The cone takes around 3 secs to come back up after i push it down. Is this good ?

I go over all the edges with silicone sealant. After it dries it is quite leak proof.

Another reason what the trilaminate box (ply-fiberglass-mdf) is better! No leaks.

Ive covered all the edges with silicone from the inside. But there was very little space for it around the speakon connector. I guess thats the most likely site for any leak.

I mean just that. Push down the cone of the sub and wait for it to come back to its original position. This is used to check if the box is well sealed.

I took out the sub and sealed some leaks i found. Now it is much harder to push in the cone but i can hear a hissing sound from around the sub. How do i seal this ?
