I have heard numerous great things about SPM tiles from sailorssolutions.com
Just got a box of extra tiles left over from a friend's job and I can't wait to try them out. I'll let you know how it works...

If you built your enclosure out of plywood, you might consider putting on another layer of plywood with Green Glue in between. Inexpensive and very effective - expecially good with the lower frequencies coming from a diesel genset. Their web site gives a lot of information about noise control.

What he said. We have this on our "need to do" list, since our 20 year old insulation is failing.
