Oh! Punny you should say that. The Bonded Logic cotton batting is really good, I second that.

32 years later I still have a scar on my head, from toddling into the racing chassis of a Tuscan my father was 'improving'

You say TVR, and I think of Granturas or Tuscans.

Except that none of those tested UltraTouch which has been shown to be better yet.

A 289 version of one of those scared the crap out of me more than once.

Where's the referenced study?

Cotton fiber is pretty large in diameter. Fiber fineness is a key parameter in closed box stuffing performance. I've tried cotton batting sold in craft stores and it wasn't anything special.

As far as wool goes, I've tried Marino wool, pretty much the finest wool and compared it to wool stuffing sold by the speaker builder suppliers and it didn't perfom much better.
