No more poly fil reading, how about boom mats?

I'm new on here and have done plenty of reading about how crappy my jks stereo sound quality is. I've seen all I could ever want to know about using poly fil on here but no mention of dynamat in the sound bar. Or even these things called boom mats on crutchfield.com. They are foam pockets to help make your speakers sound better or for $9 I'm thinking about just putting them
In anyways. But has anyone tried using either dynamat or boom mats? Here's a link to the boom mats
Boom Mat 6-1/2" Speaker Baffles (Slim-line: 2-1/2" depth) Protect your speakers Regular and slim-line sizes at Crutchfield.com

Ps I'm going to Vegas for vacation on Monday, anyone have any tips for me to win big so I can dump bunches of money into the wrangler? Hah

Face it, the acoustics and speaker enclosures inside a Jeep are bad enough that using polyfill, boom mats, etc. won't make a real improvement in sound. At least no more than what the placebo effect will cause. Especially inside a soundbar or behind the front speakers. I wouldn't get caught up in it, it's like worrying about selecting the 'just right' expensive Persian rug when you live in a $9/night hotel room over the bus station.

The foam baffles make a big difference.
