so i was bumpin my system and going around and tightening screws and what not about 5 minutes ago. so i got to the trunk and it rattled so much, like the rattling overpowered the bass. So i started to look at it, look at the mounting points and listen. so i was looking around when i got to the middle of the spoiler, the main cause is the strip of LEDS rattling around in there, when i hold the red peice [which is silocon sealed by me] the leds stop vibrating and the bass is gone!, now my question is, how in the heck do i stop those little ****ers from rattling?

are you sure its just the LEDs? you sure your hand isnt absorbing the rattling?(i only ask cause my car is a rattling machine and ive tried many things and still havent gotten rid of it...i gave up a long time ago)

i would just take it off, silicone all behind it and around the edges and re-install it. then just wipe off the excess

how is dynamat supposed to stop the LED strip from rattling

I think the only thing you can do is like double dynomat the trunk, I mean the whhhhooooollllleee trunk.. and that probably wont even stop it.. its just the alty that rattles.. cant change it.

and you can hear the rattling from the driver's seat? dude just get something that you can put in there, small enough and not harmful to anything that will sort of hold them up just like your fingers, try it out. use something like paper or foam or anything that wont break down over time. or just get a new brake light for your spoiler maybe yours is bad anyway

get a trunk kit, dynomat the trunk, and use little leftover strips and do the light, kill two birds with one stone

however, i personally think that dynomat does not work in all cases

I used expanding foam spray inside the trunk lid framing, and dynomat on the flat spots.
