    I have two large subwoofers in the trunk and my rear deck moves up and down about an inch and I need to know if anyone has tried to remedy this

    Bluetack? Take one sub out?

    seriously though, Is your car a hatchback? If it is then I guess its the parcel shelf is moving. I would then try velcro it to hold it down. At least it can be unattached when opening the boot.

    If its a saloon, Is the problem your having with the carpet/board that runs by the back window above a metal frame? If it is, that's caused by too much air pressure. Ideally You would then need to seal the underneath of the boot. Most audio companies would srtip the boot out cover it with self adhesive sound deadening material covering all holes etc to create a sealed chamber. You may only need to do the underneath of the rear trunk and the sides.

    Alternatively velcro it down.

    No Probs mate. Velcro will sort it out but sound deadening will definitely give you a better sound.
