Dash Rattle From Subwoofer.

Recommended Posts

Crew,

I added an Exile XI12 sub to my 2010 Vride and I am having a problem with dash vibration. I know there is a thread on this somewhere but I couldn't find it. I've got some play between my dash and windshield (especially on the driver side) and need something to fill the gap. I definitely have enough bass to drown out the vibration but it's annoying when im listening to it at low levels. I was wondering what ya'll used to take care of this? Im not really wanting to take the windshield off but I got plenty of time before spring according to that freakin groundhog. Thanks in advance!

Can't remember exactly where the thread is either, IIRC people are using weather stripping or foam between the windshield and the dash. You may have to remove the windshield to do it correctly. Some of the audio junkies will probably have better ideas.

Found this older post - here.

I have a similiar rattle, though I'm not sure it's coming from the windshield /dash area. I plan to work on it soon.

:plus1: If you do it right you won't see anything and the rattle will be gone. The dash moves and is squeeking/rattling against the windshield. Went through it on my 06'vlx.

Just like a car when you have two surfaces rubbing making noise a little CCF (closed cell foam) between them will take it away. Depending on the size of the gap there are plenty of different cheap ways to acquire it.

Thanks guys! Picked up some foam weather stripping from Walmart. Works like a charm!

You didn't happen to take a picture of the weather stripping by chance?
