Subfloor Reinforcement?

I've added additional piggyback style ballast to my '06 X30. 750lbs sacs in the rear lockers and a 650 lbs integrated bow sac, all working off overflow from the stock hard tanks.

I was told that I should consider reinforcing the floor in the rear lockers because the amount of weight sitting on could cause a bow/bend in the floor. Does anyone have any experience with this issue or recommendations on how they've gone about the reinforcement?

My thinking was that you could just add an additional piece of marine plywood or HDPE under the piggyback bags to help distribute the weight a bit
