Usually when standing outside the car. The bass will sound better with the sound deadening in though. I don't really know for sure, I'm a car audio noob. I just don't want to sound like all the donks around Waco with their big subs in the trunk playing rap at high volume while they drive by you and all you hear is *ratttttle rattle buzz ratttttle*.

there's two vents on the side of the trunk behind the walls. kind of beneath the tail lights. they kind of look like this
except they're white. I've found that to be the source of my rattling, however i don't want to seal it because they're suppose to help open the trunk without too much suction. it is possible to replace it with just a metal vent or maybe some mesh, but those vents are definatly the main source of rattle. it's on both sides of the trunk

I'll look at them and see what I can do with it.
it can be replaced or just cut out, but i don't see how that would cause the rattle. Mine are plastic and stay in position, there's no movement to them...and there's no metal...

This week is my Spring Break. I have most of the week free, so I should be good to get some stuff done to the car.
^^It's my spring break too, so I also wanna get some stuff done. What else are you planning?
1998 MTX: Zetec00's White '98 Sport
Windows tinted. 35% front, 20% quarters and rear. 3M Color Stable tint. Pictures are kinda crappy with all the glare. I'll get some better pics tomorrow.
I wanted 35% all the way around because I didn't want it too dark. The guy at the tint place showed me a picture of a BMW with 35% all around and it was too light. The Color Stable tint reads darker than it is so 35% reads 27%. 25% is the legal limit for Texas on the front windows, so I couldn't do that any darker. He had a car in the shop they were doing with the shades I got. I decided that looked pretty good, so I went ahead with it.
You've been busy today, just like me lol. It looks good Nate. I've never been a fan of tint, but yours looks good.
Tint looks good. What'd you shell out?
Love the tint. I want to get both my vehicles tinted soon
