Are these after market speakers or original cloth trim covers. if they are aftermarket metal covers in a plastic rim a small amount of glue or double sided tape should keep them from moving, if they are cloth trim covers check the tabs at the back of the cover to see if they have broken due to wear. if the tab is still intact you will need to pop the door trim off and push the cover back into place then bend the smaal tabs back to meet flush with your door triim again.

On one of my speakers, bass frequencies break up, make a rattling sound.

This could be a defective cone, possibly "popped". Also, an inexpensive speaker may begin to rattle after having been driven too hard.

Rattling in left earcup

Sounds like you have blown out the cone on the speaker. Have you removed the covering to see if the speaker in that earphone is intact?

Can you fix a rattling speaker with silicone spray

Yes You Can. But its not recommended on subwoofers or any larger speaker that moves a lot. The only way this will work is if you can see the foam rattling and its not a huge rip.

Rattle when deep base played

If you can remove the rear cover check to see that the speaker mounting screws or nuts are tight. If they are the speaker is blown or defective. I would contact Boston Acoustics if it may be still under warranty or can be repaired. good luck

Sub makes rattling sound

You may have a loose speaker support in the speaker cabinet.
One of the speaker support screws may have come loose and is vibrating against the case.

I want to disconnect the factory sub-woofer from the factory radio.

generally the speaker cover panel will 'pop' off with a little gentle prying, giving access to the speaker itself which will allow you to simple pull the wire leads. I would suggest taping them so they don't cross and cause hiss in your system or rattle inside the speaker containment area.

Rear speaker rattles in 02 Montero Limited

That cover doesn't come off - It's screwed (4) from behind. You have to take the upper trim piece off (and handle) to remove the bottom trim piece and access the subwoofer. If your sub is like mine, the foam all the way around the sub has torn away, making it rattle. There are only 4 screws holding the sub in place, and it's sticky taped to the wall, so you may have to pry it off. Hope this helps!

Right speaker has a zzzzzzzz sound

Your speaker might have a loose housing. To check this, try shaking the speaker up, down, and side to side gently and see if you hear any rattling. If you do, and you are good with opening things and electronics, then look at the speaker all around and see if you see any screws. If you do, then take them out and carefully separate the halves, front, or back (it depends on where the screws are). If you do not, then there should be a way you can pop the front protective cover off that protects the speaker from foreign objects. You should be able to look through the second protective cover (if there is one) and see the speaker. Try playing something and see if you can find the source of the rattling. If you can see a tear or all that you see is the speaker shaking when you hear the sound and you did not here rattling, then you may need a new set of speakers. If you can, try to tighten the housing.
