    Perhaps KaiNor's first language isn't English and this might be a misunderstanding...

    That'll be a week tomorrow since I got my car back and there's no rattles from the subwoofer or any of the front speakers. Sunroof is sorted also.

    Mine is going back in tomorrow - I've told them not to change the passenger-side front speaker as I'm certain thats not the issue (the rattle noises happen regardless of whether music is playing or not) and I've asked them to concentrate on the rattling noises through the cabin.

    Subwoofer and front centre speaker are sorted, so its just these annoying rattles to sort now.

    I tried that. It didn’t work. The creaking from my sunroof actually turned out to be the coming from the inner roof panel, not the sunroof itself. They padded up and replaced some clips in the roof’s lighting cluster and between it and the roof itself.

    I'm having horrendous rattles from the front passenger speaker, so I might be calling up soon as the car's still in warranty. I don't think it's a speaker issue but just something rattling, and I'm making some modifications to the car soon so might just take the door apart and put some dampening in to try and fix it myself..

    I'm also interested in potentially fitting B&O front speakers in my car. I read that somebody did the rear doors but haven't seen mention of the front. Anybody have experience?

    B&O I believe are also affected. I turned my bass to the centre which improved I don’t have any rattling now.
    If you go down the dampening route, post up some pictures and how much difference this made

    Yeah, my bass is in the center but it still rattles considerably. I also have a subwoofer installed and it's harming the quality of that considering there's no subwoofer control built in for some silly reason. I'm going to order some foam or dampening mesh off Amazon and give it a go at the weekend

    Heard someone mention not sure on this forum that you can download an app to try and maybe locate where the rattle is

    Tone generator? Yeah, could use that. I definitely know it's coming from the passenger door though, but it wouldn't hurt to try it to see if the OEM sub is rattling too

    I have the B & O 19 Speaker System - It still rattles from rear Sub and Front centre speakers. Makes the whole system sound cheap.
    I had a Q7 previously with 14 speaker BOSE and was perfect at any volume.

    You should get it booked in. I don't have the B&O system but they will probably pad out the sub to stop the rattling or your sub could be faulty.
