Is there anyway to fix the lively cabinet issue? Fiberglass stuffing? Add some cross bracing?

I have the Polk Audio RTI A3s, their small RTI A5 towers and the matching CSI A6 center. Silly me! I did not know I needed $300 cables from Audioquest before the A3s would sound good. I've hooked these speakers up to 16 AWG copper clad aluminum and 14AWG pure copper speaker wires and these speakers sound great, both with the cheaper and the more expensive and thicker pure copper wires. Me thinks the reviewer is trying to sell expensive speaker wire. Believe it or not, Polk Audio designs its speakers to be used by average listeners with average systems and mundane, inexpensive speaker wire and still to sound FANTASTIC. I trust my ears, and I'm not sure if the reviewer has an ethical conflict of interest, or what else might be going on, but I distrust and am skeptical of this review.
