    from inside i prefer liquid nails and you should notice a major difference in output with a properly sealed enclosure

    Re: silicone?

    the gap is less than a 1mm

    liquid nails would mean i would have to rebuild the enclose again wouldnt it


    thanks for the replies

    Use caulk on the outside, works fine for me.
