Speaker Rattle

The rear passenger side speaker of my D-90 ST rattles and vibrates when I play certain music. I don't think that it is the speaker itself because it is relatively new and if I hold the speaker box the rattle stops. Does anyone have any suggestions as to how I could stop the rattle or at least improve it? Thank you.

Rip them out the cheap plastic boxes and make your own (at least, that's what I'm doing).

My solution was to buy a set of pre-fabbed boxes, drop-in a set of 6"X9" speakers and mount them along the sides of the rear wheel housings.

Sounded much better than the stock speakers in the rears.

At least under 60mph, after that I couldn't hear anything anyway.
