Whats wrong with Silicone???? I've always used silicone, even with a glued and screwed box, just to be sure.

I would run nice bead in on all the seams and go in with a pair of rubber gloves to finger it around and make sure every seem perfectly filled.

I was once told that when silicone cures the gases that it emits can do something to the rubber surrounds on speakers. So, I just wait until its fully cured before installing the sub. Other than that, I've always used Silicone.
