    Bose Subwoofer

    I've got the full bose sound system in my 99 S3, the speakers are pretty good but the sub sounds awful sometimes. It distorts on most songs and sounds like it's rattling to pieces even if I turn the bass down to -6, it sounds even worse from the outside. Was wondering if anyone has any ideas to fix the problem. Do I need a new bose sub unit or do I somehow replace it with an aftermarket one, or would it be bodywork rattling to pieces instead?
