1/8 inch closed foam.  Make sure you lightly take a da sander with 220 grit and knock the shiney top layer off the foam on both sides for good adhesion.   As for glue, I use weldwood spray grade contact adhesive and spray it through a hvlp gun with a 1.8 tip

k, sounds good. something like this? https://www.midwestfabrics.com/1-8-closed-cell-foam.html

 

i was originally planning to build an enclosure inside the door for the midrange (its deep and the door needs to be cut). however maybe free air would be easier? im worried about back wave radiating into the cab. also worried about the midbass pressure against the midrange if they share air space in the door.
