Did you notice any difference in the sound?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...
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.
Just got to work this morning and what a ride. I stuffed the polyfil into the speaker holes, right behind the woofer cone on my rokker 7.25s and in the garage it sounded better once I buttoned everything back up. But on the street, it is definitely more noticeable. The bass can actually be felt in the fairing now and the thump is cleaner and more pronounced. It was well worth the $3.63 I spent on a bag of it. Hell I only used two handfuls of it so I practically have an entire bag remaining. I think you should definitely try it. It makes a difference in my opinion.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
Its a loose material...the same stuff thats in teddy bears and pillows. I just stuffed a handful into the holes around the woofers. Made a huge difference to me.I was deff talking about polyfill I think the one guy earlier in the thread was referring to sound deadener. So how do you keep it on the speakers ? Is it more of a loose material like say a bunch of cotton balls or is it made into more of a sheet that stays together. Anybody got a pic of the bag theirs came in.
