I've got rattles not only from my speakers, but from the door lights. I haven't replaced the car stereo. I think that in a car with such a loud interior decibal level, I personally don't see much sense in putting in a high end stereo. I know others on this forum have a different opinion. To me, putting in a high end stereo would be like drinking warm beer - the product might be great, but I can't enjoy it in the context in which I am forced to consume it.
