    The way I see it, is a stock stereo hits bass at about a 2/10. A properly set up woofer hits it at a10/10. A clean, high end well driven and supplied speaker hits bass at an 8/10.

    There is a massive price point difference and amount of interior space lost to power a subwoofer for a minute gain in bass that can only be appreciated with a small percentage of songs and only when played on a high volume.
    Plus everything is such ****ass quality in the Mirage. I already had to stuff matting and insulation everywhere and silicon trim together for the sew door speakers, god knows what would have been involved with stopping a subwoofers rattle
    Interesting. I ran my RF kit without the subwoofer for a day and got it in the following day. The subwoofer makes a big difference in sound. Also, my subwoofer never rattles, even with stuff stacked on top.

    Everything about our car rattles. It is not aging well in any capacity. It's a very cheap car that is showing its age and wear and tear. If I had to do it again, I would NOT have driven it across the country. It was not ready for that at all.

    I gave up on it a while ago. I really only hang around these forums because the Micra forums only get 1 post every week or so.

    How many km's are on your car? Can you pin down what is rattling? I have zero rattles and a fair bit of mileage on my car. And I have a lot of junk in it.
    Zero, 2014 ES Plus 5MT, written off but not forgotten.
    Zero II, 2014 SE, 5MT, climate She's HOME now!
    Shelby AKA "Cute", 2017 ES 5MT, A/C.

    Mirage owners look at the world differently than everyone else, but in a better way
    We're driving the Beetle of the 21st century, the greatest small car now available!

    This is something that I plan on adding ASAP. The speakers are too weak and not loud enough in my opinion. Itís nice have the apple car play but this RF system should come as standard equipment for us music junkies and younger crowd!!
