The best thing to do is to try both ways and find the best fit for your situation. I would suggest three tests:

- test with no stuffing
- test with average (say 0.5 - 1lb per cu. ft.)
- test with very tightly packed stuffing

Also try normal fibreglass - R8-R12 - it works well too and is fairly inexpensive.

Ahh okay I see what you meant.

Are there any reasons you guys can think of why I wouldn't want to absorb as much as possible??

I would say test as hooha says, otherwise it might be hard to know when you are reaching diminishing returns or overstuffing.
