Wevs is pretty much spot on.
I started the a RF kit in my ‘15, and after tweaking the amp a half dozen times and still not getting what I wanted. I added polyfil to the pods, it sounded better to my ears and seemed to ‘thicken’ the sound a little. Next I sealed up the pods with RTV, except the drain hole, which I think sounded better, the mids were more pronounced and ‘warmer’ and the kick drum had a little more punch. Then I added a set of MMATS in lower speaker pods and did the ultra flash to enable the fader. Everything basically went to shit at that point. After a having the fairing off another 1/2 dozen times, I scored a deal on 2 sets of ARC MOTO 6.5s which replaced the RF speakers in the fairing. After some tuning I am basically happy. It has plenty of punch and volume while still being clear and crisp. It all depends on your ear and what you are trying to achieve. It also makes a difference what kind of music you are primarily listening to, I listen to hard rock, classic rock, and metal mostly, so the deep booming bass isn’t as important for a complete sound stage.
On another note, each speaker is different, some do well in larger enclosures and others in small. The amount of ‘back pressure’ caused by sealing or venting an enclosure also varies by speaker. So it all really comes down to a bunch of variables and your ears.
