ok i have to cutout the holes for my subs, then silicone the edges. how long will it take to dry so that i can mount them and test it. should i wait 24 hrs or can i wait shorter. my subs seem to be ****ing up which is why i want to test it.

wait till its not sticky anymore. or just put em in now. if they have silicone on em when u take em out just use a razor blade and get it off

That and they will take your breath away, I was waiting for some silicon to dry in my box and I stuck me head in the bx to make sure that I had got all corners well and I breathed in and almost died.

Absolutely let the stuff dry for at LEAST over night.
