I personally went with denim insulation for less of the 'itch' factor. It performed admirably in the tests I looked at, but still, fiberglass is the standard. Partially because it is super cheap, but it performs nicely too. I just didn't want any to eventually come out the ports (not extremely likely, but you never know), and end up being a nuisance. Rockwool is a decent option too, and definitely less itchy than fiberglass.
As far as performance, I can't say as of yet, since I'm about 70% done with my speakers. The only concern now is cutting the stuff since apparently it is difficult to trim down. We'll see how that goes after I get my panels glued together and bracing done. I tend to over complicate my builds, so it takes longer to get them done than most, but hey, I'm used to myself by now... :-p
I'm off to work on them now in fact. :-)
