Default Bass Rattle

So the first thing i did to my 6th gen was put my system in the back. I have 2 12" kicker vr comps and a 1000 watt kicker amp. But the rattle i get is worse than any car I've owned. I found the culprits to be the rear break light on the rear deck and the map map lights up front. Any suggestions on how to stop the rattle?

What about the map lights up front? I already fixed the rattle on the rear deck, and thought i fixed the rattle up front but it came back.

That's it for now. I was gonna put my double din Pioneer in but i don't like the look of after market stereos in our cars so I sold it to a buddy. I want to do front speakers next and i thinking about removing the stock subs on the rear deck to port my bass to the cabin. I think i may be getting rid of one of my subs too and going with just one. I want more trunk space.

Yeah, I removed my stock subs when I had a box, it helped. Then I ended up getting rid of the box too: Infinite Baffle Set Up A couple of guys went this route too.

I had to get rid of the stock HU, it was messing up too much. I didn't go double din though.

Hopefully my stock head unit doesnt go south on me then im really gonna regret selling my touch screen. The only complaint about the stock HU is the reception is horrible. But radio here in denver kind of sucks so i usually dont listen to it any way. I need to get my cat problem fixed and then im gonna poor some more money into the system. but seeing as its just sub in a stock system it sounds pretty good Minus that damn rattle of course

Yeah that would stink, but the typical way that they fail is that the drivers side sound starts cutting out. Watch for that.
