Polyfill help

Alright, so today i wanted to polyfil the sound bar and sub woofer of my JK, but unfortunately i have not been able to find it for the life of me! Home depot didn't have it, auto zone didn't have it, hell, Bed Bath and Beyond didn't have pillow stuffer. Can anyone give me a link or a name brand or something for polyfil? i Hear dynamat but i was only able to find sound deadener online. Any help is appreciated!

Amazon.com has it I would also get some dynamat to wrap the plastic speaker enclosures prior to adding the polyfil.

Walmart, Hobby Lobby, Target. Polyfil is used mostly for pillow stuffing, grab a few old pillows :-)

I grabbed a 16oz bag, actually called premium polyester fiberfill made by Fairfield.

I did a little test of my own last night to see how a small bunch of polyfill would burn if some contacted the wires for my speakers and the polyfill caught the flame and burnt in 5mph winds in my backyard. Not making me feel too good about having 2 pillows full in my car

There would have to be a short to ground to cause a spark to ignite the stuff, then still think there is not enough voltage or amps to strt a fire

I agree. I removed mine and the OEM sound is much better without it.
