Sub rattles

Just got a subwoofer to go with my Playbar (and existing play 5, play3 and 2xplay1's + connect amp)...
I must say, I'm not that impressed - not only does it rattle at pretty low volumes but the bass seems pretty muddy.  Put it this way - for music listening, the Playbar and Sub don't come close to my Geneva Sound L for clarity and punch.
Has anyone else had the rattling issue?  Have I got a faulty unit?

Hello Jonathan,

The SUB shouldn't rattle when you listen to it- is it sitting flat on the floor or vertical? As a quick troubleshoot you could try moving the SUB to a different location in the room to see if you still experiences the rattling.

If you experience this again, I'd recommend that you call into our support line so that we can take a look with you. 
I have the similar issue. Especially when I played songs "Mistake" from Lake street dive
Did this get resolved?
I have just purchased a Playbase with sub (gen 2) and have the same rattle problem like it’s over powered when watching movies at 25% volume - eg any transformer movie or avengers
Not what I expect from a £700 piece of kit
I could understand if volume was at 70%+
When it’s not rattling it sounds great
Was there a resolution on this?
