I think the squeaking was coming from the base and tightened the screws, which seemed to help. The rattling however continued and seemed to come from the side of the tower (inside) and up near the cap of the tower. Has anyone had anything like this happen to them?
FWIW, that song is LOADED with tons of very deep bass. Knowing this, I would have been a little more cautious at first and perhaps turned the bass down. This recording is capable of doing damage to a speaker. I hope your speaker is okay...did you keep the box and packaging?
