Well turn your subs up and go behind your SUV and listen for what is rattling.

could be the panel on your back door. you should be able to tell if you just listen to it from outside the vehicle.

Um, no don't let it rattle. Rattling of parts in your car really isn't GOOD.

This will sound funny, but I'm pretty sure that my new Assassins have rattled something loose in my passenger side door, and when I play the 5x7 Volfenhags alone, they rattle whatever is loose, but the subs don't...It's odd, so I'm going to have to check it out...

Who would have thought Volfenhag anything could rattle anything!

you could put some dynamate down but i doubt you will ever get rid of that rattle especially if you have a decent sound system

Most older cars/Suv's/trucks will rattle no matter what. There is not to much you can do,
except try to find what's rattling and screw it down tighter or re-glue it, or if you are from around where I live Duck Tape it. Ha

i laid down somde of the foam that is put under neath the carpet in homes in my trunk. Completely covered the entire trunk and now it doesn't rattle. Instead I now have something rattleing underneath the car.
