Or, to put it even more to an extreme, use a tent outside. I have heard this is not a bad alternative for some projects.

Actually 'heavier is always better' is not true but 'lighter is always better' is also not true. What should be true is this: For every given absorber thickness and air gap combination there is an optimal flow resistance.
