This used to happen to me all the time. I upgraded a 500w rms powering two 12's in a sealed box to my current setup which is 2 12's in a ported box (about 1.6 cubic feet each box) powered by an 1800w rms amp and that would happen all the time lol.

Put a little bit of gorilla glue on the mounting tab on the windshield and let it sit for a few hours and you should be good to go

Thanks jAmOMs!

Never thought about the gorilla glue, thanks for the tip 00impala123

Black Venom, there ever any impala meets around our area? I say our, because I live about 2 hours away, and Indy directly splits us.

Yeah, i've never been able to see out of it if i'm listening to music. it gets vibrated to s**t and just aims straight down. It just got to the point where it was being vibrated enough to come off. And, don't quote me on this, but I think you're required by law to have a rear view mirror.

lol, i quoted you on this...that might be true based soley state by state and per vehicle, my work van doesn't have one so there must be some type of rule for requirements. never thought of taking mine off but if i did i would look it up on my states regulation web page...
im not trying highjack but maybe we can use this page for trunk speaker set up pic's??? i had two 12'' rockford fosgates and sold them and i really miss that thump but i want to try something a little more custom than two speakers sitting in a universal box... pics anyone ?

Similar situation happened to me but the mounting tab took some glass with it both times. So now I'm just gonna wait till the window cracks or something to replace the whole glass.

I'm running 2 Rockford Fosgate P2D412's with a Rockford Fosgate P600.1bd amplifier. It's pretty loud but I want it to be louder.

Ah, I had P1's awhile back, pretty damn good for an entry level sub.
I too, always want louder.

Thanks americanmade, It sounded incredibly loud at the start but now It really doesn't seem loud and i need to go bigger. Twisted Evil

Mine does this all the time. Any way to make it stay on? It gets annoying having a hanging mirror, then putting it back on just to fall off again. I know one answer, dont listen to music as loud. BUT THATS NOT AN OPTION Twisted Evil

Same way I feel Cool
You could try globing some gorilla glue or something on the area where the clips slide over and "grip" the metal tab attached to the glass. The clips get loose every day, so I have to push the mirror back on to prevent it from falling down like it did.

I can tell you, it scared me a little when it dropped... Shocked
