    I don't have a solution for you, but I've got exactly the same problem. When my Paradigm Servo-15 starts a-rumblin', the high hats in the ceiling start a-rattlin'.

    How about caulking the rims of the cans to the ceiling drywall?

    I though about that but i wasnt sure if the heat from the light would mess up the caulk.

    Same problem here with my servo-15. I just added little bits of cardboard (my fixtures do not get so hot as to ignite them)between the rim and the drywall. Try using the Avia Sub tones to find rattles in the room, then you can eliminate the vibrations as you walk around finding them.

    Is the rim rattling against the ceiling or is the light rattling against the rim?
