Cover Dashboard Duct Hole :-( '02 M3

A while ago some guys installed aftermarket sound system and cut a hold into the duct to accommodate the Head system (Nav System). What can I use to effectively cover the hole? I'm installing a Dynavin system and don't want/need that to be open. Any suggestions?

Man that is a bummer, but I think anything to seal it would be just fine. I would use some thin plastic and try to cut it close to size and glue.

There's an adhesive foil used for taping ducts together, it's pretty easy to work with. It's also made to handle higher temps. It's about the width of duc-tape but looks like aluminum foil.
