    I would reccomend an everyday clear silicone. It will do the job quite well, plus is easy to find, and doesnt cost an arm and a leg.

    Most Home Depot's, Menards', Lowes, etc. carry this.

    take it easy,

    I used to use silicone.. but I've found that latex caulk is much more suited for sealing cracks, and its not as prone to peeling off as silicone can be. Not to mention latex is washable with water... Silicone also has a noxious odor, that can affect certain types of spiders...

    Who gives a crap about spiders. Do you want one crawling up your leg while your driving? Just imagine a spider hi off silicone, lol, getting banged around by the bass. It would have one awful headache.

    actually if you have access to a nail gun that will work much better....and use lots of carpenters glue, then silicone.

    I'm for real, don't you ever see the bug man spraying silicone in your house?
    calm down man, I'm not that stupid, If you don't know what a spider is, then you don't need to be into car audio. D@mn, try to make a joke and everyone gets serious about it. Did you not see the "lol" and the big smiley face? On the serious side of things, what exactly does the odor do to the spider, in mechanical terms?

    P.S. If you have the eight legged spiders in the trunk of your car, you might want to spray before doing any installation.
