    I have a drop ceiling in my lower level and am getting buzzes and rattles during intense LF effect scenes. Am wondering whats the best way short of replacing ceiling[​IMG] to quiet these annoying noises down ?

    TIA

    Dave,

    This is from Armstrong: Clips
    Several clip designs are available to suit applications such as fire resistance, wind uplift and impact. Fire-resistance rated designs have exact requirements, including the mandatory use of hold-down clips for acoustical panels or tiles weighing less than 4.9 kg/m2 (1.0 pound per square foot). For rooms with significant air pressure differential from adjacent spaces, retention clips may be necessary to retain panels in place.

    I assume these should hold panels tight to the grid, eliminating rattle. No experience with them though.
