Decided To Remove the Old Audio

Ok i have a 2000 Celica GTS and i have been driving around and i noticed that when i stop and have my car idling while i run into my house. I come back out and i hear BOOOM BOOOM BOOM and it is like an echo from my door handle. Like it happens when the volume is turned up. So if it is something with the stock audio components can you guys refer and audio parts i can buy for my soon to come up birthday. I am getting a new set of rims too so i wanna keep this below lets say... $250 (USD)

welcome to rattling door handles!

Nothing you can do about it by changing the speakers, it's the loose doorhandle.

Can't use dynamat, because the rolled down window will still transfer the vibration.

Check the TSB section for a .PDF file documenting a fix. I did it, and it still rattles.

So, I glued the door handle to the car using a 2500 per sq. cm epoxy.

and sung with exultation
To know even one life has breathed easier
This is to have succeeded.

Dynamat brotha. I'm also not sure, when you say audio parts are you talking about shit to make the rattling go away or do you want new speakers etc? Cause if you want new speakers, you aren't really gunna be able to get a nice set that will stop the rattling for under $250. Some higher priced speakers don't cause as much rattling.

I have no idea what you guys are talking about. I have a Kenwood 50x4 Deck, and 2 10" Alpine Type-E Subs being pushed by a 800-watt Kenwood amp, my door handle doesn't "echo".

^It all depends on the sound output the deck/speakers/subs put out. Some decks put out lower frequencies which cause distortion and rattling a lot more than higher frequencies will. My eclipse cuts out most distorting frequencies so the sound is clear and rattling is minimized. You may also be able to minimize the rattling slightly by adjusting the sound settings on your deck. But it all depends. Some set-ups are more prone than others, some cars are more prone than others. Dynamat always works though.
