okay, so i have a ford ranger with a single 15 fi btl in it tuned to 32 hz with about 3800 watts going to it. i have previously braced my roof but now i am building up so much pressure that now the roof and my braceing is slapping each other...
i really want to get this fixed and i am thinking about maybe using this big stretch silicone that stretches so that it won't break apart
that should do the trick but i want some other peoples advice! finals is a week away and i plan on beating my record of a 150.33 average this coming weekend!

Cut some MDF and use plenty of loctite to brace your roof really well. If that doesn't work consider using some steel bars and welding it to your roof.

id do expanda foam in the brace area...that shouldn't hurt your score and quiet it down some

something along those lines is what i'm thinking... for some reason my roof doesn't like to be braced solid it needs to flex but its also my daily driver and going down the road like that its almost embarassing lol

thanks man! i have worked hard on this system... i have gone all the way from a 146 average up to a 150 in just a couple of shows...
FCBC goes like this:
1st run is 15 seconds at the kick on music
2nd run is 30 seconds on the window on music
3rd run is 45 seconds at the head on music
during finals they add 15 seconds to each round... lol
