I think they say some sealants like silicone, the fumes can eat away at the speaker or something like that.


Yep.... Standard “Acetoxy” silicone sealants release acetic acid (which smells a little like vinegar) as they cur, this can attack the materials used in the speaker, “Neutral cure” silicone products reduce or eliminate the production of acetic acid while curing and are safe to use in speaker building.
