So I put a new system in my 95 Rivi the other day and am very pleased with it! I thought that I would need to get some type of sound dampener but she didnt need it!!
I got Focal Mids, Highs, and a 13" sub inthe trunk, with Alpine amps. I have a 400 watt amp runnin the highs and mids and a 400 watt amp runnin the sub.
I couldn't believe how perfect the Rivi held up to the bass test! Does anyone else notice that their Rivi has extra nice sound?
I have no rattle anywhere!! Not even license plate rattle!!

Yup ive noticed that too. I was worried about putting a sub in the car because i hate rattles , but my single 10" can shake the side view mirrors and the car wont give the slightest rattle , even though its not a very powerful sub at only 200w , i'm still impressed.the acoustics in this car are very good IMO.

Only rattle I had was the interior rear-view mirror. I fixed this with a tiny rubber O-ring used for assembling darts. I am very impressed with how loud the system can be playing, yet with windows sealed you can't hear the music outside the vehicle.
