Default Rattle problem fix with subs

So I have 10" sub in the back and I do like it loud bt now I'm hearing some rattling and it posses me off so much. Haha I think I found the problem today and it's the jack cover in the back and the rear slider window. Anyone have the same problem, what you do to fix it? I don't have any ideas.
Thanks

The jack cover , line it with sound deadner , as for the slider window I think you are going to have to live with that one unless you can figure out how to wedge the widow so it doesnt rattle

I mean, more info on the setup?(Just curious) My system rattles my truck apart but I just turn it up louder and ignore the rattle haha. You could go to Lowes and get you a roll of this stuff called "Peal and Seal" I'm pretty sure that's how you spell it. But it's $17 for a 6"x15' roll. You could cover your back wall with probably one roll and potentially get rid of a good bit of rattle. Use whatever is left over from the back wall and do your front doors too.

I stand corrected, the Peel and Seal stuff is $15 and comes in a 6"x25' roll. Here's a link for it:

Eh, not a fan of peel and seel. Tried it and it was not great. Now for most people on here P&S might do alright for them but it just doesn't have the acoustic properties that I want in my deadner.

No problem man. Oh and for what it's worth, I went and bought some P&S last night, installed it this morning, and it doesn't stick one bit. Here's a pic just cause I want to whore it off haha:

No. But only because I didn't have a chance to drive it yet. When you knock on the door and whatnot, it sounds a lot more solid though where the drivers side is hollow sounding and whatnot.

It'll do some for stopping rattles but if you're looking to truly improve the sound of your system it won't do want you're/I'm looking for. Deadner is not only used to stop rattles, its to improve the acoustic properties of your vehicle. Trust me, I've gone from no deadner, to P&S, to second skin on my doors and P&S to SS is no comparison. My mids came alive when I added real deadner to my doors. My favorite deadner for budgets is Edead. Of course I drive there and pick it up from them so that s saves me quite a bit.
