Default What to use for damping

I live here in the Philippines and I can't find some of the damping material that has been recommended for my Half Chili project.

My choices are the following:
Bonded Foam - little chopped pieces of foam that have been bonded together. Probably the densest foam available.
Closed Cell Foam - what they use to stuff couches and mattresses
Open Cell Foam - very light...least dense

I remember seeing some polyfill batting before but didn't see them in the last store I went to.

What do you suggest I use and in what thickness?? Also, do I line all of the internal walls??

Buy some cheap pillows or cushions.
look for something that says: "Filling: 100% polyester"

Tease it out and tack handfuls on with a staple gun.
Start with one side and the back.

Another thing you can use is the recycled fluff mat from underneath the carpet in an automobile.
Help some guys with funny hair bang two rocks together really hard.
