Monticello posted earlier about the passenger-side speaker vibrations in the Miata, the result of a blown speaker. The speaker's done, all right, flatulently flapping around between its magnet and surround. But I found a solution: balance hard left and some old mono recordings, like these solo funk-outs from James Brown's band.

The passenger-side speaker on our 1997 Mazda MX-5 Miata project car exhibits major distortion now when you use any real volume.
To be honest, I initially thought this distortion was related to the door bars we had installed by Blackbird Fabworx. My guess was that the speaker was touching the bar, thereby causing the rattle, but turns out that's not the case.
