When I leased my car I tested the sound of the base stereo vs. the Revel 14 on two dealer stock cars, using Radiohead’s newest CD.

“Burn the Witch” isn’t a bass heavy track but rattled the driver door exactly as described in this thread on the Revel system, so I didn’t go with that vehicle.

Clearly there isn’t enough bracing within the doors to prevent the excess vibration, something we can only hope to be fixed when we get the new Zephyr.

My 2017 has a rattle on the passenger side door when I play songs with certain kicks or deep bass lines. When I push on the arm rest part of the door it stops and sounds a good as the driver side door which is perfect. I noticed it probably a month after I got it which would have been the end of September. I'll likely get it looked at when I go in for my first oil change in April after a trip to Florida. I will likely get any front end rock chips fixed too since it will be a long drive.

Just an FYI, the song I was playing when I first noticed it was "the Other Side" by French For Rabbits. If you don't want the rattle you might want to avoid this song as it may have sparked the rattle, lol.


my '17 has the EXACT same thing on the exact same door and the exact same "fix" (pushing on door handle)
