Some 2 element car speakers are incredibly silly. They have the tweeter mounted on an extension of the woofer centre polepiece and so they don't / can't use a dustcap. Anyway, the entire woofer cone when facing upward, works like a funnel, directing dust and grit and junk down into the voice coil gap!
Cloth Grilles? Come on guys....

Car audio speakers are designed with space saving in mind, so you can build a ported box that is only 1-3 cubic feet and get the extension down to 20hz or below. Many sealed boxes have 12's in them, are ~1 cu. ft., and can play flat down to 20hz in a car. Take a look at the polk MOMO subwoofers.

Oh and those sponge pad's melted on a pair of jbl's I had but didn't effect the sq at all. The paper cones are almost always coated with waterproofing/stiffening/damping materials.

feel free to use whatever speakers you like in a car. I looked extensively around madisound and partsexpress and zalytron before picking speakers. I ended up going with Morel MDT29 tweeters in the kickpanels playing from 2000 to 20000hz and Illusion Audio ND8's in the doors playing from 2000 down to 60hz. 60hz and below is done by an ADS 312rs.2 sub in the trunk. I also had madisound design a passive crossover for me between my Morel MDT29's and a 4" audax carbon fiber midrange I bought a pair of. The freq response graphs they did are impressive, and sound great.

Pics and details can be seen at my webpage:
