Question How to stop bass vibration


Active Member
I'm in a bit of a pickle, I'm finding that my subwoofer (svs pb1000 with isolation feet) is causing the back of a cabinet to vibrate like crazy and it's really distracting.

I've tried a sub crawl and where I have the sub is my optimal position and I can't move the cabinet due to size etc.

The back of the cabinet is just a thin layer of mdf that slots into the back of the cabinet (Ikea bought) hence the rattling of the piece when bass hits it.

Any ideas how I can go about making the back either more sturdy or can I cover it in something like foam etc to prevent this?

Please help!! It's annoying the crap out of me now

Use some construction silicone to glue it. Cheap and easy to install and remove if needed, also easy apply more, if needed .

Have a look at the mastic panels they sell to deaden car door panels. This will add the required mass to prevent the vibration. A piece of closed cell foam will also work and you can buy this with a self adhesive backing.
