    silicone

    Will silicone eat the surround on a speaker?
    Like My buddy tried to tell me after you silicone your box you should wait for it to dry before you put in your sub.

    Is that true?

    Re: silicone

    Thank you.

    My door pods were leaking alittle around mounting flange on the mid and I used silicone to seal them and he said I should wait till they dry before I put my mids back in.

    Just wanted to be sure.

    Re: silicone

    No, No, No, No.
    Let me reiterate that ~ NO.

    If silicone sealant was detrimental to rubber speaker surrounds (I cannot speak to its effects on foam surrounds) then doing this would have been a really bad idea:


    See the area enclosed by the red line. The idiot that I had helping me put these 10s in their box made a slip-up and while trying to sink the mounting screws screwed up and ended up punching a very small hole in the surround of that sub. I coated that section of the surround with a thin layer of silicone sealant to make sure that very small hole did not become a larger one.

    That was about three years ago now.

    No adverse effects as of yet so I would assume there aren't going to be any.

    Re: silicone

    the fumes that build up in side the box. with No ventalation (if it is not dry) can dry the surround and make it brittle.. the actually silicone its self wont damage it.

    Well, the hole in my 10 was made the very first day I owned them before they ever saw the first watt of power coursing through the coil. I banged on 'em pretty hard for close to a year and a half before I bought the Diamond M6 12" that I run now.
    Those 10s are now in my bedroom as part of an uber-ghetto setup and still playing strong.
