ICOM SSB and ADSP filter kit?

We are considering purchasing this component (ADSP filter kit) for quilting the noise on our ICOM SSB radio. We just finished installing the radio and really do not know how to use it yet. We got it primarily for Sailmail and talking on the morning SSB nets as we are going cruising in a couple months. While playing with the radio it seems noisy and the voices seem hard to hear through the noise.

As for interference we have our refer powered by shore power while at the dock (now ) and there are no electrical components by the radio. We use solar to charge the batteries so there is not any charger or inverter running while the radio is on.

We do have a fair amount of electrical cables running by the radio.
We do have ferrets on all the radio cables and the ICOM AT-140 Automatic Antenna Tuner and it is working.

My question is do you think it is worth it to spend the money on this component or is this problem corected by something we have not done?
There is one for sale here and it has sample sounds.
