Will the material be going into the sub enclosure? Or under the stairs?

Pretty sure i understand.

In which case make sure all the sides of the enclosure are solid, no rattling or panels that will vibrate easily. This may mean poping some extra screws into any timebr thats slightly lose.

You want the space to be perfectly airtight, if you can get some silicon or caulk sealer, and fill any gaps.

For lining the sides CPC have sheets of foam egg-crat/packing material that's not too expensive, it'll be worth lining the enclosure with this, and also some wadding, also available from CPC.

Wickes do a 30mm high density slab that may be suitable for internal soundproofing of your enclosure.
