03Ruth I took the lens with me to lowes and got an o ring that fit snug around the lens. Put it back in and hasnt rattled in two years!

LouieDelTorchio I also took off the light lens and it stopped too. Once i put a sub in though it stopped even with the lens on because i set my speakers to 0 bass, relying on the sub only for bass.

socrtom I took off the light covers and added 3 clear silicone pads (normally used for cabinets, lamps, etc) per cover, snapped them back on and all vibration is gone! A lot less work and has to be a lot less hassle than dealing with any gels.

Bass at 110%, volume at 11!

Hensman I just took off the plastic cover on the light and put some tape on the little tabs that snap it in to make it more snug and it worked and has been working for a couple of months.

whitesport I too have the same problem after installing amp and subwoofer. I may have to try that silcone spray idea. Thank You!

Mrmikeypoo I found that my dome light lens rattles. Havent figured out how to cure it without destroying the light.

jwm1986 I took mine off for this problem and found out it's not even a solid piece. The sides are just bent together. So I siliconed all the edges and where the dome light mounts (the inside part that screws on). Then stuffed some pillow stuffing in the middle to sort of seperate the sides. No rattles and better mid range response was my result. I'm happy. Although I don't know what did what...

Haven't ran into that problem yet but you may want to try some sound dampening material inside the enclosures on your sound bar. Look for some polyfill over at Parts-Express.com - Speakers, Speaker Building, Home Audio and Video, Pro Audio, Electronic Parts & Accessories PARTS EXPRESS, Speakers, Speaker Parts, Guitar speakers, Bass speakers, Woofers, Drivers, speaker upgrades and replacement speakers. Emine.
