Better designed cabinets don't "need" that much insulation in them. It's function is to "trick" the woofer into thinking the cabinet has a larger volume than it does. This is all done through the thermal expansion of air under pressure and the thermal absorption abilities of insulating materials.
Are you saying that's what I should use, or are you saying that's what Peavey might have used and they changed their mind about needing to spoof the cab volume and thus that reducing the woofer distortion is possibly not a concern?
