Speaker protection from water

I was wondering what would be the best way to protect my speakers from any water that may leak in. Would a butter container cut in half do the trick?

Just wondering, but why would you run amps in a wet/damp environment? Water + electronics = BADDD

Yes that is what I meant, I should of clarified it more. I want to protect my speakers from any water that may leak through the window seal of the door. Just wondering what material would work best. I have a butter container cut in half with the back cut out as well. If I place this on the back of the speaker, would this provide sufficient protection? And will this affect sound quality in any way?

Which part of the speaker exactly should I prevent water from coming in contact with. Is it just the basket or the magnet as well?
