Light bar whistling

So i installed a 50 inch light bar today and was driving down the highway and heard a very loud whistling coming from it. Has anyone had this problem and if so how have you fixed it or did you just leave it?

My "doors off" mirrors do the same thing. I have gotten used to it, not very loud.

Go to pepboys and grab some black door trim, it's like $8 for two strips, then just slide it onto the cooling fins on the back of the bar. Depending on your angle you may have to try a few times to find out which fins are the ones making the noise. Mine is silent now

There are two or three threads floating around on the subject, a search should pull them up. Anyhow, the weather-stripping between a few light bar fins seems to do the trick.
