Default I Need Foam

Im looking for a few pieces of Thik foam, the type that doesnt compress under weight as if you were to kneel or step on it. I have a piece at my shop but have no clue in where to get it. Its 18x18x1" thick. It can vary a bit in thickness and dimentions but need something that doesnt crush under weight. Any help is mch appriciated.

The only place local that I know that you can get high density foam is Composites One in RI. Not cheap. If you need I have an account with them.

Audio what are we talking? I need either 3 pieces 23 or (24)(which ever is easier i can cut extra off) 12x2.5 or 3. SO in essence 23x12x2.5 in., or 23x12x3, or 24x12x2.5. or 24x12x3. Last if easiest would be 72x36x2.5 or 72x36x3. All in inches. If i get a large sheet i will cut it either way works.
Thanks
Mike

Do you know what pound density you need? 2-3 pound is the foam that is around tanks and used for floatation. Something in a 8 pound will dimple when hit with a hammer. 12 pound I think it is you can tap and will barely mark with a hammer. What are you using it for? The price goes up exponentially with strength.
