Rear View Mirror Vibration Mod

I just had a subwoofer installed and my rear view mirror basically "melts" out of position. I was wondering if there was a mod I could do other than removing the mirror from the vehicle to relieve this issue.

Well, if your subs can vibrate your mirror off think about what that's doing to your ears lol. Anyway they sell sticky tape/glue stuff made for rear view mirrors at eurozone and such

The mirror isn't falling off. It's moving out of position.

Is it just vibrating or actually moving to a different position on the windshield

The mount stays in place. The part of the mirror you can move and adjust vibrates down and out of position.
