New System Coming, Will It Rattle Much?

So I bought some new 6 1/2's and 6x9s. I also got two pioneer 10s with a alpine amp 500watt. Is there some common places where the car rattles, and also what did you guys do for it.

license plate, rear view mirror, side mirrors, loose trim

dynamat is your friend
license plate: dynamat on the back, screw to bumber with 4 screws rather than 2

mirrors: havent tried anything, not THAT bad

loose trim: got new clips and pushed em all in really tight, no issues yet


common complaint is dome light as well, but I dont have one so no concern here.

Damn, yeah we just installed some my my friends subaru sounds a lot better. When you mean trim, you mean the front dash pieces and/or what sounds the doors?

The only thing that rattles on mine is the interior light cover, but then again I only have subs, with the stock speakers, idk how much difference better speakers makes

Future mods:

Where did you get your clips at? I have been removing trim pieces recently and one clip has come off while two others are about to come off.
