Yes, but...

I used the Ultratouch denim insulation on a recent project. Much more expensive than fiberglass but that's only a few $ on a pair of speakers. One roll per cabinet should do it.

Sounds much simpler to mount a pair or two of old monkey coffins on the wall or hang them from the ceiling. $10-$20 at a thrift store or yard sale is a reasonable budget if you can't get them for...
