I recently change the door speakers in my 1999 w220 S320CDI.
They are good quality component PHD brand ones but the sound from it is strange and a rattling sound started coming from the center console (like a ripped speaker trying to do bass).
What is happening?!

Are the new speakers same impedance as the old?

I don´t know the impedance of the factory speakers.
I did not have a bose system in my w220.
It is quite strange as i have heard these speakers before and no rattling noise was present.

At a guess I'd say either your center speaker is knackered or the replacement speakers in the doors (I'm guessing you only replace door speakers) are of a different impedance and the center speaker is now being over driven.
