Default bass-induced rattle

the rear speakers in my supercab 4 door (in the door) make the door-mounted front seat belt tensioners rattle at frequencies below around 70 or so Hz. the speakers are 3-way pioneer 6x9s. its really annoying lol, if anyone can give me any ideas to make them stop, I'd appreciate it. I was thinking something like mounting the speakers on some sort of foam to stop the transmission of frequencies through the door, but then I read about using a damper in the middle of the door panel to kill vibrations, and now I'm confused thanks in advance.

turn the base down if you dont like it. or you can detonate it with a foam or mat like hush mat or such products really help with that
