Default 2013 Rearview mirror rattle

My interior rear view mirror rattles like a gooden. With the roush exhausts, and the 12 inch sub, it rattles at specific rpm's, and within certain frequency's to music. I don't blast my music, the sub helps to fulfill the sound. I could take it to the warranty but just don't feel like it!
When it rattles, I hold the mirror, and it stops. There must be some small thing i can do to stop it. Any suggestions?
Thanks
Joe

need to be more clear: does it rattle or just vibrate?

I have seen other folks have similar issues with their mirrors and had them replaced under warranty.

it vibrates pretty hard. seems as though the glass in the mirror housing rattles the housing of the rearview. if that makes sense

the mirrors are double hinged. have you tried playing around with that? I had a similar problem and that solved about 80% of it.

I'd take it to the dealership since you have a warranty. I have the Shaker Pro sub in the trunk and my car is loud as hell, no vibration mirror issues.

In my 2011 it is the wire bundle going to the mirror that buzzes.A little bit of paper towel in the hole into the headliner took care of it.
