Fiberglass density for bass trap

I bought some fiberglass wihch has a density of 24 kg/m3. They're one inch thick.

As far as I've read, more layers of lower density wool is better for bass traps.
Wondering if 24 kg/m3 is fine? Am I going to be alright with 6 or more layers stacked then covered with proper fabric?

Usually you'd want more dense insulations, but density isn't necessarily the most important figure. Make them as thick as you can. 6" would be a minimum with insulation that porous.
