    i need a better way to mount my amp.

    due to space, it HAS to be mounted on the box, but i can hear it vibrating really bad. Right now it is mounted on top of rubber washers, with another one in between the screw head and the amp. im thinking of placing a piece of dynamat underneath it, would this work? any other ideas?

    shove a t shirt underneath it

    worked for me because my amps back panel was vibrating. first thing is to find out whats vibrating in your amp. is it the internals or the panel?

    im not sure, i have a feeling it is the panel underneath it, i figured that if it was something inside rattling that bad, it would have stopped working by now.

    Re: i need a better way to mount my amp.

    Go to a hardware store and buy the blue foam insulation. Then cut out a size exactly the size of your amp, then mount the amp to it.
    It has worked for me in the past.

    Re: i need a better way to mount my amp.

    Rubber grommets where each of the screws go in. They provide a cushion and allow more air around the amp for better cooling.
