While listening to music a little louder I witnessed a rattling noise in my speakers (especially in the left speaker) when bass notes played, so I proceeded to double check with Youtube bass testers and found out that the rattling sound was present from around 120hz to 55hz.

I do not think this is supposed to be like this so I will send them back, but I wanted to know if it is a normal thing with these speakers and if any other eris e4.5 owners had the same problem.

Either the spider has loosened up or there is warping of the cone near either the edge/near the center pole and voice coil.
It's not a manufacture specific issue, there a number of factors that could cause this. Have them checked by the seller under warranty.

I had this same problem with my Eris. I took to my local handyman that fixes washing machine, tvs and stuff like that. He fixed the problem and told me that it was a blown capacitor that needed to be replaced (motherboard was overheating as a result). Hope this helps.
