    Not your best option. But if you already have some, it's great for filling gaps where deadener won't fit well.

    i like to used wood glue mixed with saw dust, if not resin, for sealing the seams inside a box. it get rock hard, less chemical fumes that have the potential to harm the sub, and doesn't take up as much displacement. PL200 work well too.

    wood glue and silicone should be enough as long as your cuts are nice and straight

    i tried the expanding glue, gorilla glue, once when making a sealed box, and its real messy. i wouldn't recommend it. just use silicone.
