Many components are connected with the subwoofer and work in the subwoofer. Most little parts are very important for the excellent performance of our subwoofer. But we consider that these components have no ability for the performance of the subwoofer. 

Step 1

Please check the grill cover of the subwoofer. Make sure that the screws of the subwoofer should be tight. If screws are loose then you should tighten the screws on the perimeter of the subwoofer. it can make cause rattling of the subwoofer.

Step 2

According to my experience if you bring a magnet near a subwoofer. I create noise from the subwoofer. Because the magnet is already fixed in the subwoofer. So the external magnet attracts the frequency of the subwoofer. it can make cause rattling of the subwoofer.  

Step 3

The rubber is fitted around the subwoofer speaker.  It plays rule very important for our subwoofer. sometimes this rubber is broken/torn on the sides of the cone. It creates rattling in the subwoofer. When it is broken then we should change the rubber.

Some people like loud voices and bass. They do cross the limit of volume from the subwoofer box. The subwoofer is more affected when the volume is out of the limit so it lost its original performance and becomes the cause of rattling. We should be limited to volume. I think it can become the main reason for the rattling of the subwoofer box.

Subwoofer Rattles on Certain Songs?

When you listen to songs, please check your song’s qualities. for example, 4K video songs have good voice quality than HD songs. And some songs do have not good volume then try to listen to another song on the subwoofer. so that you may avoid rattling the subwoofer.

Some people don’t understand cable problems. They think that all cables are the same for the subwoofer. these cables can create a critical problem in the rattle of the subwoofer.

Input and output units

Input and output units

Sometimes the input and output units of the subwoofer (where we connect cables) are not working. if the cables are in good condition and properly working. In this case, something went into units. So the cables are not connected properly to units. the subwoofer creates noise.

You take a pin and rotated it into all units. If anything has in units. the bad materials will go outside of units. I hope in this case you can clear the issue about the rattling of the subwoofer. It creates problems when you don’t care about your subwoofer. A lite bit of a mistake can lose your subwoofer. Please care about your subwoofer.
