Speaker upgrade-vibration in door

I recently replaced the door speakers with a pair of Polk db652 speakers and the Dynamat speaker kit. Installled by local Best Buy shop. The additional bass these generate is causing an audible vibration in the driverís side door. Returned it to Best Buy with no resolution. Another local shop was not interested in helping me out, so I think the only solution is to do the job myself, but Iím not sure I have the nerve to disassemble the door panel, handles, etc. Also, I would like to have a good idea of the solution before going in and have all materials, additional dynamat and tools on hand.
Vibration appears to come from the area of the door latch. I would appreciate any guidance on how to get this done without damaging anything.

Hmm, can you take off the cover behind the door handle and check they put the screw back in. Without that it would rattle badly
