Cool Updating my EQ flash....anyone else ever done this...???

So I just qot my 2017 RG special a month or so ago and love the Milwaukee 8 (other than the documented sumping issues), love the color, love the ride and all the good stuff that comes with being an avid RG nut....but the sound system still sucks...factory fairing speaker just aren't cutting it so upgrading:

Biketronics BT2180.15RG 2-Channel Amp with BT465 6.5" Titan II Speaker Kit

plus adding lowers with speaker pods and putting in:

HERTZ SV 165.1 MIDRANGE SPEAKERS FOR LOWERS

So one of the things I'm curious about is that Biketronics was telling me that I'll really enjoy the new setup and the change will be monstrous....but if I really wanted to go all out, I should change the firmware in my radio's EQ setting form the current 03_OFF.bin. to a much better quality 00_OFF.bin. flash...

Anyone else ever heard of this or done it and was it worth it in the end....???

I bit the bullet and have them sending out the download with my new speakers...just wondering if anyone has made the leap on here before me...???

Thanks in advance for reading and I'll be curious to read the replies....!!!

A lot of guys do that. It flattens out the curve. HD has a jacked up EQ curve which when you put an amp to it isn't all that good.

I had your exact setup in my 16. Minus the lowers. I did not flash my head unit because I didn't need to. The BT355 line levelers did the job. You'll have guys post here they did that and the reverted back as it sounded better before. Like everything else. Your mileage may vary. I didnt see a need for the flash.

I have that amp in my trike now. Love their stuff.
