic and cold is bang on IMO. I was just looking to see if other owners were experiencing similar.Kindfiend said:Generally, things get loose when it's cold. Metal and plastic shrink when cold, so any spaces that develop might give you a rattle. Check the area you hear the noise from and knock around it. Maybe you'll be able to pinpoint where its coming from.
edit: I noticed you said it's from the door panel. Check around the door and make sure everything is tight. If it is, take the panel off and check the screws that hold the speaker down.
When I first bought my 96 200SX, it had a very annoying rattle from one of the back speakers... turns out the paper cone had ripped.
I wonder if the dealer will hold true to their promise. Is this problem fixable I wonder.NickZac said:Yes, in that cold of weather the car will rattle like crazy. Below 0 degrees C, the car is rather noisy.
No condoms, no tic tacs. No Snoop Dog or 50 cent either. My bass is at +1 which is plenty for me. Yet the cold weather rattle persists.NoTTaSIN said:r u sure its the door, or something in your door panel, like a pen or box of condoms. cuz there is no reason it should rattle unless your pushin some serious beats,
bumpin so hard it makes your eyes rattle and blurs your vison :thumbup: .
