Looks like the only way to fix it will be to take the door apart. Is it resonating from the bass or is it sounding like the speaker is blown? My trim is also cracked but I'm just careful when removing it. Have you checked around the door to see if any of the clips holding the door card on have broken? You can run your hand around the bottom of the speaker and slightly pull on the door card and see if any of it has some give. If a clip has broken, the bass can make the door card resonate and the loose part will vibrate. If you do open the door make sure the speaker is screwed in all the way down to prevent further vibrations. I have aftermarket front components that have deeper bass then the OEM speakers and had to put Dynamat on the doors to stop them from rattling. They have a similar stuff at Lowe's and Home Depot called Peel & Seal that works in the similar way as Dynamat on the cheap.
