Speaker Rattle??

I just replaced all 4 of my speakers in my JK and of course, one of them has a slight rattle to it with certian bass frequencies when turned up.

Its the driver side dash speaker, which took me hours to replace (a royal PITA) and I'm having a hard time determining if its the speaker rattling, or if its the screws not being tight enough that mount the speaker to the pod.

any ideas on how to solve this problem? maybe its a piece of trim rattling, but it sounds like its more directly coming from the speaker area.

so if i were to press down on the side of the speaker bracket while its attached to the pod, it should cut back on the rattle or stop it completely right?

i just don't want to remove that speaker pod because it takes forever if its not a loose screw holding the speaker to the pod.

they are in the same location as the TJ speakers, but they are 6.5'' speakers and the drivers side is a real pain in the ass to get out
