not much really, if the crack is from side to side, it could get bigger. If it's straight down then not much, could loose some bass doe. :dunno:

Best case: he will lose a little bass because of the air leak.

Worst case: it will distort the cone enough to shift the voice coil off-center causing a short.

Most likely: It will start to rattle enough so he will get fed up and replace it.

no it won't. That might be true when building a box. You aren't supposed to load the subs right after you silicone it cuz of the fumes.

How would the fumes hurt it if it's open to the outside?? That's like saying "don't paint outside, cuz you'll breath in all the fumes."

I've had silicone on this sub for a LONG time, and i guess it's not hungry, cuz it didn't eat the surround. :uh:
