..... Do i need to wait for the glue to set/dry before i can put the sub in and start playing? Im itching to try the new sub out and just built a temporary enclosure for it

I'd give it a day. Same for silicone.

i usually do 12 hours if im in a real rush for a show but i wont take the screws out. i do every 3'' per screw if i plan on not letting the glue set the full 24 hours.

Depends on how you built it and the glue used really. I have built and used enclosures in less then a few hours(from cutting to installed/playing) before.

technically a week to be safe. 24 hours will be dry enough to play. Hell some take over a month to fully dry.

Agreed. There are many many variables to how long it takes to fully cure. For us we try and keep it at a min of 24 hours...some times when we build/adjust at a show we just roll with it though lol.

There are a lot of subs that seem dry but if you cut the bead of ca in half it's still wet in the middle. Unless I'm to lazy to put it in I usually play mine the next day.

With the CA I use for sub building, as soon as I'm done putting them together I use them....lol. Never had an issue......I should say yet.

i usually dont because im always afraid i didnt put enough activator around the spider or sometimes the glue itself. but then again when i recone i never plan to use it soon anyway

Sorry if my post was confusing. We are talking enclosure here. Small MDF enclosure (1cuft) using titebond 2 and screws (I dont have enough clamps)

From what I've heard the fumes from the glue can harm the subwoofer so I always allowed at least 24 hours to dry/air out.

I've heard fumes from silicone that someone would use to seal the box can be bad on the surround...glue is ok
