Polyfill batting questions

Should I use it ?
Where should I use it ?
How do I use it ?
What exactly does it do ?

In the middle of my audio project adding (4) polk dxi 6.5's and a set of 6x9's to the lids and was wondering if this could help my system out in any way. Thanks

I used it in my lowers with hawgwired xz 6.5's and to be honest I didn't noticed any difference at all. For shits and giggles i pulled all of it out of one and left it in another and it sounded the same.

All you do is pack the speaker hole with polyfill and your done. The sad thing is I used polyfill out of one of my daughters stuff animals lol...... She was throwing it away,but I still felt bad about it.

I thought about stuffing my fairing with poly after changing my amp. I didnt because I was worried about air movement in there and making it even hotter in there in the hot summers down here.

If I have to explain ,you wouldn't under stand anyway.

I got a roll of the small batting and wrapped my inner fairing speakers.... in theory it's supposed to slow down the sound waves and make it perform like it's in a larger enclosure.... It doesn't even come close to touching the amps so I don't think it will cause any temp issues... I just secured it with a couple long tie wraps one around the speaker adapter and one around the magnet...

Cover entire inner fairing, hey I have 2 brand new, unopened 3M packages of polyfill. I got it when I was doing my upgrade and went overkill, still leaving me with 2 packs..... i went overkill cause of the sale my local auto store had on it. I believe these 2 packs will cover the inner fairing, but If u would like them I will offer them to u at the same price I paid for them, $15 a pack, $30 for both + shipping. They are normally $35-$40 a pack locally.
Heres my inner, this is before I swapped out to the 3m brand, this was a cheaply made, cheaply bought knock off that sucked. Love the 3 m though. If u went and road before polyfilling the inner than went again once you installed it, the music is...... Hmmm.... Cleaner, louder, more tone..... Best way I can think to describe it.

Heres the 3m stuff - each pack is 50cmx50cm or 1ft6/7 x 1ft 6/7

My J&M Rokkers came with that stuff and I put it on and the first thing I noticed was it was much harder to put on the outer fairing because the 1 inch thick poly make contact with the speakers and the glove boxes on both sides and I had to force the outer on bike. When I pulled the outer back off a couple of weeks later you could see all the indentations in the poly where everything made contact. I pulled the poly off and now the outer fairing is as easy as pie to install.
I did not notice any change in audio quality with the poly in or out.

Interesting, I had been reading on other forums and keep hearing it mentioned like it was the greatest new invention

thats why when you put the polly down you cut it out where the speaker magnets hit before buttoning everything back up....... not hard

Are we referring to the polyfill as dynomat? I did my original outer fairing with dynomat when I upgraded the oem speakers and put the inner fairing speakers in. Music sounded good but can't honestly say how much better it did than before. I did notice the the outer was heavier but I figured that was just the. Ost of doing business.
