    I just moved to MI from TX. I'm playing a gig tonight. One of my band's members has a mini van which we loaded up with most of our gear last night. I'm keeping my amp and bass inside but the speaker (GK 1x15 RBH) will be in the van for about 24 hours. the temp here is about 10-30 degrees. any danger?

    Nah- it should be fine, temp-wise. As to whether it'll still be there when you get back to the van, well... ;)

    I don't think it will cause any damage, but you should definitely let the speaker warm up to room temp before pushing it.
