    Are you sure they are hooked up properly? +/+ and -/-?

    I believe so. When I did it I really didn't notice anything with them now that I got the car out of storage for the year it is noticeable.

    No they are not blown it does not sound like that it is like they are not in tight enough and they are moving when the bass hits

    Go get some foam weatherstripping and self-drilling sheet metal screws from Lowes or Home Depot.

    the impedance is wrong for the system. you need 2 ohm speakers for the woofers. Otherwise 4ohm's will do just that-flop around and not make much volume.

    Is there a way to get around this? Someone said foam weatherstripping then sheetmetal screws I am assuming into the panels will this work to get rid of that?

    It'll help get rid of any rattles that are caused between the speaker and panel it's mounted to, but, it won't do anything for the speaker impedance. You'd have to replace your head unit and bypass the monsoon amp, or replace the amp with something that is 4-ohm stable.

    So if I do this then install an aftermarket head unit and amp It should be ok. Can I connect these using factory wires or do I have to rewire everything?
