The correct way would be to install some sound deadening to add weight so it wont rattle as much. If your looking to do it on the cheap, I read on this forum where someone cut up some sponges and wedged those in strategic places to stop the rattling. I have an 08 Camry and went the sound deadening route. Hope this helps

you have to take out the whole rear deck and apply sound deadening. I have a 09 camry LE and that was the most annoying noise after i installed my system. So i apply sound deadening in the rear deck now most of the rattling is gone, there is still a little bit there but not as worst as before. It might also be harder to take out the rear deck because the SE models seat don't fold down. i believe you have to remove the seats.

yea, i was able to pop off the whole rear dash without having to remove the seats. just pop off the rear pillar covers and lift the tray straight up, but only works when you first remove the rear headrests. i was able to stick a few thick pads in certain places, but i havent exactly found the sweet spot to eliminate the vibration, and i dont trust taking it to toyota for them to mess with and i doubt they will do much to fix the problem. ill take pics tomorrow when i take the rear dash out again.

ok, i pop open the back dash again today, and pretty much took some old micro fiber clothes folded them so thier nice and thick and shoved them under the dash in random places to see what would work. so far no luck and the vibration is still there, not really sure what else i can do. the noise is coming from around the 3rd brake light and from bass it hits the glass is one of the reasons, and another area is from the rear of the deck where it meets the glass. we'll heres some pics if it helps and any suggestion would be great. i got the jbl upgraded system for a reason, to have a good sound and mid bass, but this vibration just kills it.

any suggestions would be great. sorry pics isnt really in order but you get the idea.

Maybe, just maybe, if people didn't play their stereos loud enough to be heard three blocks away, they wouldn't have vibration problems.

While I appreciate this point of view, I actually have this vibration problem even when I don't have my stereo on and even before I installed an aftermarket sound system. At this point, this vibration problem happens constantly when I am on a bumpy or cobblestone road.

As a side-note, my system is not earth-shattering by any means. It has a 10-inch subwoofer that is purely there to reproduce an accurate sound stage and even range of frequencies... Not to be a bass-thumping, house destroyer.

i understand your view, but the rear dash should not vibrate at all and my music with the jbl system i have the volume at 26-30 with the bass at 0, i dont think thats blaring loud. the new plastic rear dash is a POS, and after fiddling with it for an hour or so, i came to the conclusion that its pretty much impossible to fix the rattling issue, only eliminate a portion of it and only way to get rid of some of the rattling is to stuff something inbetween the rear dash and the metal frame under neath. in my situation the rattling/vibration came from like 2-3 different spots in the rear dash, and i just stuffed some old crappy folded microfibers in there and fixed it a little, but theres not really much more i can do.

If the rattling is not solved by additional insulation, has anyone tried to place some thin black felt tape or similar along the window between the rear deck and the glass?

thats one of the problems, the edge of the 3rd brake light taps the glass. i wedge a microfiber cloth between them and seemed to eliminate the noise, now i just dont know what i should put in between there that would look good and not tacky.

ok this is extremely appreciated for all members who are contributing on this problem,
so far i still have a good amount of Dyna -mat left from my trunk
well what i plan to do is pop out the two on the side, like how the picture shows
then rip out the middle like the picture ...
thenn stuff dyna mat to the big dash and sides,
going to stuff enough to make the best as i can sometime this week or upcoming weekend
since most of yall stick the cloth or microcloth ima try dyna mat, i'll tell yall the results as soon as i do it and take pictures too.

Man this pos is truly bothering the hell outa me, Every time my bass hits when turned around 25s and up on volume

I have the stock non-JBL system, and if I turn it up a bit (high 20s to 30ish) there will be nasty vibration. I faded the speakers forward a bit to stop this, but I think this winter when I put the system in, I'm going to hit that area with a lot of deadening, along with the trunk and doors. If I get really ambitious (which is not likely) I will also layer CLD (constrained layer dampener), Closed Cell Foam and Mass Loaded Vinyl to kill off some of the road noise. Two areas of noise irritation are road noise (possibly related to tires) and that back deck rattling.

I'm not really about vibrating the whole block, just want to have (cleaner) sound in the car.

i applied second skin sound deadener(which is like dynamat) underneath the whole rear deck underneath that cloth thing they got there. I applied some along the edge near the glass, that way when you put the panel back it pushes the panel along the glass. I still get a little bit of rattling because i got a aftermarket sound system.

is the rattling still coming from the rear deck from your subs? or the rattling is from something else? thinking about a sub, but i dont wanna make that rear deck vibration worse even though a good majority of it is gone from me stuffing stuff under it.

Rear Deck cover

Haven't noticed any rattles from my XLE, but I added a mat across the rear deck to protect the plastic from the sun shining through that huge rear window. Wanted a thick fiber type to help isolate trunk and rear-tire noises somewhat, too. Found exactly what I was looking for - a cut-to-fit "replacement auto carpet" at Big Lots ($8.00, and you only need half of it). I wouldn't use this as carpet (it is basically an open-weave fiber mat with no backing), but it works well as a deck cover. It also reduces reflection off the deck when the sun is at a low angle behind.

The mat on top of the deck deadens high frequencies from the speakers a little bit, but it is hardly noticeable. I'll bet 1-2 layers underneath the deck would work well to help with the rattling problem, too.

One other thing I did to block trunk noise was to stuff a foam rubber block in the pass-through opening. This may have some effect on the sound, too, for all I know, reducing interference from the rear of the speakers.
