Default CAI heatshield resonance

Do any of you have any issues with your heatshield resonating under WOT at high RPM'*? It'* starting to annoy me and it makes my engine sound bad.. My plexiglass I used for the heatshield is about 1/8" thick and it'* covered in reflectix. It only resonates when I get to over 6,000 RPM.. It makes my car sound like the engine is about to blow up. Would some heavy matting like sound deadener maybe help out? am I the only one who has their car do this under WOT? the intake is LOUD under WOT... so loud the sound waves are what is causing the heat shield to resonate.
