Icon9 ceiling vibration help!

I have full dynomatt from front to back side to side installed in my lude so the sound is pretty solid around the whole vehicle. But when i crank my system the ceiling vibrates right behind my sunroof. if i just press my hand frimly to the ceiling the vibration stops. any ideas of what i can do to keep the ceiling from vibrating? how does the ceiling come out? i imagine if i could remove the ceiling i could put something inside it to absorb the vibration then attach the celing back on over it. Any ideas? the noise from the ceiling vibrating is the only stray sound coming from inside my car when the system is on, fix this and my interior is solid. thanks for your ideas anything would help

im fairly sure its just the actual interior roof panel thats vibrating, causing the noise. is that something i can take off so i can insert somthing to absorb the vibration? or do i need to remove the interior corner panels and stuff to get to it?

its been too cold recently and my garage isnt heated so i havent had much time to play with it yet

Re: ceiling vibration help!

yeah you need to remove those side panels to get the ceiling off and check what is that making vibration. I'm not sure if there more space to put something like foam to stop the vibrate..

Re: ceiling vibration help!

NO EXPANDING FOAM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


CHRIST!!!



Use a closed cell foam (like this <---link) to isolate the panel from the metal, or other plastic pieces. For a Large plastic piece it would not hurt to add some mass to it with a piece of constrained layer damper (aka Dynamat, Damplifier, CLD.) But even doing that is overkill. I doubt the sound you are getting is due to a resonant vibration of the panel, rather it is striking another surface.

Re: ceiling vibration help!

I have this same clicking sound. I thought I had it isolated to the ceiling panel contacting the side plastic panel but of course since I pressed on that area the sound hasn't come back in a few weeks

Re: ceiling vibration help!

The "ceiling" or "ceiling panel" is called the head liner. You can take it down to fix but you have to take everything off like the sun visors, plastic A and B pillar pannels and "oh **** handel" then you have to carefully pull the head liner down without creasing it. I bet if you put a thin foam pad under it it would work and the noise would be gone.
