Rattling

As some may know I have replaced all of my stock speakers. I had thought that the front passenger side was rattling from not being mounted well so today I modified to stock speaker/bracket to hold my new ones and reinstalled them. Turns out that this was not the cause of the problem. After closer inspection it is actually the window crank that is rattling. I plan on converting to power windows next yr which will correct the issue but what can i do until then? Will putting dynamat on the doors fix this?

It will help, but may not solve. is it the door panel around the crank, or the actual crank itself?

Adding deadening to the door should help reduce the vibrations transfered to the crank.

Mine rattles too. I dont know if it is the speaker itself or if its something else. I hope to convert to Pioneers soon though but just have to find a blank insert to put in replace of the factory...
