    I have just recorded a track at a friends home studio. The recording sounds great on his studio system and on my system at home. However when I play it on my standard car system, there is a rattling in the left speaker in certain parts at a certain volume.

    I then put on popular bands like ColdPlay and Artic Monkeys and the buzz is absent. Why? And How do I remedy this.

    my song has bass, vox, elec guitar, drums and piano

    Turn it down or get better speakers.

    it's probably a headroom issue

    the pro tracks like ColdPlay have been mastered and have their dynamics heavily controlled so the average listening level are relatively high

    your tracks probably have high peak levels relative to the average levels and so you turn up the volume and the peaks are rattling the system

    Sounds like the bass levels are too high. $*^t stereos tend to 'fart' when there's too much bass.

    Wow, you really know your technical jargon!
    Why don't we all act like respect doesn't have a place here, maybe we can get more done?
